cakes by maggie austin.

Sunday 18 September 2011

I am blown away by the work of American cake artist, Maggie Austin. Maggie underwent pastry training in France after a career as a ballerina. I can see how her ballet background has influenced her cakes. Hints of delicate, weightlessness paired with exquisitely detailed embellishments, reminiscent of ballet costuming. I know I'm not a food blogger, but I think these cakes fall firmly in the realm of art and design.

  1. These are incredible! i am rather fond of cake decorating myself, I actually made a few of my friends 21st cakes with fondant icing etc [my mum is a total pro and taught me the ways]. I think it comes back to the OCD tendencies with model making ha! your story you told me the other day made me laugh - I have had a very similar situation myself x
