A few months ago, The Connecticut Bride magazine asked me to create a pop art cake inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s 1962 “The Kiss II”.
I had actually done another pop art cake a few years back, also inspired by Lichtenstein, and I wanted to make this one completely different. I really like the color block trend, and thought a 1960s mod design would work well with the primary colors Lichtenstein is known for. Here’s the design I came up with:
The editors liked my original design and didn’t change a thing. Here’s the cake in the Fall/Winter 2012 issue of The Connecticut Bride.
And a few shots that I took with my camera:
This was definitely a departure from my usual style (it really stands out in my consultation studio among the pastel and white display cakes) and very unconventional for a wedding cake, but I liked it just the same. (In fact, I kind of loved it.)
Thanks to Connecticut Bride for the opportunity to make such a fun cake.
