Taking a quick break from holiday promos to show off a recent custom banner for Boy Meets Cake, tales from a blogger on a quest to create the perfect cupcake.

november 2010 - free pink cupcakes desktop

I am so very late with November’s desktop wallpaper that I decided there wasn’t much point to working with a Thanksgiving theme. Instead, here’s a free desktop wallpaper for everyday use. I’ve been working on several custom cupcake-related projects lately, so I have the sweet treats on the brain. I’ll do something seasonal for Christmas soon.

Also available: A “flipped” version for those of you who keep your desktop icons on the left and a blue version for those who aren’t as fond of pink as I am (unfathomable!) Enjoy!

the hungry doodler

I’ve been keeping up with my weekly print-a-doodles. Here are two of the most recent ones:

yum yum pizza! technicolor cupcakes

I realized as I was finishing up the pizza that my last four drawings have been about food. The other night I was craving pizza like mad after watching Gordon Ramsey overhaul an Italian pizzeria on an episode of Kitchen Nightmares, so I admit that doodle was entirely inspired by my gurgling tummy. And we all know I have a fondness for cupcakes–or cake in any style, really.
