Re: Cup Cake Pink

After trying the cupcakes in a range of tasty flavours they were narrowed down to blue and pink. Help choosing one would be appreciated.

Glad you like it, sonofafish. As much as the word play and visual elements appealed to me, I did not consider enough whether it would be something people would actually want to wear on a shirt.

Interesting, but I don't think that's the issue, because nachos, bacon, and cookies are all doing well. The design is beautiful. I think what's off putting to voters (and this is just my theory) is that it reads as "cake cup." As you know, the tiniest negative detail can outweigh the positives for a voter. Anyway, don't feel bad, your lines and your colors are superb, and you'll get 'em next time!

That's actually why I voted for it. ;) Then again, I'm not quite typical at times...
