African Mask Cupcakes

This weekend I checked out 1:54, the Contemporary African Art fair at Somerset House in London with my mum.

It was MORE than amazing. I was overwhelmed with the amount of amazing art, crammed into one space. The excitement, the pleasant autumn morning, the good company, the beautiful setting of Somerset House and the art made for one of the best days of the year.

That night I came home & got to creating some of my own pieces of African inspired sugar art out of fondant and chocolate. I was like the Mad Professor - completely obsessed! :)

Africa, Beautiful yet unappreciated
Africa, Sahara to the Atlantic
Africa, From Zulu Land to Yoruba Land
Africa, From Nile River to River Niger
Africa, Rain and Sunshine round the year, 
Africa, With her greenery lustre
Africa, With Coolness, Calmness, a Serenity unequal
Africa, Your hospitality and warmth taken for granted
Africa, Raped and left desolate, yet richly blessed
Africa, Your Children scattered all over the World crying for you
Africa, You are simply mine Africa. ~ Segun Rasaki

Peace & Love
