Art for your stomach

When you think of art, do you think of museums, workshops, street fairs or art galleries?  Probably, but don’t forget the art that can come from an unexpected place-  the kitchen.

Edible art might seem difficult for the everyday cook,   but once you’ve let your imagination run wild, you can probably find a way to take your ideas and make them into real, small pieces of art that you can nibble.

Cake decorating and cupcake making has become more popular recently in Spain, and you can find decorating tools in most supermarkets to help turn the next birthday cake  you make into your very own work of art.  You can make the base from scratch, or, if you want to start off small, you can start with decorating something store-bought.  A cookie makes a great canvas for you to paint on-  with frosting instead of acrylics.
