Purple is a tricky color for frosting. It can look so artificial and disgusting, but these cupcakes look perfect. This purple looks natural and delicious and not at all like poison.
I love the motif of kind of spiky flowers like this on baked goods. It contrasts nicely with the soft roundness of the cake itself, don't you think? I don't know much about flowers but I bet you guys do; are there real life spiky flowers like that out in the wild?
