MallowDrama Cupcakes & Cake Art
Over the weekend I stopped by the Ayr Hill Art Gallery in Vienna, Virginia. Ayr Hill is a fine art gallery that showcases the work of contemporary and emerging American artists. On Saturday they were exhibiting artwork on a less common canvas: Cake!
David Supley Foxworth of MallowDrama, who was one of the contestants in last month's 1st Annual DC Cupcake Contest, used his background in art to replicate famous works on a number of cakes for display at the gallery. Of course, there were also some cupcakes there to nibble on while you gazed at the art. The flavors were Black Forest topped with Cherry Buttercream, White Chiffon with Raspberries and Vanilla Buttercream Frosting, and Cinnamon Spice with Caramelized Apples.
In honor of Vienna's Oktoberfest celebration that was taking place down the street, the exhibit included edible reproductions of works by famous German and other European painters, including Vincent Van Gogh, Franz Marc, and Edvard Munch. Take a look:
MallowDrama's replica of Irises (Vincent Van Gogh)
MallowDrama's replica of Saltbox Barn (Wolf Kahn)
MallowDrama's replica of The Red Deer (Franz Marc)
MallowDrama's replica of The Scream (Edvard Munch)
