I’m working with someone who creates beautiful cakes at the moment and it’s really got me thinking about food as art. From Latte Art Championships for Baristas to the delightful culinary artworks of Ida Frosk (she’s amazing!) – food is an art medium all of its own.
Here are some fabulous cakes I snapped at a recent visit to the trade show Hotelympia (terrible photography as usual from me)…
Pretty amazing aren’t they?! And to think, I’m usually just happy if I dish I’ve created turns out vaguely looking like it does in the recipe picture! That doesn’t happen all that often. However, all the inspirational food art I’ve seen lately has got me thinking I just might start working on my food presentation a little more where I can. After all we do so often eat with our eyes first don’t we? I doubt I’ll be creating anything you could call a work of art any time soon though. So…if you have any special food presentation tips, do share them with me!
