Hard-pressed to pick a favorite from the collection of six frosting flavors, this imaginative cookie with a splash of milk definitely brings a smile. Each paper cupcake is oh so tasteful, though not in a typical dessert sense. Instead, they are elegant and long-lasting.
I asked Justina to share a bit about her cupcake design process:
Well, as you may already know, I've been obsessed with making paper food for a while now - maybe it has something to do with this "logic": paper -> books -> stories -> imagination -> magical otherworld where things aren't exactly what they seem. The whole cupcake series was also prompted by a study on curved folding, which I had neglected to explore before, due to the fact that it's not as collapsible as straight edges. But to me, there is just something beautiful and whimsical about smooth lines. So I cooked up a way to present different curved folding techniques as cupcake frostings, each named after a paper product.
o Classic Literature: palatable to most; explainable by few
o Blank Notebook: a flavour that pairs well with your every thought
o Wrapping Paper: cinnamon, peppermint, nutmeg, and confetti - YAY
o Ticket Stub: a flavour that is familiar and exquisite to you only
o Quarterly Magazine: flavour of the season, please inquire
This personalized Love Letter arrived in pristine condition. Of course it has a place of honor on my desk! Justina's degree in structural engineering assures she has packaging down to a science.
I'd be remiss if I didn't share a few pics of the gorgeous folded paper hanging decorations and lighting she creates as well.
