Little Baking Cup Dress

Kara Miller is taking cupcake art to the world of fashion.

For her Senior Art Gallery Show at Ramapo College (NJ), Miller created a dress called the “Little Baking Cup Dress,” made of hundreds of pink and white cupcake wrappers with Sarovski crystals sewn along the bust line.  Miller also made a tiara with royal icing and Swarovski crystals.




Cupcake Art by 64 Colors

After my post about the Blue Q Cupcake Shopper by the fine folks of 64 Colors, I took a tour of the 64 Colors photostream.  And what d’ya know: more cupcakes!

Also, I checked around the internet, and as I far as I can tell everything here was custom, either one-of-a-kind and already sold or for a show. However, if you like 64 Colors and you don’t mind your merch not having a cupcake on it, check out their online store or search for them at Rotofugi.

Cupcake Art by Nessa Guillet

By on Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

These fanciful pointillist cupcake scenes are the work of Nessa Guillet, artist and graduate of Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.  While Nessa’s work covers many other themes, as a fellow cupcake lover Nessa especially wanted to share these pieces with All Things Cupcake.

Regarding the inspiration for her art, Nessa says, “My art is really an expression of my love of daydreaming as well as dreaming (both as an adult and as a child). I like to imagine worlds that I could be a part of.” As far as cupcakes are concerned, “Red velvet and anything dark chocolate related are my all time favorite flavors. I am in the process of trying to create a breakfast cupcake involving a poached egg, rosemary, and maple syrup covered bacon…we’ll see how it goes : )”

While Nessa says that she does not presently have original artwork or prints for sale, she is more than happy to take commissions. You can contact Nessa at nessa.guillet(at)

Cakespy Shop Grand Opening

By on Monday, May 10th, 2010

While the news about Cakespy opening her own gallery broke last month, the Cakespy Shop grand opening was only just this last Saturday.  Since I live down the street from Capitol Hill’s newest cupcake art space, I go to stop by and join the party.

Cakespy Shop was packed by a rotating crowd of well-wishers and art buyers. I expected there to be a good crowd (we do love our cupcakes and cute art in this town), but this was a really good showing even taking that into account.

I admit, the Cakespy appeal was probably helped just a tiny bit by the free Trophy Cupcakes and complimentary performance by Mr. Cakespy’s band, Exohxo. The cupcakes were delicious and adorably appointed with images from Cakespy’s “Scenes from Capitol Hill” series and Exohexoh’s charming melodies and singing violins made a lovely accompaniment.

Exohexoh: I can't believe that an 8 person band could fit in this store, but they did it.

Sweet Deal: Cakespy buys her own art gallery

By on Saturday, April 10th, 2010

art by Cakespy (who else?!)

In my time writing with ATC, I’ve seen a lot of things cupcake: clothing, tattoos, furniture, events, drawings, and of course the genuine article in many shapes and sizes. What I have not yet seen is a cupcake-themed art gallery.  Until now.

The beloved Emerald City-based and cupcake-themed artist Cakespy just bought her own art gallery in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. As of April 1st, Cakespy, a.k.a. Jessie Oleson, and her husband became owners of Bluebottle Art Gallery. They will keep the gallery open as they transition and will have a grand-opening/re-opening party on May 8th when Bluebottle officially merges with Cakespy Shop.  As you might expect, the event will feature cupcakes as art and in their edible form.
