Dessertimals – Shaved Ice

Fun fact: Doctors do not know the root cause of an ice cream headache… but we all know it happens eating super tasty cold things too fast.

So you might want to slow down eating that tasty treat…. though I am not sure anyone really wants shaved ice soup.

This was one of the rare gems that came out right the first time. Copic Markers and liners were used to ake this cutie. Enjoy 🙂





Dessertimals – Ringtailed shortcake

 Ringtail Lemur attacking the whip cream on top of some strawberry shortcake. 

What style of shortcake do you like? Small disk, angel food cake, biscuit, or other? I decided to go biscuit even though I prefer angel food cake. It lets me break up the piece into layers leaving the dessert reminiscent of the lemur’s ringtail.  

Dessertimals – Moose Or Mousse

 Moose, mousse, or both? What’s really the question? Why a raspberry?

This was done with copic marker, liner, and paint pen. Raspberry because it adds the pop of color you need to make the two brown shapes stand apart. I thought about putting a chocolate curl on top but it would have made it look like a giant brown smudge from afar. 
So does the moose want the mousse or the raspberry? 



Dessertimals – Chameleon


Is this chameleon’s problem that his tongue is to sticky or is it the caramel?  

Done with copic markers and liner. It was a big question – do I make the apple green or red? Red would make it stand out. Green would make it match putting the them on equal footing. I didn’t want the apple more important than the chameleon. 

So, what’s stickier?
