Since I’m not a great cook I mixed 5 different images to create a dessert I had in mind; I started by the basic shapes in llustrator [1] and applying midtones to each part [2], then I created volume with the mesh tool to create soft gradients and color transitions [3]. Once I had all the volume needed [4], I used textures from pictures and traced highlights and midtones in order to generate a realistic apparience [5].

PHOTOREALISTIC VECTOR art is a very usefull resource; you can create anything you want, weather you are creating from images, imagination or both, this type of work allows you to exagerate the cualities of any object in order to make it look much better than it actually does.
