alison dunlop (aka a.r.d bakery)

I don’t have an “art you can eat” category on the site, but clearly I need one! This is the stunning work of North London based artist/baker, Alison Dunlop, aka A.R.D Bakery… a “fashion designer turned baker”. How, why, what? Here  you go:

“Originally graduating from the Sculpture degree at Glasgow School of Art, I then moved into fashion accessories, studying at London College of Fashion Cordwainers then completing an MA in fashion accessories at the prestigious Royal College of Art. I spent 10 years working in the industry, designing bags, shoes and jewellery for many high end brands. 

I come from a family of home bakers, famed at the local fetes and bake sales, but hadn’t considered it as a career until maternity leave sparked in interest in experimenting how to put together classic baking with a design led high end fashion aesthetic. Further experimentation in chocolate work led incorporating bold, graphic patterns, strong colours and a fun playful look.”

And yes, I included that final photo as cold hard proof… well, moist delicious proof. Happy Friday.
