Summer Glau first caught my attention in the Firefly series as River Tam, and she’s held onto my attention ever since then. I’ve always wanted to meet her in person to see how much of her personality matched the amazing characters she’s played on TV. Many people at the Emerald City ComicCon were amazed at how tiny Summer Glau was in person, but I was more amazed by how big her co-star Adam Baldwin is. I’m always in awe of people who combine multiple talents into one. In Summer Glau’s case I enjoy the way she incorporates her skill as a dancer with the characters she plays, and that’s why I decided she deserved a cupcake.
Either she’s a very good actress or she was very hungry because she seemed to be genuinely overcome with excitedness that a local bakery had chosen her to receive a cupcake. She is just as cute and sweet as her characters would have you believe, and I hope to see her in many more great sci-fi roles. Here’s a close-up of that Guinness cupcake.
I chose this logo mostly because it required only melting two colors of chocolate. I wasn’t sure if I could get the line configuration down because the details are so small, but I think it turned out ok. I really enjoy making Serenity/Firefly related things because I think the series was highly underrated, and I’m so happy Ms. Glau came into town to give me an excuse to make this cupcake.
