Dinara Kasko’s incredible edible geometric cakes

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.


Kasko sells some silicone molds at DinaraKasko.com with corresponding cake recipes included.
