The Wedding Cake: A Perfect Union of Fine Art & Cake Art on show at the Woodmere Art Museum
Please join us for a special show of cakes inspired by the artwork on view during the Woodmere Art Museum’s exhibition: A More Perfect Union? Race, Sex, and Power in the Art of Couples.* Co-curated by Noelle DeSantis, cake artist and owner of Ella Vanilla cake decorating supply shop in Chestnut Hill, the show will examine the connections between fine art and cake art-highlighting the elevated artistry of wedding cake design. Several wedding cakes created by leading cake artists will be on display with the artwork they were inspired by in ways such as technique, color palette, subject matter, expression or era. Today, many cake artists have a background in fine art and have studied painting, drawing and sculpting, which has made the crossover to the sugar medium relatively seamless. Many of the techniques used in fine art are quite similar, but cake artists replace paint with food coloring and clay with malleable icings, such as fondant and gum paste, to achieve their three-dimensional edible artwork.
Exhibiting cake artists include, Colette Peters of Colette’s Cakes, Jennifer Roach of Cescaphe Event Group, Rebecca Craig of Cake Life Bake Shop, Jenna Rowan and Jackie Swain of Night Kitchen Bakery, Masha Lipkovsky of Unik Cakes, Lara Kalin of Lara Lada, Danielle Zahodski of The Master Baker, Nala Holloman, Stacia Gillen and Noelle DeSantis of Ella Vanilla.
*Parents, please note that some of the fine art in the exhibition may depict nudity and adult content, and might not be suitable for children.
Reception, Gallery Talk & Cake Tasting is free and open to the public Thursday, February 16 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Woodmere Art Museum. Please see more information HERE
