Mmm, blackberries and chocolate, who would have thought? Purple is one of my favorite colors, especially when it is paired with it's neighbor on the color wheel, blue. Even the cup has a hint of color. Repeating a color in a composition makes the eye move around and makes a piece pleasing to look at. And of course the fact that it's a cupcake makes it pleasing also! Enjoy the first cupcake of 2010, there will be many more to come!
