The culinary creations of French pastry chef Cédric Grolet are as eye-catching as they are tasty. While he is renowned for his cakes and pastries that are predominantly inspired by flowers and fruit. He has recently adopted peculiar and playful new muse: the Rubik cube cakes.
A sophisticated twist on the handheld puzzle, Grolet’s cake is a cube-shaped assortment of 27 individual pastries. As a testament to Grolet’s creativity and his experimental approach to traditional baking, the treats boast new flavor pairings like apricot and rosemary and cherry and tarragon. Additionally, the chef pâtissier had foregone the toy’s palette of primary colors and opted instead for more beautiful color schemes. Some are whimsical, some are neutral, and one is even entirely composed of cakes covered in a shimmering gold icing!
