Cake Art from Turkey

Imagine my surprise when I found the following email in my inbox yesterday:

My name is Ece Seval and I live in Turkey. I have a bachelor degree in Product Design but I have decided to follow my dreams of being a cake master chef and now I am designing cakes! You are wondering why I am telling you these but I would like to design cakes from paintings those inspired me. Especially the abstract ones! With this idea, i’ve just glanced at pinterest to find some abstract art pieces. Than boom! I’ve just crushed on your ‘Cotton Candy’ painting:) Amazing colors! I am sending a picture of my cake, that I got inspired from your painting.

Here is Ece’s amazing cake…cake

and here is my painting that inspired her cake.


She did such an incredible job of recreating the paint colors in the cake icing and I love that chocolate ring around it!

If you want to see more of Ece’s cake art, you can find her on Instagram here:




Leftovers and Laziness


I normally use any leftover paint I have from a project by adding it to a journal page or brushing it on paper to use later in collage.  I was working on another painting and didn’t happen to have either my journal or paper handy and was too lazy to go get it.  I noticed a canvas laying nearby so I just grabbed it and started adding leftover paint to it as I worked on the other painting.    I kept the canvas nearby and would add more paint to it each time I had extra from other projects.  Eventually, I started to like the way it was looking so I finished it up by adding some  stenciling and stamping.  I think I’ll start keeping a canvas handy all the time.  Who new being lazy could end up being a good thing.  This one is 12 x 12 inches.
