The Hand-Painted Cake
Updated: Oct 23, 2020
This past summer after working with my friend Tammy, @theartofcake a renowned baker, cake decorator and great mentor, I discovered that there's a lot more to cake decorating than using buttercream and fondant.
The classic, tiered cake covered in perfectly smooth sugar paste has been trendy for a while, but after working with fondant as a cover and pliable material to decorate cakes, I began to consider these perfectly smooth matte surfaces as blank slates, rather than a finished product.
Being an artist, who loves to bake, I have always been inspired by the cutting-edge cake decorators, and the latest trends they introduce. So I thought that taking my experience and ability as an artist and applying it to cake decorating, I discovered hand-painted cakes, which I think are incredibly unique and gorgeous!
Each cake is detailed entirely by hand and these colorful desserts prove that fondant is just another name for a fresh canvas.
