Having Your Art and Eating It, Too

Got cake?

Chef and cake artist David Supley Foxworth of MallowDrama is into art in an edible way. He makes cakes his canvases.

Want a taste?

If you live in the Washington, D.C., area, head over this weekend to the Edible Art Exhibit at Ayr Hill Gallery in Vienna, Va. For two days, Friday, October 2 (11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), and Saturday, October 3 (11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.), Ayr Hill is featuring Foxworth's large "cake canvas", a hand-painted reproduction of Claude Monet's Woman with a Parasol mascarading as a chocolate-cherry confection.

Go late and go Saturday. At 4:00 p.m., at the close of the show, free slices of the promisingly delectable canvas will be cut and served.

Bon appetit!

Ayr Hill is located at 141 Church St., N.W., Vienna, Va. 22180; 703-939-3880.
