Cup Cake Skulls: Hostess of Death and Inks

I wanted to participate in Arts Benicia's Small Works art show this year and I had planned to submit 4 pieces though do to my own poor time management (and usually putting too much on my plate) I was only able to get one done on time.
Hostess of Death.
When I started working on this project I knew I wanted to do something with skulls. I started doing some Dia De Los Muertos kind of sketches, but I couldn't get them to look the way I wanted and I asked Laura what I should do. She said I should so something like the Gloom Cupcake painting that I did for her last year. I thought that was a good idea, but I wanted to incorporated a better skull into the piece. So I drew a cupcake with a skull on it. It kinda looked like a Jeremy Fish, piece who has an awesome graphic style, so I went ahead and designed 4 different Cup Cake Skulls.

Now I just have to wait to see if my piece is excepted. Though I have an in with one of the judges, so I am optimistic.

I have the other 3 started, they are already inked I just need to paint them. I plan on painting them this Sunday, After I get my homework done and get ahead on CT
Deadly Frosting
This was the first one that I drew that made me want to create the other ones.
The Gourmet in the End
I guess this is my gourmet one seeing as it has the cinnamon stick in them.
Sprinkles of the Dead
SPRINKLES! That is the only thing that this one is missing, when I did the original sketch for this one I did a little burst with the word SPRINKLES which was one of my favorite parts though I feel like it would break from the style of all the other ones.

Now I just need to find some frames that these pieces will fit into.
