Cupcake Monday! The Antique Edition
The detail on this 'antique' cupcake is just gorgeous. The leaves and the roses have gold painted edges just like those gorgeous old plates I found at the market and that shade of minty green is scrummy.
The idea of an antique cake reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where Elaine sneaks into her boss J Peterman's "small college boy minifridge" and helps herself to some cake which she then finds out is actually from "the wedding of King Edward VIIII to Wallis Simpson, circa 1937, price...$29,000." But the impact of the threat of searing gas pains and explosive diarrhea is short lived and she makes her way back in later to eat more. And then tries to replace it with a store bought cake from Entenmanns.
Oh how I miss Seinfeld, no one runs it in the UK! Must get DVDs...
