This cake’s design was inspired by many beautiful Pop Art concepts and works of art, including:
“Interior with Skyline” by Roy Lichtenstein
“Sunrise” by Roy Lichetenstein & “Love” (Sculpture) by Robert Indiana
Chocolate Buttercream & White Cake sit under this two tier art themed cake!
The skyline was cut from thinly rolled fondant. Each individual window was cut out and adhered to the buildings to create the skyline.
The Lichtenstein inspired sunrise on the bottom tier was done using edible markers and a stippling technique. Both Wilton and AmeriColor make edible color markers. I find that Americolor’s markers have a finer tip and a steadier flow, while Wilton’s provided the perfect bold thicker tip needed for the “dots” in this particular project.
