Here’s a look at a series of artistic cakes made especially for Design Miami 2014. The unique - and often gravity defying - confections were displayed and consumed at an event hosted at boutique hotel Casa Claridge in Miami Beach.
The event was organized by Chamber, an art gallery that opened in New York City earlier this year and commissioned six of its featured artists and studios to come up with a cake concept. Participating designers were Viktor & Rolf, Alessandro Mendini, Formafantasma, Studio Job, Martijn Van Strien and Floris Wubben.
Talented bakers Antonella Tignanelli and Laila Gohar were among the team of pastry chefs who brought the designers' cake visions to life. Each designer provided specific instructions for the desired flavor and final look. Take a look at what they came up with:
