The Husband Catcher Cake, oil on canvas, 10"x10".  Sold.

There appears to be a bit of a romance going on in this painting.  I'll leave it up to the viewer to imagine the details.  I think I've mentioned in previous posts about the 'Husband Catcher Cake' lore in my family.  My grandmother had a cake called the 'Vienna Torte' that seemed to appeal to many of her daughters' suitors and soon became known as the 'Husband Catcher'.  My mother made it a couple times for my suitors and like magic the husband was soon caught.  Maybe there is something to it?

  1. I have a couple of daughters that are looking for a husband… Umm, may I have the recipe for this magical “Husband Catcher”? Let’s see what we can catch…. 🙂

  2. We are doing a blog about you and your etsy store. My twin and I have both bought prints from you and just LOVE your work. Stop by and check it out.

  3. It just hit me today that although I check you blog weekly (for at least the last year!), I don’t think I’ve ever left a comment! Opps, sorry! I really just love you work, but especially all the ones with cakes! I’m a baker and hope to at least one day have a couple of your prints in my kitchen. For now, I just admire them on the computer.

    • It’s a great compliment to have a baker enjoy my work- I guess I must be doing something right with my cake paintings!
