This is a good time of the year for sweets, so here are some sweets for your eyes. Bilibin painted this Tsar’s cake.
For a lighter confection, perhaps a trip to Vienna is in order. A friend gave me a book about Demel, the famous bakery there.
It also includes these drawings (and many more).
The Demel book inspired me when I was working on Apple Cake. The Demel drawings also reminded me of some confections by other artists. This character is by Anita Lobel.
From the Danish artist Bjorn Wiinblad:
And from Andy Warhol:
I hope that you have a December full of pastries, mit schlag. You can start with a slice of this cake from Alois Carigiet.
