"Be a cupcake in a world full of muffins."
A little secret: Houston’s favorite type of cake is cupcake! With his birthday in October, fall becomes the season of cupcakes. One year, he received a GIANT cupcake-cake at the studio for his birthday, but most years he gets boxes of different delicious flavors. Such a dedication to cake in miniature expresses his artistic zeal: that in a world where muffins abound, the artist steps up and says, “How about cake instead?”
