A Taste of Culture

There was once a time when cakes came in simple shapes, with simple designs.  When the baker’s only concern was to make something delicious.  Now people expect more from their desserts -which has led to a lot of food for thought in the form of cake artistry.

Amongst the most cultured of these offerings are the artwork inspired cakes.

Cake.  Art.  What’s not to like?
