Food Artist Transforms Cakes Into Classic Art Masterpieces

Rebecca OConnell

Creative food artist Maria A. Aristidou likes to use unconventional materials in her artwork. Best known for her work with coffee, she is back—this time, with cake. The desserts sport brightly colored frosting painted to resemble famous works of art. Aristidou creates these edible masterpieces for the patisserie Vienna Boutique—Cake Gallery in Larnaka, Cyprus. The bakery uses a special chocolate recipe covered in sugar paste that is then painted with edible paints. Each work takes about six to 10 hours to create. So far, Aristidou has cake-ified classics like Starry Night, The Scream, and The Persistence of Memory

This is obviously not the first quirky homage to van Gogh's beloved masterpiece: You can enjoy Starry Night in domino form, painted onto an eggshell, or even in Oreo cream filling
