Meet Maria A. Aristidou, a painter who began to make waves when she started painting using nothing but brewed coffee instead of paint! Since then, Maria has moved on from coffee to using edible paint to create some of the world’s most famous masterpieces on cake!

To right now see what we mean, check out Maria’s Art On Cakes project, a collaborative project by Maria and Vienna Boutique (a charming artisan cake, chocolate, and confection store in Larnaca, the third-largest city in Cyprus, after Nicosia and Limassol).

Speaking of edible paints and Cyprus, you might like to check out some painterly images of Cyprus here. (Link to Cyprus gallery, if you wish to)

Apart from edible paint, the arty cakes are made using the shop’s famous chocolate recipe and covered in fondant, which provides the smooth “canvas” for Maria to create her beauties.

If that has whetted your appetite for more from Maria, dig into a Van Gogh, Munch, Dali, and Picasso by Maria below. And keep an eye out on her Instagram account for a Frida Kahlo, an O’Keeffe, and many more.
