Great work, Patricia.  Nice job on the folds in baking cup. 

I'll have to give this one a try.

 :thankyou:  Mea, as always I really enjoyed the lesson. However, once again, it looks easier than what it is, I struggled with those folds. Anyway, it was interesting and I learned something new.

This was an enjoyable lesson.  Loved learning how to make the folds in the baking cup.


Need to do better in making the blueberries (chocolate chips???)  look more like they were deeper in the cupcake rather than sitting on top.

Your comments gratefully accepted.  Do try this lesson.  It is really a good one for people who want more practice in "going dark."

 :clap: :clap: :clap: A good job Mea. It amazes me how dark you can get your drawings.  I am much more timid and as Dennis so rightly says, I am afraid of the darks.

Thanks. Actually, Patricia, I look at this now and see places where it could have been darker, even though it looked too dark at the time.

  Here is my drawing of the cupcake.  Thank you Nolan for a great class.  The folds in the paper and the crunchy topping was interesting.

Nice work on the cupcake, Kathy.   Maybe it's the photo, but the recesses of the folds could have been darker.

I really liked doing that lesson - nice to learn how to do the folds.
