By On Jul 12, 2018 Cakes Ideas
Coming into baking with a BFA in art (she focused on painting), Sideserf was able to start ambitiously—attempting a cake in the shape of a cow skull, for instance. I had no idea what I was doing with cake, but just like in college, I was experimenting with different materials and seeing what I could do, she said.
Sideserf certainly not the only one who came to cakes with a different creative skillset. Wedding cake master Ron Ben-Israel went to art school and previously had a career as a dancer; Karen Portaleo was a ceramicist and had her own prop and set design company, before she learned to bake cakes. And there a wave of pastry chefs working today who entered the field after pursuing architecture.
Sideserf does her fair share of preparatory research, gathering source material and video to try to get a sense of the dimensionality of her subjects, in order to best render them in the round. She said she looking to the work of artists more than her fellow bakers and cake designers for inspiration, citing hyperrealist sculptors like Ron Mueck and Evan Penny.
