Have you ever seen such smooth, shapely fondant? This giant cupcake is like an immaculate drawing come to life. So round, so curvy, such enticing sprinkles. If you'll excuse me, I have a cake to seduce.
Now that Santa's work is done, he's heading back to the North Pole to sip some peppermint schnapps and take his boots off by the fire. Maybe the reindeer will get some extra carrots and the elves will get a week at a spa. But before you know it, work starts up again. Gotta get that naughty and nice list going.
So much cupcake decorating is based on the notion of piling heaps of stuff on top of the cake, it's refreshing to see someone make use of negative space here, so to speak. A creamy pool of frosting in the middle of the cake is a nice change!
I'm not sure if it's on purpose but the number 80 on this cake looks like it's made out of some magical fried potato concoction and it's singing to me! It must be my slow carb diet brain talking but somebody pass me the numbers and leave me be!
