Who doesn’t love cakes! Even I love cakes, although I can barely eat them because of my tons of allergies. However, recently I discovered that cakes truly are a pleasure to all senses, particularly vision! Long story short, it was really hard to choose but here are –in random order- some cake designers that I fell in love with for their cakes’ visuals and that you need in your life.
This designer hails from Dubai. If you ever played with a Barbie doll or ever wanted to be a mermaid, these really are the cakes your dreams were made of. They are sincerely cute, and they got a real 80s-90s feel to them. Baby Palm Cakes are a pastel rainbow utopia come true. Please, someone hire this creator to design doll cakes as collector items!
This is a baking project by siblings Claire and Tony, and let’s face it, I have a soft spot for sibling projects. I also have a soft spot for tiny cute animals within pentacles. If you do too, you will understand why the oracle bakery designers are really something to obsess over. This California based bakery sculpts the sweetest twisted fairytale cartoon little scenes you will see ever!
Very sweet, very classy, very classic, with incredible taste combos –that you can probably and unfortunately not taste unless you live in Cape Town, where this girl gang project is located. These cakes are quite romantic. Especially the way flowers, seeds, and leaves are arranged on toppings really has my heart melting.
What need I say more! You people, this designer has created a pastel pink and red coffin cake! And every color of the rainbow combo cakes with strawberries on top! Layers and layers of buttercream, Brighton and Hove based but worldwide fabulous to look at, truly too cute to be real!
Rachel Chaeri is a Korean cake designer who is incredible at what she is doing. And that is designing vintage style cakes and desserts in pale pastel tones. If that sounds simple, trust me it is not! Because when you see these creations, you will know it is Studio Ghibli meets Maplestory. Or is it Valerie’s Week of Wonders.
Celine Rousseau does not label herself a cake designer. For her, it is more about the philosophy behind the cake, the art of living that goes with it. It is apparent in her mind-blowing yet minimal and elegant decorations, which could be the epitome of cottagecore aesthetics. What is best is she also shares the recipes to these beauties on her website.
Becca Rea-Holloway, the amazing human being behind these very sweet feminist cakes, bakes in Austin, TX. Beautiful as her cakes may be, the most visually pleasing aspect about them are the phrases on them. She uses her genius work to protest abortion ban or period stigma and often also runs fundraisers for different causes, so her cakes really have a lot to say!
