Starry Night

Please be kind! I wanted to try painting a cake, so of course I chose a Van Gogh..Sheesh!! :) 8" and 6" cakes covered in fondant and painted with Wilton colors. Royal icing and luster dust accents. It obviously isn't an exact replica, my proportions are a bit off, but it was fun to try. Thanks for looking!

very cool....just as good as Colette's version! Looks like you had fun! I haven't yet had the nerve to do that!

Well, you obviously have a lot of artistic talent. This is great! I still want to try painting a cake, but haven't yet.

This is my favorite work of art of all time. I so which i had your talent so I could reacreate this. This is an amazing version of the painting. I hope you keep doing cakes like this. (I just showed this to my Boyfriend-who also really likes this painting and his comment. " WOW! that is definitely cool, so when are you going to make one like that?")

Thanks so much everyone for the nice comments. I almost scrapped the whole thing last night..I truly do not consider myself to be that artistic, just luck more than anything!

Thank you guys! My husband thinks people are just being nice. It was covered with fondant and painted with Wilton color that I diluted with lemon extract. I had a picture that i was working from, but really just kind of went for it. There are so many brush strokes in the painting that I knew I'd never create that look exactly. I'm glad that people can at least recognize what its supposed to be :)

Gee, nice husband. I generally don't comment- either too lazy or nothing to say. This is awesome!!!!
