Surrealism Cake: New York Magazine Weddings 2012

Sunday, April 8, 2012

New York Magazine - Weddings, has an awesome museum worthy cake collection in their current issue!  Each cake is based off of an art movement in history such as Realism, Impressionism, Abstract, Pop art, Cubism, Modernism etc.  I chose Surrealism as my movement.  As you can see, under the fondant layer of this cake you would imagine fluffy layers of cake and buttercream, but instead there is a peek through a curtain that exposes a hard, cold brick wall with a window that opens up to goldfish swimming in the blue sky.  Haha, that is as surreal as my literal mind could come up with :)!
