EDM 169 - Draw a piece of cake

Individual Xmas cake. A5 Sketchbook ©Sue Pownall 2011

I knew I needed to go to the supermarket, but yesterday afternoon found me searching the cupboards for something to eat. Hidden behind some T-bags I found this individual xmas cake, which a friend gave me. So I took it out of its box and drew it whilst sipping my cooling tea. I then ate the icing, but not the marzipan as I don't like almonds, and drew the top picture. Finally, I took a bite and used my watercolours in the last sketch of the page.

Please excuse the quality, I do not have a scanner here and for some reason I cannot get rid of the blue cast on the paper and get the cake colours correct, it's a warmer brown.
