Cupcake Dance by PixelKitties Cupcake Dance by PixelKitties
Sometimes I make art to make people smile. Sometimes I make art to get the weird ideas out of my head and into the real world. And sometimes, on those rare occasions, I get to do both!

Let me just say, I am NO fan of the infamous fan-fic Cupcakes in any of its myriad of horrific forms. That being said, the animated version has a dance number that is all kinds of adorable. So cute that some days I watch it just to feel happy. It's like a perfect, tropical island of cute in a sea of soul-crushing horror.

SOOOO After the MLPFIM season finale, I had this odd idea of Cadence and Chrysalis doing the oddly adorable cupcake dance. The idea wouldn't go away and so- A THING is born.

For context, here is just the video of the dance number set to some sweet Andrew WK accompaniment- [link]

Cadence is going to have her own version of cupcakes with Chrysalis. The real question now is who will do the cutting?

I had never seen this piece before this past weekend... and then someone stopped by my booth at Ponycon with a copy. I ended up with the song stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to wander over to your booth until the next day, and by then all that was left was the 4x7 version... but I did get the last one of those! Yay!

Read Cupcakes, instantly drew parallels to Meet the Medic. A fanfic was born! A shipping fic. Between Pinkie Pie and the readers.

Sometimes my brain makes no sense.

BTW, you used "myriad" wrong. You don't need an "of" after it, that's like saying "a blue of chair".

I'm with you on the Cupcakes issue. I've never read it, but you can't look into the MLP fandom without encountering it in some form.

So a part of me wonders just who would play the role of Pinkie Pie in this situation... But on a more sane note, this is wonderfully drawn and cute as can be. Nicely done.

Thinking back to this scene in the original video, I'd say that Cadence/Cadance/Princess Mi Amore Cadenza would replace Pinkie, while Chrysalis would replace Rainbow Dash (just guessing from the placement, as in the original R.D was on the left while Pinkie was on the right).

My limited exposure to Cupcakes (outside of someone giving me the tl:dr of the plot) has been the "100% cleaner version" of the animation, which was pretty much just the dance number, so as much as I hate the fic and the animation, I both get this and find it hilarious.

Well, if the layout is meant to be the the same as the vid, it would seem that Cadance is about to partake in some well deserved payback and that soon Chrysalis's legs won't be the only part of her anatomy that is full of holes.

I thought about that. But I have to question what Changeling would taste like. Or if Cadance would really have the mental state for such an act. *starts waiting for the inevitable fics*
