Moscow-based bakery Kalabasa creates colorful cakes inspired by one of art’s most fundamental elements: the brushstroke. Covered in a collection of sculpted, sugary strokes, each mesmerizing dessert doubles as an edible artwork.
Kalabasa’s brushstroke cakes showcase the bakers’ interest in unconventional cake decorating. The painterly strips are crafted from chocolate and airbrushed in a range of tones. They are artistically arranged on the cakes, which are also fitting adorned with chocolate “paint” splatters, delicate airbrushing, and fresh fruit.
The bakery’s brushstroke cakes are available as single-layer sweets, tiered and towering creations, and even as cupcakes. Each treat is customized according to a particular color scheme, assuring each one is a masterpiece. Ultimately, with such a wide range of styles available, one thing is clear: much like paintings, no two cakes are alike!
