CUPCAKES SERVED ACEO

I was drawing a sketch and felt like making more cupcake ACEOs so I gave this girl a huge cupcake bonnet & freckles, then realised it looked so much like Strawberry Shortcake... so there you go, no hat! Strawberry Shortcake is one of my fave 80s cartoon characters, because she was my first doll and smelled of rubberised strawberries! However, am not too keen on the revamped modern version with her in jeans, sun hat and long sleeved t-shirt; I feel it is less whimsical than the original. The ACEO is available in my Etsy shop here: "Cupcakes Served"

Talking about Strawberry Shortcake, I miss my doll - can't find it, I did remember bringing her over with her pet cat when I moved home, but she's missing now =( Anyhow lookie here I am also missing these specific SSC toys from my childhood urghh, available on Etsy though!

So adorable! I like her with that cute bow headband so I don't think I'd miss the hat!

I don't really like the new strawberry shortcake makeover either.

Yours is adorable, though!

I love that Aceo, it feels very summery with her hair flowing like it is. I know how you feel about your childhood toys as I still have mine and I don't think I'll ever give them away.
