"Green Frosting" Green Abstract with Thick Impasto Like Pastry Frosting

1995 - 2000

About

"Green Frosting" is a luscious smear of green swirls and circles giving hint to Puhlman's future direction of becoming a Pastry Chef cake designer extraordinaire. This piece was painted during Cory's final year at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Cory is a cake decorator, artist, and designer working out of Los Angeles, California. Growing up in Southern California, she dreamt of being an artist and took advantage of every opportunity to learn about art techniques and history. She moved to Paris as a teenager and there found her second love in the Culinary Arts. The art of cake decorating connects our senses in new and meaningful ways. Playing with our food is one of the first forms of creative expression, creating bridges between our senses, as we attempt to master our surroundings. As adults, cake decorating encourages mindfulness. Through practice, like a calligrapher, you learn to master the sweet sticky medium. By taking the time to consider how to create beauty, we feed both our inner and outer selves. It requires breath and concentration and a healthy dose of humor. Here we can literally eat our mistakes! Her formal training began at Parsons School of Design in New York City, followed by an MFA in Painting from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The Cranbrook Academy of Art was designed by architect and faculty member, Eliel Saarinen who collaborated with Charles and Ray Eames on chair and furniture design. Numerous creative artists who are alumni of Cranbrook include: Harry Bertoia, Florence Knoll, Jack Lenor Larsen, Donald Lipski, Duane Hanson, Nick Cave, Hani Rashid, George Nelson, Urban Jupena (Nationally recognized fiber artist), and Artis Lane (the first African-American artist to have her sculpture, "Sojourner Truth," commissioned for the Emancipation Hall in the Capital Visitor Center in Washington DC.) Cory Puhlman continued her education in the culinary field at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Scottsdale. Upon returning to California, she worked at Rosebud Cakes in Beverly Hills where she developed and honed her cake decorating skills. In 2012 she started her own cake and chocolate company, Bohnhoff & Kent. She has appeared in multiple televised Food Network competition shows, including Halloween Wars, SugarDome, Cake Wars, and Cake Wars Champs. Her cake designs have appeared in InStyle, The Knot, and Art & Cake Magazine. Cory’s first client, Lady Gaga, began sending cakes as gifts to hundreds of friends, collaborators and fellow artists.
