Wayne Thiebaud Inspired Slab Cakes

$0.00

This lesson plan is designed to work with an informational lesson about Wayne Thiebaud, pop era painter of cakes, treats, and everyday objects. Thiebaud’s work uses pastel shades paired with bursts of bright colors, stark shadows, and thick layers of paint reminiscent of frosting and sugary toppings. Students will build their choice of cake, pastry, or other treat using slab building techniques to form a base and pinching and coiling techniques to decorate. Techniques learned or practiced in this lesson include slipping and scoring, pinching, coiling, modeling, trimming, and glazing.
