Have a Piece of Cake Art
Pastry chef and artist Mike McCarey creates gorgeous cake artwork that is sure to get your mouth watering.
Since 1995 he has been designing and creating customized cakes and ensures that no two cakes are exactly alike.
Mike attended cooking school in Denver, Colorado and from there began working as a pastry chef at various hotels, restaurants and bakeries in Colorado and New York. When in Washington State, Mike decided to focus primarily on cake and thus began Mike's Amazing Cakes.
Mike's cake art is guided by two principals: "the concept being presented should be as accurate and true to life or as animated as possible and should have as unique a perspective as can be conjured up. The structural principals of architecture constantly influence Mike's work and he draws great inspiration from a wide range of illustrators such as Alphonse Mucha, Normal Rockwell or James Christensen."
He has made his unusual cakes for many celebrities, including Dustin Hoffman, Arnold Palmer, Rodney Dangerfield and Julia Childs. He has also created cakes for Microsoft, Disney, Starbucks and The Smithsonian.
I love cake, and this artist does an excellent job of replicating various scenes and objects to look like the real thing. He is definitely a master of his craft. I'd have to say that my favorite is the Broadway cake because it's so colorful and diverse. Which one do you like the best?
