Mini Monet Cupcakes are inspired by the French Impressionist artist Claude Monet, and his haystacks series from 1890. Each painting was different, because the movement of sunlight on the Haystacks changed their colour at different times of the day. In May 2010, Sheryl Fong created a small pointed cupcake. Her partner, an ex-art teacher, noticed that it resembled Claude Monet’s Haystacks. It was from that moment that the Mini Monet Cupcake was born.
