If you’ve been reading my website for a while, you’ll discover I love food and drawing food even more.
I have recently developed an addiction to drawing food in a kawaii style.
I love drawing sweet things and then adding little kawaii faces to them – these make cute stickers!
It’s also motivated me to open a sticker shop – details will be out soon!
In this post, I will teach you to draw a cute slice of carrot cake.
This is what you’ll learn by the end of this post:
How to draw a slice of carrot cake step by step – Easy tutorial for beginners
Please note that I’m using Procreate and drawing this digitally. You can even use Clip Art Studio as it is a beautiful software that most digital artists use, including Manga and Anime artists.
I talk more about how I got started with digital art here.
You can use any tool you want to make this drawing because the process basically is the same. You can use color pencils, pens or crayons – it’s completely your choice!
Step 1: Draw a simple cake slice first
Let’s just start by drawing a simple cake slice first.
We’ll start by drawing a simple and plain rectangle.
You don’t even need to use a ruler or make the rectangle perfect. Just draw a rectangle. This will give your carrot cake slice a very organic look.
Next, we’ll erase two spaces on top of the rectangle like this.
Now, we need to draw the cake slice.
So, from the left side of the rectangle, draw a line raised upwards like this. You can stop drawing the line when you’ve reached the center of the rectangle.
Now, we need to finish drawing the cake slice; simply draw a curved line like this meeting the other side of the rectangle.
You’ve just learned how to draw a cake slice. You can even make this a cheesecake drawing.
But for this tutorial, we need to make this a slice of carrot cake.
So let’s move forward.
Step 2: Add details to the carrot cake slice
Now, I want to add some layers to this carrot cake slice.
So, I’m going to draw 2 L shapes – one from the top of the rectangle and the other from the bottom. Just follow the green arrows, and you’ll understand how to do this.
Take your time drawing this cake slice.
Once you’re done, you can now draw a cute carrot on top of the cake.
It’s just a simple triangle and a small squiggly line for the carrot head.
When people bake carrot cakes, they usually add little carrots to the cake made of sugar frosting.
Now, we’ve completed drawing the slice of carrot cake. You can add a small round plate underneath the carrot cake slice.
This will really complete your drawing.
You can leave it like this or go one step further and make your carrot cake a little cuter.
I like adding kawaii faces to my food drawings so I will add 2 small round eyes and a “U” shaped mouth in the center of the carrot cake slice just like this:
And now, we’ve finished outlining the carrot cake!
You can color it any which way you want or you can follow my steps below.
Step 3: Color the slice of carrot cake
I’m going to color the frosting of the carrot cake a light cream color and the cake a camel brown color.
Carrot cakes are usually semi-brown so make sure you use a light to medium brown color when coloring your carrot cake.
You can color the plate underneath the carrot cake any color you want, but for this tutorial, I will use blue because I love blue so much!
And lastly, color the carrot on top of the cake!
I will go with a bright orange and green to make the carrot cake slice pop with color!
You can add some details like blush spots under the eyes. I will also add some highlights. If you’re doing this digitally, check out this post to see how I color digital art.
And voila! We’ve learned how to draw and color a carrot cake slice!
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you and you enjoyed drawing this cute slice of carrot cake. You can even use this post as a reference of a slice of carrot cake drawing.
