Back in January I was very humbled to be asked by the gorgeous and talented Shawna McGreevy to join an incredible group of decorators to contribute to a very special edition of Sweet Magazine – The Art Issue.
Each decorator got to choose an artist that inspired them and create a cake based on their work.
I chose Escher…I’m the least mathematical person I know so I thought this would be stepping way out of my comfort zone…and I wasn’t wrong!
I actually ended up submitting 2 cakes…my original design included my version of Escher’s incredible ‘Rind’ effect…unfortunately in my impatience to meet the deadline, I dried it too quickly and found half of it in the bottom of the oven the next morning :(
So what you see here was thrown together at the last minute. I sculpted the hand from fondant and left it sitting upside down on a ball while I set up the photo tent!
Thank you so much for an incredible honour and amazing opportunity Shawna and thank you everyone for making such a daunting project so much fun! xxxx
