I didn’t know what to expect when meeting Edward James Olmos at the Emerald City ComicCon. He has played such powerful roles that I felt a little intimidated to meet him in person. I find his activism work and passion to be very inspiring, and I knew I had to make him a cupcake, but it was difficult to decide what to put on top of it.
He has a fantastic charisma about him. He was very warm and welcoming like reconnecting with an old friend. My boyfriend is a huge fan of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, and he was just happy to tag along and shake the man’s hand. The flash unfortunately bounced off of the container of the Guinness cupcake, so here’s another look at what’s inside.
I loved the world Ridley Scott created in Blade Runner, and all the characters in it. I did my best to recreate the silver origami unicorn using gumpaste, which all fans will remember from that pivotal scene at the end of the film. I’m so happy all the celebrities were game for participating in Celebrities with Cupcakes, and I hope readers enjoy the fun as well.
