Holiday Sweetness: A Roundup of Custom Holiday Artwork

Custom order, Golden Girls Cupcakes
Some may say that the joy of the season comes from giving, but we know the truth is the most fun part is the getting--and the ripping open--of awesome presents. Cakespy art figured into giving and getting this year; here is just a small sampling of some of the fun custom commissions which were opened (to extreme joy, hopefully!) this holiday season:

Custom Holiday order, Family of Cuppies in Seattle

For one lucky Seattle baker, a portrait of her family (as cupcakes) near the Space Needle;


Custom order, Cuppies at Kerry Park with Bunnies
For another Seattle family, a portrait with bunnies;

Custom order

For one family of music, book and cupcake enthusiasts, a family portrait (complete with their other Cakespy artwork in the background);


Part 1 of 3--Holiday order

For another recipient, this puppy-and-Cuppie;


Custom order for Taylor

As a surprise commission for the proprietress of a rubber stamp company, a crafty little Cuppie;


As another sweet surprise for someone really sweet, a multilayered diorama;

Custom order (for a friend)
For a dear friend, a collection of memories and inside jokes;

Custom order, Cuppie the Playwright
For another, Cuppie becomes muse for a playwright recipient;

Custom order, Cuppie in the Philippines
Of course, all of this being quite exhausting, we'll close out with a trip to the scenic Taal Volcano in the Philippines.
Thank you so much for your business and fun orders in 2008!

These are amazing!! I'm so glad you posted them. You wouldn't by any chance make reproductions of the "Be Creative Everyday" one would you?

Being the proud owner of a Halloween Cuppie I enjoyed looking at the great artwork! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Golden Girls = best EVER! These make me want to commission something, I love the diorama!

Someone's been very, very busy!

December 27 | Unregistered CommenterCookie Jill

Just excellent!! Great stuff!

All of them fanatastic, though I must admit I am in love with the diorama. Takes me back to days in school.

I got a Cuppie artwork for Christmas from my husband, it wasn't a commissioned piece, but I still love it--it was the bride and groom Cuppies. Thank you for working with my husband to get it. I've gone on and on about how I would love to do our kitchen in Cuppie the cupcake stuff, or at least just have some of your artwork hanging around. They're so cute! Then, I opened that one up Christmas morning. It's my favorite gift! You do a terrific job!

Jessie, oh, I see my email was a little behind the posts! Great custom work! Love it!

Ashu, the recipient of Golden Girls, LOVED it and is so so excited that we got two of her favorite things in one picture -- cupcakes and golden girls...!

Though I love love love all of them, my favorite is Blanche being unwrapped!

You are truly amazing. xoxox B

I was the lucky recipient of one of your lovely pieces of artwork from my good friend The Caked Crusader when I left my last job. It's a cake knitting party (knitting is my obsession - although I don't often say no to a Caked Crusader cake!) and it is proudly displayed in my kitchen.

Such adorable watercolors. I was pleasantly surprised with the TAal volcano. I'm originally from the Philippines, you see!
Wishing you a fabulous and prosperous New Year to you and Cuppie!

Your work is not only beautiful but has humor behind it. I always love the little details and references you make in each piece. Congrats on all the great things that have happened to you this year and i wish you the best for 2009. Happy new year!

Got the cupcake drinking Diet Coke for Christmas. So cute!
Love your work, and share your obsession :)

Thank you so much everyone! It was so nice to hear your sweet comments after a busy holiday season--it seems like all I did was paint for a month! Not a bad way to while away a month but it's nice to look around and breathe too. :-) It was nice to hear from some of the recipients too--I always love knowing that the pieces went to good homes. Thank you again!!!
