Mmmmm cranberry lemonade! <3

So I've done raspberry or strawberry lemonade cupcakes before...I think now maybe I need to make some (real) cranberry lemonade. Mmm!

For this week's Picksels Challenge!

I love it! It looks good enough to eat! The colors you used are great, too!
I need a new signature...

Cute and tasty looking! Although I feel like some of the colors, especially the frosting are a bit dull and could benefit from more contrast.

Thanks everybody! <3 Y'all are so nice!

Kitsune, IDK if you make cupcakes or frosting etc., very often, but when you make something into a frosting that's a bright color (like cranberry), you have to make some kind of sauce & add it to a buttercream usually, which is made from ultra-white powdered sugar and almost-white butter and white shortening. Basically it would turn out a pink color similar to this if I made a frosting with it. I've done it with raspberries and this is about the color I get, so the frosting color is actually intentional! :) I was going for realism & trying to incorporate cranberry-type colors more than just visual "pow" on this one. (I know, I'm a realist nerd 8D)

Thanks again for commenting. Happy scavenger hunting lol

Definitely the most unique cranberry entry. I'd have to say that its a bit dull for you, because you usually have a lot of contrast, but I don't think it looks bad. I quite like the colors you used. I feel like more contrast would make it look more cartoon-y instead of smooth looking.

Great job! Now go make me an eggplant ;D

I want it. I want it in my belly. I want to eat it right now.

And yeah, I agree that more contrast would make it look weird, like since when is there shiny frosting?
