Ooh crunchy chocolate butterflies! Will you grace every dessert I ever eat?
I love a repeating pattern, especially on food. Even better when it's done with something as delicious and natural as blueberries. Nothing fussy, no artificial coloring or hours slaving over perfectly smooth icing, just a fantastic and undoubtedly delicious polka dotted tower of celebration. I'll toast to that!

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?
Our adorable submitter here says "This is my first attempt at cake decorating. Hope you like!"
I LOVE! That cloud is so happy to be a part of your first decorating foray and we are happy to have the chance to tell you what an awesome job you did! I've never decorated a cake and you can be sure that if I tried, my first attempt would be a sad sight indeed.
Oh man is there a lot going on here. Those cupcakes alone look light and moist and delightful and then you go and pile on some pretty, fluffy, buttery icing mmmmmmm. And THEN you make little heart cookies and you ice them BUT you use MORE icing to make them all fancy and swirly and amazing. Then you PUT IT ON THE CUPCAKE! I'm so exhausted. I can't eat. I need a nap.
The popcorn is the real star here as it's not real popcorn at all, it's marshmallows! Flawless, creative, inspired, amazing marshmallows simply twisted to look like popcorn. This is what keeps me going and gets me out of bed in the morning, chocolate cupcakes, hand made wrappers, and marshmallow popcorn. I can live to see another day!
