Textile News: Tapestry Cakes

 

These extraordinary cakes have been created by cake artist Leslie Vigil. Somehow she figured out how to mimic intricate embroidery stitches and designs using the medium of icing. As someone who is challenged by the mundane task of frosting a plain cake, I am truly in awe of this woman’s talent and ingenuity. To gain a true appreciation of the exacting detail in these patterns, enlarge the photos above.

Leslie enjoys “harmonizing textile traditions from different cultures” , in this case, Mexico and Russia. For more stunning examples of her work, refer to this brief article , which contains many more photos.
