Maria A. Aristidou is a Cypriot coffee artist, illustrator and cake designer. Inspired by pop culture, she creates imaginative coffee sketches and inventive cakes.
For her series Art on Cakes, she literally creates cakes of art! Made for a local Patisserie Vienna Boutique – Cake Gallery in Larnaka, Cyprus, she used all of her skills to paint famous images of art history.
