Artist Inspired Cakes
Cake artists who admire fine artist often create artist inspired cakes to render those techniques in an edible medium.

Mary Engelbreit Cake
This cake was for my aunt's 60th birthday and she's a Mary Engelbreit fan. The cake was a chocolate cake from McCall's cookbook.The top layer of the cake was 6" and the bottom layer was 10". I dirty iced it with a Betty Crocker white icing and covered it with fondant. I mixed the fondant with a peach Wilson food coloring by kneading it into white fondant. (It stains your hands but its worth it.) I made the flowers and cherries from fondant and either painted them with a Wilson food coloring or mixed in the color before I made them. To give some of the flowers and leaves a shine, I brushed some of them with an edible sparkle dust.
I used black fondant and white fondant and cut out little squares that were then attached to the cake as a border. This checked pattern is seen in most of Mary Engelbreit's drawings along with cherries.
The bottom layer was made to look like a tablecloth and I added a white "runner". Actually, everything on the cake is edible (except the candles).
I am 11 years old and my dream is to be a cake designer or chef someday. I love art - drawing, sculpting out of clay - so cake decorating is just like that for me!
