This older painting of a slice of cake is leaning because I cut off part of the cake and ate it.
This slice of cake kept wobbling and falling over. So I trimmed the bottom off the cake and ate it, and then it leaned like this.
I painted this one a while back. It was hard to paint this cupcake, because the entire time I wanted to eat it.
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.
