There's a pretty little bird sitting on my cupcake




Recently I was asked to create some photographs for a group of year 11 girls at my daughers school for a little cookbook that they had designed. My brief - to be very cute, lots of pink, pretty and full of fun. I played around with some little birds, butterflies and lots of cake sprinkles and decorations and I had such a lovely time taking these images. I just love the cake isle in the supermarket, there are so many fantastic little decorations to choose from and the colours and designs of the cupcakes are amazing.


I know there are many more designs and decoration available in the U.S. that I have seen in magazines that we Australian's can only dream of.

















Thank you to all who leave comments for me, I just love receiving them and I do treasure them all.

  3. Happy Pink Saturday, Coty.

    They must have been thrilled with these images. Your talent is such a wonderful gift. You truly have an eye for all that is beautiful.

    I actually had a pink cupcake at work this week. It wasn't nearly as beautiful as yours, but it was quite delicious.

  24. Coty, this is absolutely adorable! I love your pinks and those delightful birds. When I was little, my whole world was pink. I even convinced my parents to buy me a pink telephone for my room. I think I was more excited over that pink phone than any piece of jewelry I ever received! Well... almost. ;-)

    There are some people in this world who just make it better for having passed through it with their artist's touch, and you are certainly one of those people. Truthfully, I am speechless over the artistry on these posts. It is loveliness personified.

    I could spend all day absorbed in these pictures of your work. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. If you have a book, I would love to know about it. I guess I had best search through your blog to determine the answer to that.

    Wishing you a lovely day...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)
