Yummy Strawberries

Yummy Strawberries and kiwi on a cupcake, now that's divine.  As usual I'm drooling over my keyboard as I write my Cupcake Inspiration Challenge post.  And as usual there is lots to be inspired by in this photo - the colors, the swirls and textures, the fruit even the arrangement, it reminds me of a flower.  What do you see?  

Our sponsor this week is Sparkle Creations.  Check out the CIC blog to see some creations made with Sparkle Creations images.

I happen to love cupcake images and have a few (okay more than a few) and when I saw that cuppie with the berries and kiwis on it I immediately knew which image I was going to be using.  I have a strawberry buddy and we always send each other cards and presents with a strawberry theme.  This has been going on for a long time.  Would you believe it's over 30 years and whenever a package arrives I'm still exited to see what's going to be in the box.  And when I'm out shopping I'm always on the lookout for fun strawberry items.  Sometimes I forget where I put them and can't find them when I'm ready to send them, then it's always a fun surprise to find them again.
