Cupcake #29 **sold**

This cupcake, in addition to being perfectly gorgeous, is a great example for a little color theory lesson. We are all familiar with the primary color triad, being red, yellow, and blue. But this piece uses a secondary color triad, being green, orange, and purple. All of these colors are made by mixing two of the primaries together, and sit at equal distances from each other on the color wheel. That's what gives this piece such a nice sense of balance. Well that, and the fact that none of the blackberries are rolling off the top! A sweet addition to any collection!
