How to Draw a Great Looking Chocolate Cake for Kids and Beginners - Step 1

How to Draw a Chocolate Cake Step 01

1. Begin by drawing an irregular triangle using wavy, curved lines. Notice the "U" shaped line emerging from the near side, and the corner that is incomplete. The shape should resemble a slice of pizza with dripping cheese, but it is actually the top of the cake with dripping icing!

8. "Pretty please, with a cherry on top," as the old saying goes. Draw a cherry on top of the cake. Use curved lines to trace the rounded heart shape of the fruit and the dollop of icing beneath it. Extend a pair of curved lines from the top of the cherry and connect them at the top, forming the stem.

Chocolate is a favorite cake flavor. Where does chocolate come from? The peoples of South and Central America have cultivated a tree called cacao for thousands of years, the fruit or "bean" of which is used to make chocolate.

Explorers brought chocolate back to Europe during the 1500s. At first, only the rich could afford to buy chocolate for drinking or baking.

As time went by, however, prices were lowered and it became more popular. German chocolate cake, for example, is now famous around the world.
