Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too, at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
Museum to host first-ever local cake bake-off inspired by contemporary art exhibition
OKLAHOMA CITY — The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is excited to announce its first-ever cake decorating contest featuring local pastry chefs on April 28, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Museum’s galleries.
The magnificent cakes, inspired by the thick, impasto-style works of art in Do You See What I See? Painted Conversations by Theodore Waddell will each resemble a different modern painting from the new exhibition. Guests can enjoy coffee and cake and are encouraged to vote for their favorite cake. The creation that “takes the cake” will be announced at 2:00 p.m.
“We invite you to bring your family, friends, and colleagues to explore this delicious and exciting event,” said Chief Public Experience Officer Inez Wolins. “The key ingredient can be summed up in one word — fun!”
Eleven artistic cakes will be displayed, and chefs from Raspberries and Crème, Rosebeary’s Bakery, Seasoned from Above, Platte College, and other local bakeries will compete for the people’s choice award. The program is free to view with Museum admission plus $5 per ticket at the door to vote and enjoy coffee with cake. Free admission and $5 at the door for Museum members.
Do You See What I See? Painted Conversations by Theodore Waddell redirects the visitor’s attention to the importance of what they do not see rather than what they do see on the canvas, and the opportunity to perceive something different in the same painting each time it is viewed. On display through May 13, 2018. Related photos here.
