Van Gogh Swirls Cake

The Van Gogh Swirls Cake was created on or around 2009-02-07.

Van Gogh Swirls Cake The Van Gogh Swirls cake is a competition cake which became the base for the "Ode To Colorado" cake.

Van Gogh Swirls Cake A competition cake means that while the cake is decorated in the same way as a normal cake would be, the part that would be cake is made of styrofoam. This is because competition cakes are intended to be on display for several days, weeks, or even months.  Real cake would degrade and not hold up for that time.

Van Gogh Swirls Cake The three tiers of the cake are covered in swirls made of royal icing.  The top tier is all white and blue while the other two add yellow and red.

The cake was designed to be reminiscent of Van Gogh's Starry Night painting.
