Homage to the Hostess Cupcake by Alchemical Homage to the Hostess Cupcake by Alchemical
RIP, my love.




This is my attempt at doing something relevant. The white frosting loops were done with a Sharpie oil-based paint pen. Some touch ups with a dotting tool.

I applied a soft light filter to this and sharpened the image a bit. Taken in indirect natural light.

I have more nail art on my blog: [link]

"Finger lickin' good" is the first thing that came to mind, pardon the pun. =P

Nice job, only thing to improve would be changing the black to a "chocolate brown".

Thankfully I won't miss it as here in Mexico the cupcake already has existed for ages as a clone called "Pingüino" (Penguin in Spanish) [link]

It is brown, that's Essie's Little Brown Dress. It just photographs awfully dark sadly. It wears a bit dark too.

I think Hostess was shut down for two reasons,
1: Health issues
and 2: Money loss. People started buying cheaper store brand things instead of what Hostess made.
I'll miss it though. But that is a really good picture =D

The Baker strike back in 2011 crushed their sales and were on the verge of bankruptcy since then and finally decided to end it come Nov 16th.

I used to devour twinkies and cupcakes as a kid like they were going out of style! These days, my sweet tooth has faded, and I almost get a bit sick just thinking about it :( Didn't help that I read the ingredients either. The creme (note, it's not "cream", and it's not just because they want a fancy French-esque spelling) is what makes me the queasiest. You won't find actual dairy anywhere on the list. Instead, it's basically a ton of sugar (so bad, but so yummy), polysorbate (a synthetic egg-substitute emulsifier), and cellulose gum (think hair gel).

On the other hand, great job on the nails :) It really does look like frosting.
