This cake is by far my most well known. It’s been posted all over the internet time and again. By far the biggest site to post it has been boing boing. I received over 60,000 views on the picture over the course of 2 days.
One of the biggest misconceptions is that this is a Van Gogh/Starry Night cake, when, in fact it has more Monet than anything. This is because the 2nd photo has been the most circulated, but in the 1st photo you can see that it’s made up of Van Gogh’s Starry night, and Monet’s Hay Stacks and Water Lillies.
I was inspired to make this by a visit to Paris’ Musee D’Orsay. They have an amazing collection of impressionist and post impressionist paintings, so once I came back I couldn’t help but be inspired to re imagine the paintings in cake.
