On Thursday night I went to the free Liza concert on Coney Island with the Prof, Manta, and Lawman and it was FABULOUS. Much like Liza herself.
If you've never seen Liza in concert, I highly recommend it. I've seen Liza on Coney Island twice before and she's always given an awesome, high energy show. And you can tell that she thrives on it. This past concert she had just flown in from Europe and was jet lagged and seemed to have a bit of a cough. As someone who always gets sick when I travel internationally I completely sympathize.
Anyway, we all had a great time at the concert, but I felt bad that Liza looked a little sad that she hadn't been at 100%. So when I got home I decided to make some Liza cupcakes. Because cupcakes always cheer me up when I'm blue...
When I was trying to think about what kind of cupcake Liza would be there was really only one option--Funfetti, of course! Like with my Chow Chow cupcake I started by going through my Liza photos from the concert for reference and I did some cartoon sketches in my handy dandy notebook then I whipped up some vanilla buttercream frosting and created a paint palette.

Tada! Liza as a Cupcake!
