The Creation of the "Let Them Eat Cake" Logo

This is a poster of the logo now available in my Esty store
Lindsey Schortz of Let Them Eat Cake Bakers in lovely Belfast, Maine really liked the looks of my "Just Call Me Cupcake" design below and wondered if we could use the cupcake and the retro style of the design to create a nice logo for her which would then be translated into a business card, Facebook masthead, Cafe Press store design and general all around design element to market her beautiful baked goods. Lindsey is famous for brownies, shortbread and wonderful coffee cakes plus so much more, she uses all natural ingredients - organic or sourced locally wherever possible and practical. 
This design is available in my Cafe Press store
 So off I went to my drawing board and came up with an idea Lindsey liked immediately.....thank you Lindsey!
...and the tracing and painting began. I just love creating type by hand....it soothes my fevered brow...somewhat akin to quiet meditation.
The Facebook page masthead

Some fun products from the Let Them Eat Cake Bakers Cafe Press store...and below
a close up of that design....
Here's a link to Lindsey's website  (designed by our own beloved Thierry Bonneville ) where you can order her divine products which are also available at the Belfast Coop and Glendarragh Lavender Shop, Camden Maine...there they have the most delicious lavender shortbread made by Lindsey with their own lavender.
Now let's be off and eat some cake...no really!!
