A bright mound of frosting with a dash of sprinkles is like a party on a cake. I'd be willing to be eaten if I could get invited to a party like that.
First, I apologize that I was unable to find a photo of this cake with a slice taken out of it. It's red velvet and I'm sure devastatingly beautiful. I'm super impressed with the buttercream piping skills on display here. Those roses are GORGEOUS. So I guess I can see why they didn't want to slice it in the photo but come on, throw us a bone.
I know most of us here are a bit too young to have experienced a proper soda fountain chocolate malt with a paper straw, but the evocative Norman Rockwell-esque image endures and fills us with nostalgia nonetheless. If only I could drink a cupcake.
I've had a photo of bird shaped cookies on my computer desktop for approximately a skrillion years now. These cupcakes win. The home decor inspired use of a floral with polka dots is genius! In fact, I may use this as inspiration to redecorate my home. Cupcakes, you win!
