Children Portraits: Delia and her Cupcake

Cupcakes are on the rise. They are all the craze. Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? Some brides and grooms are passing on wedding cakes and going for cupcakes. I don’t blame them. They are delicious. The frosting, their individual size, the scrumptious cake…yum! How can you go wrong with small personalized cakes?

Now, you can eat a cupcake systematically by trying to combine the perfect amount of icing and cake. You can eat the cake first and save the icing for last. Or you can go straight to the icing. What’s your technique? As a kid, I went straight for the cake and saved all the icing for the end. Now that I am older and wiser I try to combine each bite with a combination of both cake and icing.

I had a family shoot last week that ended with a chocolate cupcake and white frosting. Check out the pure bliss from this little one.

True cupcake passion.

Is that the "I just ate all the frosting" smile?

Sometimes I feel like this when I eat cupcakes. I eat too much with each bite and don't savor it.
