Cupcake #72 **sold**

A kiss on top makes everything good! A sweet little chocolate cupcake with a mound of vanilla icing, finished with a stripey Hershey's kiss. Surrounded by a warm terracotta red, this is a warm, yummy little piece, you can almost smell the chocolate! Browns, including this terracotta color, are all "tertiary colors." We all know the primary colors, red, yellow, and blue. The secondary colors are made by mixing two of the primaries, like red and yellow making orange. Tertiary colors take it one step further, adding the third primary, in this case a touch of blue moves orange into the browns. The tertiaries can be beautiful rich complex colors, or mud, depending on how you use and mix them, experiment with them on your palette!
