Dinara Kasko’s incredible edible geometric cakes

Watch more with these video collections:

Ukrainian pastry artist Dinara Kasko creates incredible-looking edible cakes that are inspired by geometry, architecture, sculpture, and technology. For a 2017 ‘ruby chocolate’ event in Shanghai, she made an 81 piece ruby chocolate cake using the Grasshopper graphical algorithm editor and a 3D printer to create silicone cake molds. Inspired by the paper sculptures of artist Matthew Shlian, each mousse, ganache, and meringue mini-cake was a different shape.

She also created a series of ‘Geometrical kinetic tarts’ in collaboration with Miami-based artist José Margulis:

In the video below, we can see how the cake model is designed and printed to make a silicone mold for her chocolate sponge, mousse, and cherry cake:

Kasko’s 3*3*3 sphere cake is dipped in a bright red glaze after it’s released from the mold. “Inside: pistachio sponge cake, raspberry mousse with rose, raspberry cream, confit raspberry – black currant.”

September 2018 update: Inspired by the famous Miura fold, Kasko has created an airbrushed Origami cheesecake with apple, chocolate, and caramel layers.
