Amazing 3D Jelly Cakes with Flowers by Siew Heng Boon

Cake maker Siew Heng Boon crafts confections that don’t look edible at all. Her glass-like creations are instead akin to office paperweights with florals and fish encased beneath clear surfaces. Known as 3D jelly cakes, these confections are made with gelatin or seaweed jelly powder and use specific tools to inject colorful motifs onto a clear base. Boon’s cakes are an awe-inspiring example of when food transcends into edible works of art. She’s developed her impressive skills only within the last couple of years- she didn’t even know jelly cakes existed until two years ago. “A neighbor of my mum had made it and gave it to her. Intrigued by it, I decided to take up a course run by a very famous 3D jelly art teacher in Malaysia. After practice and posting it up on Facebook and Instagram, a few people started to order them from me.” She established her business called Jelly Alchemy upon her return to Sydney. Really amazing cakes, don’t you think? And don’t forget to check beautiful vegan cakes.

Amazing Life-Sized Wedding Dress Cake

As cake art grows increasingly creative and complex, the possibilities for wedding confections are seemingly endless. The contemporary cakes offer more than just stiff white icing. They transcend the traditional and are elevated into the realm of edible sculptures. Baker extraordinaire Emma Jayne showcases this in one of her latest creations that appeared at the Cake International show in London. At first glance, the life-size wedding dress cake doesn’t look like a confection at all; instead, it appears to be a beautiful floor-length gown. But in actuality, it’s a completely edible version of a real couture ensemble.

Cook This Page – Effortless Recipes From IKEA

IKEA’s mission on this Earth is to make everything simple and understandable, which comes in handy for those of us stumbling through life without a clue. While their furniture sometimes misses the mark, a series of recipes they’ve just released makes cooking look easier than Paint By Numbers, and we’re pretty sure we’ll never be able to follow a normal recipe again. The Canadian branch of the Swedish furniture tycoon teamed up with Toronto-based marketing company Leo Burnett to create Cook This Page , an ingenious set of illustrated recipes which they unveiled at a recent IKEA Canada kitchen event. Each one displays drawings of the ingredients needed, and the prospective chef just has to fill in the blanks. The best part? They’re all printed on parchment paper using food-safe ink, so once everything is in place, the page can be rolled up and tossed in the oven. Seriously, does it get any lower-maintenance than that? Cook This Page has yet to reach IKEA stores, but the concept is so brilliant that we suspect it might even replace the cookbook in due time! See it for yourself below, and let us know if you would attempt any of these scrumptious delights.
