Cupcake Canvas by claremanson Cupcake Canvas by claremanson
This is my entry for the culinary arts still life contest. They asked for creative so that is what i tried to do. I really wanted to make something creative, not just food wise but in the presentation and staging too.
I also wanted to show that art doesn't have to be a painting or drawing to be interesting, art comes in all shapes and forms and i feel that the culinary arts and still life photography section gets over looked far too much. It can take just as much time and planning to create and photograph the perfect dish/photo as it does to paint for example.

On to the food. Two tiny cupcakes the size of a 2p coin filled with vanilla sponge in a silicone mold, topped with chocolate butter cream and sprinkles.
The canvas is a square homemade shortbread cookie decorated with rolled white and pink royal icing, piped with more chocolate butter cream and sprinkles. On the "table" (a box covered with a table cloth) is some left over sprinkles as creating art is a messy business, well it is for me anyway!

As always i got my idea at 3:30am this morning and baking by 6am!

...How big is a "2p coin"? Also, what is that? I feel a bit dumb and somewhat uncultured, but that's what happens when I spend too much time on the internet. xD
