Custom Peacock Apron



Congratulations to Lisa Chen on winning 2010's Cupcake Provocateur design your own apron contest, sponsored by Bake and Destroy! Lisa designed a very whimsical peacock apron, that was certainly original, almost like a piece of art.

I thought our readers would like to see how the real life version looks like. I had a allot of fun bringing Lisa's design to life!

I can't wait to see the entries for this years competition (happening later this year)!!
