Recently I started a little mosaic project, covering a small glass table with leftover glass pieces from projects I worked on a couple years ago. I really enjoy making mosaics, putting small pieces together to create a bigger picture, paying attention to the spaces in between and the direction of each piece. Without setting a timer I could spend hours cutting and glueing glass, it’s so relaxing!
It’s about time I bring my mosaic passion into baking and it felt natural to start from the shapes I used in my very first mosaic 4 years ago, a butterfly.
The glazing used in the cake sets quickly which does not leave much time in positioning the pieces but that’s the fun and not being symmetric gives it an artistic touch. 🙂
Did not quite go to small details with this one, but tried using same sized pieces and kept pieces used in wings all triangular shaped though not identical.
