Painting on a Cake πŸ–Ό

Having not spent many days out the door, I really do dream of the times when one can go outside and wander aimlessly. The way I try to get pass this though is to use my imagination through writing and drawing. I always think that a creative mind allows endless possibilities – a new country, a forest or a cave deep under the sea? It’s so fun just to let your imagination take you there! ❀️

To be honest, I haven’t picked up a brush or a pencil to draw for years now (possibly not since I dropped Art after my GCSE lol! πŸ˜‚) But I used to really enjoy doing sketches and painting, and it was definitely a big hobby of mine growing up. (My mum and I especially had a fondness for scenery paintings back then.) So today I thought why not do a painting cake? πŸ˜‰

As you may be able to tell, I was reminiscing my time in Paris last summer when I made this. πŸ˜‚ The cake is a vanilla sponge covered with a coconut buttercream. The painting was done on edible wafer paper with food colourings. (I used a combination of water-based food colourings and a black food colouring pen to draw the outlines.) Also, kudos to my mum, who pointed out that she didn’t like the initial β€œbaldness” of the lady which is why I added hair to her after! πŸ˜‚

(Oh, and I just noticed this is my 100th blog post after I posted this! Happy milestone lol! πŸ˜‚)
