Cherry on Top - Sold

Cherry on Top, 6x6 oil
While painting this cupcake, I kept imagining little hands reaching up to grab a taste of this enticing treat.  I recently went to my niece's son's birthday party. He just turned two years old. The simplest things put a wonderfully big smile on his face. I brought home one of the cupcakes from his party, but it flipped upside down during the drive home.  I scraped off half the icing and tried to repair it, but I definitely was not able to reconstruct it, so I painted this one instead, (although his cupcakes looked very different from this one).
So if it's my niece's son, does that make me a grand-aunt? If so, I think I'll just stick with aunt.
