Let us paint the cake!


16 hours of instruction. This is a compilation of 2 Cake Painting Class Recordings. However, different cakes and techniques are discussed in each video, so I combined both classes into one extensive recording. 


You may follow along with the video and email a photo of your in-progress painted rose to, along with the second video of your finished painted rose. Teresa will get back to you with a critique.


You do not need a sweet tooth to join in on the fun here. Cake painting is one of the only times I find myself pushing up the shopping trolley beside the always abandoned (and hard to summon anyone at that) glass cake display of my local supermarket. As I eye the colorful, layered confections, my mind begins a running tally of paints and thickening mediums I will need to put on my palette for the project!


This class was inspired for several reasons. One is my enduring love of painting pastries and seeing them in art. Two, celebrating the life and work of Wayne Thiebaud, as pictured above in my selfie. Haven’t you always wanted to paint so lusciously? And three, a good student who wished to attend weekend classes, I agreed! I hope you can join me in these new adventures.


Each morning Teresa will begin with a three-hour painting demonstration, fully narrated and live. Afterward, she will offer more direct critiques and "hand on" screen instruction for students as they work on their creations. It is highly recommended that you paint from life for this one, arranging your cake and or pastry still life.


Thickening or Impasto mediums will be discussed and made in front of you with simple ingredients that Teresa will show you where to purchase. Palette knife work, paint layering, painting composition, and various whites such as lead and titanium will be discussed at length and used.
