more cupcake loven

As I was cleaning out the studio, I found a tube of that modeling goo and thought I would build a cupcake. It's not finished but I said I would show and tell...so I'm showin' & tellin'. As I clean, I run back and forth to add the background....but I think all it needs now is a big ole cherry on the top.
So, any suggestions? More background? Cherry? It's very subdued so the cherry can't be very bright. And it should be three dimentional...so I have to figure out what to use for the cherry.
I have to stop now...looking at it is making me hungry....have a great day!

Yeah, its making me hungry as well.

Maybe a very diffuse strawberry? Or how about a little ballerina with tutu and such in the same tones (hues, colors?) as the rest of the peice?

The image is too soft and subtle for a cherry - well, in my humble opinion.

Regarding your comment about being grossed out by the dogs licking me after my run, I just want to clarify: They were licking my legs, not my...

I really like it so far!
How about if you paint the cherry, and then use UTEE to give it dimension & a smooth shine?

Just a Thought.

It's STILL gross Marc! Thanks for the suggestions.
Magic bartender, thanks also. I was thinking of using bees wax. The UTEE may be too glossy.
Sharon, I also thought of using a button, but puffier...got it! Use a button but use some dimentional paint on it to puff it up.
Thanks all!
