I designed this for the paper collage contest. My starting point was an old cookbook from 1933 that had some great recipes for frosting. I copied some of the pages and cut them out for the cup cake tops. I was also interested in the idea of tissue paper and how it could be layered. And to give this design some bold color, I used origami paper which cuts up nicely. I did struggle with getting my cut design into the computer (my scanner is quite grumpy these days)...I finally photographed the artwork but had to tweek it to get the colors close to the original.
