Art Imitates Life Imitates Art...Especially when it come to Cake Decorating!


"At first, art imitates life. Then life will imitate art.Then life will find its very existence from the arts."~Fyodor
With the explosion of talented cake artists on today's scene, no other quote could be more accurate.
The following is the first installment in a series called "Art Imitates Life".
I will be pairing photographic art with cake art to showcase the incredible artistic abilities of different cake decorators around the world.
The photography is this article is courtesy of my dear friend, Morgan Jackson, a talented artist in her own right, who is able to find the extraordinary within her camera lens from the most ordinary things around us.
Her Scarborough Faire collection was captured at a local Renaissance faire, where admittedly, the distinct and dramatic personalities and scenery are far from ordinary.
I truly enjoyed gathering the following cake artist's exceptional creations to compliment the photography; and I hope you enjoy them too.

May the saint protect ye-
An' sorrow neglect ye,
An' bad luck to the one
That doesn't respect ye
t' all that belong to ye,
An long life t' yer honor-
That's the end of my song t' ye!
