painted cakes

I love birds and I love painting on cakes.
The cake artist who inspires me the most with the way she captures birds and nature is Natasha Collins of Nevie-Pie Cakes. Natasha worked for many years as an illustrator and textile designer before combining her life-long love of baking with her art. Like Natasha, I mainly use food paste colours to paint with, however for washes, I use alcohol whereas Natasha uses boiled water. I also use pure cocoa butter to create a lustrous patina.
I painted the  robin red-breast in the snow on the traditional Christmas cakes I made in 2009.
