Cupcake Art

Cupcake art is an artform that gained popularity during the 1950's alongside ice cream and milkshake art. However, unlike the latter art category, cupcake art has more diversity in its depiction while still keeping the sweetness of its design.

Cupcakes come in several different varieties and this is shown in the art that depicts them. While some still keep the delightfully simple designs that typify ice cream and milkshake art, such as in the works by Serena Bowman, others choose to showcase the decadent richness of the cupcake in the same way that regular cakes are. An example of this treatment is seen in the 'Cupcake' series by SD Graphics Studio where they use rich, deep colors such as red and blue in order to depict this delightful indulgence.

Cupcake art can either be portrayed by itself of with text to clarify its meaning. For example, in Molly B.'s portrayals of cupcakes known as 'So Sweet' and 'The Sweet Life', cupcakes and typography are combined in rich, vintage colors in order to portray the message that it really is the simple joys in life that make it worth living. Likewise the vintage pop art depiction of 'Lavender Cupcake' urges the viewer to 'Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake' in order to portray that most of life's problems aren't unsolvable and that sometimes stepping away and enjoying something else can help provide clarity to a hectic situation.

Cupcake art has also found a place in whimsical artwork, thanks to its appeal to children and stylization potential. In the work, 'Sweet Cherry Nip' by Jennifer Nilsson, a cute mouse-like creature is biting into a brightly colored cupcake while hearts float in the off-white background. The use of a cupcake in this work is perfect since the sweet nature of the cake lends itself to the delightful atmosphere and cheery design that is embodied in this work.

Cupcake art has a lot to offer, since its simple design and variety allow it to be a sweet decorative option in any home.
