Remember a few months ago when I blogged about Anselmo Swan, the artist who paints hyper-real cupcakes and other sugary treats? Well, two very wonderful (and sneaky) people* gave me a special gift - one of his paintings! It's so great, I just have to share. Cause I know you like sugar, too.
Looks even better than the real thing, huh? That is actually the very first Hostess cupcake I have ever eaten. It seemed wrong to have that painting and not actually eat one. Which brings up my tally of Hostess ultra-processed snack cakes up by one point:
My Lifetime Consumption of Hostess Snack Cakes To Date:
Ho Hos: 0
Suzy Q's; 0
Ding Dongs: 0
Well, what I lack in consumption of these junkie treats, I will make up for now - at least by looking at my painting!
And it seems that many crafty types have paid homage to the Hostess Cupcake, in all shapes and sizes:
- Small: A knitted Hostess cupake hat by Flickr user beetsie.
- Large: A cupcake on wheels at last year's Burning Man festival.
Now that's a lotta sugar. Wheeeeeee!
