Tasty Type

















I made these chocolate cupcakes with type cut (with as much precision as possible) out of hard icing. The type size is 180pt - perfect for cupcakes with an approximate diameter of 60mm. Can you name the typeface?

My guess is Gill Sans Display (thought the ear of the 'g' in GSD is horizontal--perhaps it's just a cupcake thing).

It is Gill Sans Bold. Yes the ear on the 'g' is horizontal but I think it may be slipping upward on the right due to a chocolate icing excess! Nice one John. I would send some cupcakes as a prize but I'm not sure how they would hold up on the journey from Australia to Japan!

Love it! Did you cut out those letterforms with a knife? Now I wanna make some for my type class!
