You’ve most likely seen these classic paintings, but never quite like this.
Emily Zauzmer, a writer and production assistant for “Good Morning America,” first started baking her way through famous paintings in 2013 while taking art history classes in high school.
“I was really feeling this pent-up creative energy because I was studying all these famous painters and all their work but I wasn’t creating anything,” she said. “I got this idea to see if I could put a painting on a cake and that’s how this was born.”
To create her colorful masterpieces, Zauzmer swaps out a canvas for fluffy cake and utilizes toothpicks and Ziploc bags. Her fingers replace palette knives or brushes.
“I print out the picture and then I set up my whole station,” she explained. “I always put them in the same frame because I think it’s a very cute finishing touch.”
She also said a key to achieving a hyper-realistic result is to “use something so famous that no matter what it looks like on the cake, you’ll still know which painting it was.”
“My favorite that I’ve done is ‘The Kiss,'” she said of the Gustav Klimt piece. “I think of all my cakes it’s the most photorealistic — when I look back on it i’m very proud.”

After studying the hues in each painting, Zauzmer spends time meticulously mixing food coloring with frosting to get her icing just right.
Zauzmer said the “Mona Lisa” took the longest because she “felt a real responsibility to get it right, since it is perhaps the most famous painting of all time.”
Although she doesn’t whip them out very often, Zauzmer said the entire process can take up to a full day or even several days depending on the level of detail.
After everyone has feasted their eyes on her incredible confections, Zauzmer said she has served up the slices to friends, family and herself.
