This little treat is not officially a part of the festival, so don’t look for it your Festival Passport. The big question, did this taste as good as it looked?
First of all, we love the Jackson Pollock inspired decoration and presentation. This stark white plate is splattered with food coloring, as is the white-iced mini cake.
The detailed decorations are fun as well with a painter’s palette and paint brush both made with peanut butter flavored fondant. The paint brush’s handle is a pretzel stick. It was a nice (and yummy) change to enjoy some flavor in the fondant decorations instead of the usual plain sugar taste you usually get with fondant.
Inside, the mini cake is made with a yellow cake, not that you can tell, since it is colored with a multitude of food colors! And all that white frosting — it isn’t vanilla — it is peanut butter flavored buttercream frosting!
Did we like this? Peanut butter flavor, buttercream, moist cake, and so fun to look at and photograph. We LOVE this mini-cake. We had it for breakfast…and are considering having it for dinner tonight as well!
This is a super-fun and delicious cake that we hope sticks around throughout the entire run of the festival. Let us know if you spot this colorful, paint-splattered, peanut buttery mini-cake on your visit to the Festival of the Arts!
