Cupcake #42 **sold**

This cupcake totally amazes me. Somehow Scott has taken a subject that admittedly can be kind of feminine, did it up in blueberry and olive green, and now it looks so conservative it reminds me of business casual and button down collars. How did he do that? Really, that's pretty cool! The frosting has a touch of navy blue with three plump berries perched on top. The background is a great example of a neutralized color, olive green is made by mixing a bright green with a little of its complementary or opposite color on the color wheel. That would be red, so if you are a painter give that a try some time, and see the whole world of forest and mossy greens you can make when you add a touch of red!
