Spring Confections.

Please  don't eat the Cakes!

I went to a local bakery to sketch these cakes. There they were, looking statuesque, displayed in a chilled case with perfectly combed frosting, unnatural colors and piped flowers.  

Cakes of course are meant to be eaten; whether during ceremonial occasions, or adding a pleasant sweetness to an ordinary gathering. Yet, it was hard to imagine actually eating these cakes.  After a while, to my eye they became purely decorative objects; timeless, iconic and nostalgic, and great subject matter because not only are they beautiful, they stay perfectly still!
