Paint your cake and eat it too

Say Cheesecake
8" x 6"
Oil with a palette knife on canvas

I bought this cute little cheesecake at Finale (a wonderful bakery down the street from our office) so I could paint it during painting class. I have to admit, I thought painting this would be a "piece of cake" but it was soooo tricky. The fork especially, was difficult to make look realistic with just the palette knife.

The best thing was, we were able to enjoy eating it after class with our chicken nachos and beer. And it was creamy delish.

Formidable travail... Effectivement il n'a pas du être simple que de peindre au couteau la fourchette ainsi que toutes ces rondeurs...
je vous félicite, cela mérite bien la dégustation.

Chicken nachos and cheesecake? Beer and cheesecake? Dreamy Delish? Ooookkkkkkkaaaayyyyy Ann...LOLOL

Still, I think you did a beautiful job with this. The fork is perfect, the plate exquisitely so. Not a big fan of cheesecake but I have to admit that this one looks might delicious indeed!

No one can fault a food painting. And having partaken of that cheesecake, your painting does it's creamy yummy-ness justice!!
