Amy Stevens/ Exuberantly Imperfect Cakes

"The Confections series began as a response to turning 30. It was a celebration of birthdays, color, pattern and obsessive absurdity. 
My original idea was to bake 30 birthday cakes for myself and photograph them. I didn’t quite make it to 30 cakes in time for my first show, but I sure got a lot of ideas from those first cakes.
I ordered a kit from Martha and watched an instructional video on decorating cakes.
When I quickly discovered my cakes were never going to look like the ones in the video and the pamphlet, I decided they were better off in their exuberantly imperfect states".

(Confections Statement, Amy Stevens)
