cupcake painting

i have painted on fabric since the sixties .that is when i started with batik by melting down crayons in an electric fry pan from Goodwill , painting on muslin, and then over dying with Rit dyes. one set of curtains later i found out about procion dyes and paraffin and bee's wax and made art to wear in the form of sundresses.
i have also painted with food coloring mixed into frosting and made a batch of cup cakes for HD birthday again this year . i like to bring these kinds of treats to Easter brunches and potluck gatherings . using the lids of yogurt containers with dollops of icing in the middle , i added drops of food coloring to paint my waves and palms and suns. a slim brush and a flourish made for frothy waves.
they were a hit for dessert.
This is art  that you can eat!

i have been painting cupcakes for mucho many years and by the time i finish the icing i forget to eat lunch! chocolate usually lingers just under the colorful cream cheese frosting. sonja
