Holy Modern Art, Batman!

So I was an art major in college, and am currently a graphic designer. What does this mean, you say? It means I have an appreciation for art that some don't . . . similar to the way Mr. Giraffe has an appreciation for music that I don't (and possibly never will?). Anyway, I may have hated those four semesters of art history at the time, but I have come to look up to the artists that have come before me, and hope to one day impact the world like they have.

What does this all mean? Simple. . . I like art. Also, I like weddings! And as an artist, I would want art to be part if a wedding perhaps. . . But how could I do this?! I'll tell you! It's so simple, but not simple at all. It's the cake!

As if cake wasn't an art form all ready, feast your eyes (any maybe your stomachs?) on this baby! (image source)
A little Piet Mondrian, maybe? Tasty, I know! There are no words to describe this cake! It's art and cake at the same time! (And two of my favorite things too. Coincidence? I think not.) Om nom nom nom nom.

First off, I have no idea how this cake was made. Believe it or not, all those episodes of Cake Boss haven't made me the pasty chef I thought I could be. From my novice baking skills of a birthday cake or two, I know that there must be layers to this cake? Although how they made all those layers possible without being exactly the same size or exactly right on top of each other, I have no idea. All though, using my sleuthing skills, I was able to deduce that food coloring was used. That doesn't explain the mystery though! Ahhh, I guess I just have to be impressed by it.

Love it!

Anybody else totally impressed? Don't lie, I know you are ;-).
