More about this course

Welcome to the Class! As an illustrator many times I feel guilty not having enough cake illustrations to congratulate my friends on social media or send a hand painted card to a dear one.

Birthday card designs are also always on demand at the stationery market. 

In this class, we will be drawing and painting fun and easy cake illustrations you can use as birthday cards, recipe cards, gift tags, cookbook cover or even create a pattern for party decor collection, by painting few variations of the same kind of cake.

I hope you will enjoy this class and will have a lot of fun painting the cakes with me.

Happy painting!
