Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake Still Life Painting by Kevin Inman Art

Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

This cake is leaning. This is what happened.

I wanted to do cake paintings, specifically, triangular slices of cake. These are surprisingly hard to find, because a lot of the bakeries are degenerate and sell square slices of cake.

But I persevered. I went to all the supermarkets, all the bakeries. The urge was strong. Ralph’s, I discovered, sells the coveted triangular cake slices.

So I went to the store, I selected the prettiest slice of cake.

I came home, the cake kept wobbling and falling over. So I trimmed the bottom off the cake and ate it, and then it leaned like this.

Since this project started I have gained five pounds.

It’s your birthday, buy yourself some cake.
