I have lately become obsessed with cake decorating competitions on the food network. I love watching the cake artists balance the need to please the client with the need to express their own ideas/artistry. It also reminds me of art school when they get judged at the end and hear things like "I don't understand the concept." Good times.
My current favorite cake artist (and recent winner of the last cake standing competition) is Mary from Cake Girls. (all photos copyright Cake Girls)
I love the colors and the abstract design on this one.
I adore the elegance of this one. The way the flowers pop out of the painted branches... awesome.
And really? I don't even like purses and look how cute these are. I'm having a girly moment. It's ok. I'm sure it will pass.
