Recently, I’ve created a bunch of so called „Concrete Cakes“. They are getting more and more popular, and many of those who desired to surprise or impressed their loved ones with a sweet treat, chose to do it with this kind of option – the concrete cake.
My friend asked me: „Why? What’s so special about them? They’re just GREY CAKES.“ She couldn’t be more mistaken! This kind of cake is not only beautiful in it simplicity, but also chic, unique and distinctively elegant.
In the world confectionery, we’ve already had rustic cakes, naked cakes, botanical cakes, etc. Now it’s time for CONCRETE! This collection is inspired by natural, raw elements and icing that replicates cement. Its texture shouldn’t be too smooth, and any kinds of imperfections, such as little wholes or folds, are higly desired. Also, the greyness of such cakes cannot be absolutely flat, all types of white spots or blurs and fades are needed.
As far as top decoration of a concrete cake is concerned, it can be anything that is bare and cold. Glass, for instance. Obviously, not the real one. I produce it, using isomalt – a sugar substitute. You can create amazing shapes and futuristic forms, which look stunning in combination with the rawness of a concrete cake.
Clearly, not everybody is an enthusiast of modern art confectionery. And that is why, I always suggest adding some fruit or flowers to he final look. Anyway, these cakes can delight every person who has a sense of art or creativity.
