Presentation is paramount when creating a eye catching dessert --- a behind the scenes glimpse into the art that is plate painting.


Muscular and artistic hands -
weaving the magic we call presentation.

I see the art,
fashioned of edible sculpture.

Your formulations
are
the
holy scripture.

you are profit of the palate,
to
your
unwavering congregation.

cutouts of cake, bases;
the pulpit
from
which
you preach
your decadent wisdom.

Dripping, oozing
thinning sauces.

Prepping, squeezing;
till heavenly visions
are realized.

Tuiles, chocolate decorations;
An offering
of snap,
of crispy symmetry;
Oh lovely visual revelations.

Is it enough to paint those lines,
to chase perfection
to gain
culinary
holy ground?

Loving this write, holy ground? WE all need to read words of this sort to seek our saneness and to have a good time doing it. I did on this one, it is amazing what you can write about when you think like this.

Delicious, Amber. Of course I'm talking about the writing.

Your essence is in every creation. One indeed finds the sacred through work. The imagery here is, well, delicious, Amber. I'm suddenly very hungry...

Love the way this one seems like a double walk into your mind and heart.
