Painted Art Cake
3 tiered hand painted cake with some pressure piping. Inspired by and/or based on 3 beautiful glass paintings by the amazing Massimo Cruciani (from Assisi, Italy), including his homages to Miro and Kandinsky. Topper is based on a Murano glass "Picasso Head" sculpture by "Badieli Artist" (from Venice). Repeated royal icing pressure piping, hand painting and never-ending layers of sugar glaze.
Another cake following an amazing class with Kelvin Chua. Various types of piping and hand painting
