- Theobroma Cacao
an ode to love, life and small pleasures
- Theobroma Cacao cake stemmed from my new found passion for chocolate, from it's origins to the process of crafting delicious bonbons and bars. It was important to design and execute a cake which represented the anatomy of cacao, from blossom to fruit. I wanted the final piece to serve as a visually attractive focal point and educational sculpture. There were four requirements for this cake:
- two-tiered in height
- must be fondant covered
- royal icing had to be incorporated
- fundamental flower making skills must be utilized
Through the use of a natural color palette, exaggerated proportions, and simple slab-serif typography, Theobroma Cacao could be a three dimensional excerpt from Webster's Pictorial dictionary.
