Sweet Art: Cupcakes at Rivendell

Lord of the Rings Cupcakes

I would like to take a few moments to tell you about a holiday miracle in which I played a part.

A few months ago I was contacted by Santa, who told me he was building a new reading nook for a couple of little girls. One of them was really into the elves from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and could I do a cupcake illustration loosely based on this, so as to decorate aforementioned reading nook?

"Well, Santa", I said, "Okay".

And so I got a reference picture of Rivendell...

...and set to work. I took some liberties. For instance, the elves in the stories ride ponies. But I prefer unicorns, and I reflected this preference in my artwork. The finished product is pictured above. What a lucky girl to have received such a sweet present from Santa!
