A Ukrainian pastry chef by the name of Dinara Kasko is making waves ‒ both figuratively and literally ‒ with a new cake baking technique that combines traditional confectioner craftsmanship with mathematical algorithms and 3D printing. A collaborative undertaking that’s original from start to finish, Kasko works together with artists, engineers, and other pastry chefs to make her elaborate, geometric creations.
3D printed molds form the basis of these one-of-a-kind pastries, produced via state-of-the-art modeling software that simulates the interaction of objects in space. Variables such as shapes, material properties, gravity, and of course, flavour all come into play in Kasko’s painstaking baking process, which has been featured on magazine covers, design websites, and baking competitions around the world.
The result is an exquisite slice of artistry that’s almost too good to eat. Of course, “almost” is the operative word here, as Kasko always includes the crème de la crème of gourmet ingredients, in true pastry chef fashion.
