I vant to raise your blood sugar!
I like the age-old motif of hearts and keys. It never goes out of style and always seems so genuine and proper. I also like gags involving swallowing a key like in "Arrested Development" so with these cupcakes I'm all set.
I'd like to see a crew of fashion designers work with a bunch of pastry chefs to design amazing desserts. We could mash up Project Runway and one of those Top Chef whatevers and make a kajillion dollars! I could see this as Betsy Johnson's entry for a super simple petit fours.
Wouldn't this springtimey cake make a lovely hat for a garden party? I went to a wedding performance art thing once where there was a girl dressed as a wedding cake with real cake on her hat. She wandered through the party and bent down so people could take bites. I'm pretty sure anyone with an edible hat would be the life of the party.
Since my nephew was born I've been buying him ugly dolls and he loves them! They're so snuggly and weird looking and charming and have so much character. Maybe for his fifth birthday I'll try these cupcakes out. I have 8 months to practice.
