    PHILADELPHIA, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- For many Philadelphians, a day
 without Tastykakes is a day not worth remembering.  From Butterscotch Krimpets
 to Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes, the popular snack cakes are a staple in
 freezers, refrigerators and counter-tops in households all across the region,
 and the United States as well.

     Now, they can be enjoyed without even taking a bite at the first
 "Tastykake Art Exhibition" which will be held from April 25th to June 10th at
 Rittenhouse Fine Art, 1723 Spruce Street in Philadelphia.
     Noted still life painter Jan Elmy, who recently received "Best of Show" at
 the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Annual Exhibition, uses her classic realism
 style to depict Tasty Baking Company's signature snack cakes including the
 Butterscotch Krimpets, Chocolate Cupcakes and Kandy Kakes, among others.
     Elmy studied at Baltimore's Schuler School of Fine Art and with German
 artist Eugene Kamelak.  Whether she's painting a pear or a cupcake, Elmy uses
 the same level of technical skill to bring her subjects to life.
     The exhibition opening reception will take place on Wednesday, April 25,
 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Rittenhouse Fine Art.  Guests will receive free
 Tastykakes and have their photo taken with the artist as well as Tastykake
 mascot, "Kirbee the Krimpet."
