This home baker from Vancouver – Canada, shares on her Instagram, photos of her amazing culinary masterpieces. And recently, Grace has shared pictures of an incredible Koi pond mousse cake she baked for Father’s Day, and the amount of detail will blow your mind.
Her baked cakes look like a piece of art rather, something you would like to serve to your guests. Everything that we see is completely edible, except, the cattail stems that are made of dried bamboo.
The baker says that Grace stayed up until 5 am while baking this cake and the result was clearly worth the sleepless night.
Grace says that she had this project on her to-do list for quite a while but has always been too intimidated to start. Finally, she decided to take the plunge and she’s very glad she did.
To create all the little details, she uses sweet bean paste and agar-based jello, and she says it was her first time using the paste and she spent 40 minutes peeling the kidney beans just to make the tiny waterlily leaves.
“I love making small and intricate things, and I had so so much fun working on the lilies and koi,” writes the baker on her Instagram post.
This Koi cake has four layers, which are: agar almond jelly, blueberry mousse, white chocolate mousse, and black sesame chiffon cake.
