Architect-Turned-Baker Designs Beautiful, Bold Cakes Inspired by Art and Math

Math Cakes Geometric Cakes Dinara Kasko

Following the success of her geometric treats, pastry chef Dinara Kasko continues to create artistic cakes rooted in mathematics. Using the skills she acquired while working as an architect, Kasko designs desserts that combine experimental sculpture with precise methods of construction.

Employing algorithmic tools and complex diagramming techniques, Kasko is able to design and fabricate cakes aesthetically reminiscent of 3D graphs, geometric models, and avant-garde sculptures. In order to perfect her craft and produce a diverse collection of cakes, Kasko teams up with an eclectic range of professionals, including mathematicians, scientists, and sculptors. No matter the inspiration or collaboration, however, each of Kasko's creations has one thing in common: her desire to “make something interesting and fresh.”

While the fascinating processes employed by Kasko are entirely original, the cakes themselves are composed of relatively conventional ingredients. Most feature a spongecake base and a fruit or chocolate filling. Though her math cakes may look like experimental creations, you can be sure that each one will still taste like the delightful desserts you know and love.

Architect-turned-baker Dinara Kasko creates math cakes that look like sweet, sculptural works of art.
