Wayne Thiebaud Cakes

14 Aug

This post totally shows the evolution of an idea, and how a concept can be updated and tweaked. It starts with this 1963 painting from Wayne Thiebaud’s, Cakes, where the frosting is perfection as are the choice of cakes on offer.

Then American artist Sharon Core recreated and photographed Thiebaud’s sugary sweet Pop Art paintings from the early 1960’s for her 2004 work.

Then feasting on art showed how you could do it with cupcakes as shown below. They look a bit crappy but in this instance that’s not the point! Fancy having a go then full directions here.
