For Father’s Day, This Canadian Baker Made An Incredible Transparent Koi Pond Cake

Published 4 years ago

Grace, aka petrichoro, is a Vancouver, Canada-based home baker who occasionally shares photos of her amazing culinary masterpieces on her Instagram. Just recently, the woman shared pictures of an incredible Koi pond mousse cake she baked for Father’s Day, and the amount of detail will absolutely blow you away.

The cake Grace baked looks more like a piece of art rather than something you would serve to your guests but the woman assured that everything you see is completely edible – except for maybe the cattail stems that are made of dried bamboo. The baker says she stayed up until 5 am while baking it but the result was clearly worth the sleepless night.

Grace says that she had this project on her to-do list for quite a while but has always been too intimidated to start. However, she decided to finally take the plunge and says she’s very glad she did.

To create all the tiny details, Grace used sweet bean paste and agar-based jello. She says it was her first time using the paste and she spent 40 minutes peeling the kidney beans just to make the tiny waterlily leaves.

“I love making small and intricate things, and I had so so much fun working on the lilies and koi,” writes the baker on her Instagram post.‎

The Koi cake consists of four layers: agar almond jelly, blueberry mousse, white chocolate mousse, and black sesame chiffon cake.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
