Russian-born Pastry Chef Maria Troitskaya of “Marie Oiseau Pâtisserie” makes architecturally inspired cakes and baked goods that are simply stunning. In addition, much to the delight of this Art History enthusiast, she also hand-paints Easter Eggs in the likenesses of well-known artworks by instrumental painters throughout history each year and has done so for almost a decade. What an Easter treat for us all!

60 Hand-Painted Fine Art Easter Eggs

The Fine Art Easter Eggs by Architectural Cake Artist Marie Troitskaia were a delight for me to find. The kind of project I always say I will get to someday has, thankfully, been completed by someone else. Going by @marie_oiseau on Social Media, Marie works as a pastry architect in France, Russia and abroad, giving master classes all around the world, creating dessert lists for restaurants and pastry shops and coming up with new techniques and recipes.
