"Bad Birthday" - Oil, 12" x 16"

This one was great fun. I found out that cupcakes dry out and sag after a few days, but icing stays remarkably stable. A slightly scalloped saucer (say that fast three times) is a nuisance to paint as an ellipse; the next time I attempt one I am going to do a grisalle, I think.
