Best Stonehenge Cupcakes Ever!

Until we saw these cupcakes we did not think it possible to do a good cupcake Stonehenge. But this–this is outstanding! Unsurprisingly, it was made in the Stonehenge State, in what could well be the Stonehenge replica capital of the world, Seattle Washington, the city we want to live in.

What makes this good? The green icing, grey stones, correct or nearly correct proportions, even stone shaping and texturing. What else, class? Yes, that is right–the inner trilithon horseshoe faces the three lintel stretch in what remains of the outside circle. The only thing that would tempt us to subtract druids is that we were not offered a taste. Still, this is magnificent. Even the blue stones are included. The artist really looked at Stonehenge and tried to make this a true replica. We are impressed.

Score: 7½ druids or 9+ druid dwarfs. Well done!

That ends our speed posts for this week. If we should indeed perish, many many Stonehenge replicas would never get posted (unless some brave soul picked up the torch), and the world would probably be better for that. But chances are, next week we will be back trying your patience with more nonsense and tracking the Stonehenge-building virus as it ripples through the world population. Until then, fair folk, happy henging! And wish us luck.

Come on, Irene!

Cupcake-henge: You know you want it!

It’s carbhenge, and you know you want it! But to get a taste of tokyopop’s yummy chocolate and strawberry cupcakes with candy Stonehenge, you would have had to be in her Art History class. We guess that these must have disappeared too soon for the sunset alignments to be checked!

Warning: do not click on tokyopop (Keri Chan)’s photostream link if you do not want to look at things like Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Pops, or Key Lime Pie Cupcakes, or Creme Brulee Birthday Pie, or an incredible-looking birthday cake with Domo Kun on top. There’s more like that. She’s a serious baker. You have been warned!

Food is distracting. Let’s think about henges. This is clearly a replica of Stonehenge as it is now, not as it was. Fallen stones abound and only short sequences of linteled stones remain in the circle. By the way, we see that Keri Chan lives just outside of Seattle, Washington. Of course.

Score: 5½. Cupcakes are a difficult medium, and tokyopop is the kind of person we like to keep on very friendly terms with. This is completely unrelated, Keri, but we have a birthday coming in early May. Ahem. 😉 Just sayin’.
