Stella is a biannual magazine from Copenhagen Denmark. The illustrator was  commissioned to create an illustration of a ‘very dark chocolate cake’  for the recipe page. In keeping with the theme, the illustrator wanted to create  something dark but fun with gothic undertones .It was an open  brief – a picture of the cake and the recipe.The illustrator chose to use the colour and shape of the original cake slice, but added the doily tablecloth, black backing and embellished plate to contrast with the chocolate browns. The pink of the fork was used to add a sense of playfulness to the piece.
