Lauren Wodnicki Creates Beautiful Buttercream Cakes That Resemble Embroidery And Macramé
By day, 42-year-old Lauren Wodnicki works as a full-time healthcare worker in Connecticut. But in her free time, typically at night, the mum-of-two creates beautiful buttercream cakes. Edible art is now the trend in the pastry industry with more and more pastry chefs making desserts that look like works of art. Using the cake base as their canvas, they use colorful frostings to create intricate patterns and make edible sculptures that look too pretty to eat.
Get ready to drool yet again over these beautiful buttercream cakes by Wodnicki. Popularly known on social media as Lauran Loves Cake, she captivates her online fans and followers with gorgeous-looking confections that look like embroidery and macramé. Her style might remind you of the works of Alana, another talented baker known for her textured cakes that look like shaggy rugs. While Wodnicki admits that she’s not the first to feature ‘fiber art’ on a cake, the self-taught baker takes pride in her own unique style.
Beautiful Buttercream Cakes That Look Like Woven Tapestries and Macrame
Using nothing but buttercream icing and a piping bag, she decorates the eight-inch round cake with thousands of stitches and knots to mimic woven tapestry by hand. She completes her baked masterpieces by adding beads and floral elements for the finishing touches. At first glance, her stunning woven cakes could be mistaken for delicate, vibrant tapestries and decorative macramé. But a closer look (or perhaps cutting a slice) should confirm that they are indeed cakes.
Wodnicki started diving into food art eight years ago when she decided to make her own wedding cake to save some money. Just by watching online tutorials, she learned how to make cakes and perfected it just in time for her wedding. She was able to make a four-tier chocolate cake that looks fairly simple but tasted delicious. And there was turning back for her since then.
After learning the basics, she was determined to learn how to make decorative cakes. She started making artistic creations inspired by flowers and plants. And when she discovered fiber art, she began dedicated her craft in making woven cakes.
