In 1890, French Impressionist artist, Claude Monet painted a series of haystacks in the fields of Giverney in France. Each painting was different because the movement of sunlight on the haystacks changed their colour at different times of the day. In May 2010, Artistic Director, Sheryl Fong created a small pointed Cupcake, her partner, an ex-art teacher, stated that it resembled Claude Monet’s Haystacks. It was from that moment that the Mini Monet Cupcake was born.
......... Our story is that Claude was handed a range of our Mini Monet Cupcakes back in the 1890s and he loved our cupcakes so much; he decided to paint them as he ate them in fields of Giverney.
The story behind our 'Cupcake Impasto' is that an artist named Vincent was eating our larger, 'Cupcake Impasto' at a night cafe after a few glasses of Absinthe. As he held our Lemon flavoured 'Cupcake Impasto' up to the night sky, he saw exploding cupcakes on a Starry Night.
