In homage to The Grand Budapest Hotel, nominated for nine Oscars, here’s a Baker’s Dozen of Mendl’s-worthy Patisserie Art Prints
The Academy Awards takes place this Sunday so, in anticipation of the event, Home Arty Home has a baker’s dozen of art prints from Etsy that would fit well into the delicious world of The Grand Budapest Hotel.
As beautifully crafted as delicate patisserie, The Grand Budapest Hotel has the most nominations in nine categories including Best Picture. The film features a choux pastry creation called the Chocolate Courtesan which mirrors the structure of the film to a degree: three layers of choux like the three layers of story, each filmed in three different screen sizes relevant to the era.
From Nan Lawson’s and Holly Illustrates’ prints inspired by Mendl’s, the ornate Middle-European bakery that features in the film, to macaron and patisserie prints by Forest Spirit, Lucile’s Kitchen, and Art & Hue (who will colour up your patisserie art in colours of your choice), these prints are ideal for adding a touch of Ladurée glamour to your kitchen.
If you haven’t seen the film yet, it’s available for free download on Sky boxes if you have the Sky Movies package, or you can get the DVD from Amazon here.
