C is for Cupcakes

We all like Cupcakes don't we?


This week I've been asked to paint a couple of old favourites.

This Plaque was bought to hang in a caravan.







A Chocolate Cupcake Plaque just for fun.









These kitchen Plaques tend to do well at Craft Fairs and I get orders to personalise them either to match a room or a favourite flavour Cupcake,


Strawberry                 Chocolate Chip with Swizzle Stick                         Cherry

My all time favourite flavour is chocolate but I'm afraid I'm bit fickle when it comes to all things 'cake' and change my favourite along with my mood, this week is the turn of  Lemon Drizzle. 
(mmmm I must think of my diet)

Do you have a  favourite flavour Cupcake?   

I'm off to have a look at all the other great blogs that take part in  Handmade Monday. I hope you'll join me. If you don't know what this blog hop is then follow the link and all will be explained.

  1. Well I can certainly agree with both of those sentiments! These plaques would brighten up any kitchen but I love the fact that one of them is destined for a caravan.

  2. These remind me so much of some of the cake plaques I do - also very popular at fairs! I sell some with the same saying as you: cake is the answer (and I truly believe it!!).
    I love the fact you do them in different flavours!
    I could not possibly tell you may favourite flavour cupcake, there are so many!
    Thank you for taking part in Handmade Monday x

  4. One of my most asked for plaques is....
    'If all else fails, eat chocolate'
    or you could substitute 'chocolate' for cake

  6. This will only apply to the geeks of the world, but you should apply the saying "The cake is a lie" to one of your plaques!

    These are great and I love the art work. Well done on these. Fantastic...as usual ;)

  20. 'Home is where the cake is' Soooo true :) not sure if i have a favourite flavour...like you I am a bit fickle...Red velvet always goes down well though!! Mind you the last time I made Red velvet cakes it looked like I had masacred a snowman as I had icing sugar and red food colouring EVERYWHERE :) Jo
