Russian baker Kalabasa has won over fans on Instagram for a new cake trend. Known as brushstroke technique, these layer cakes are decorated with colorful brushstrokes made from chocolate.
The front part of the cake is adorned with brushstrokes, or “painted chocolate feathers”, and the rest of the cake features chocolate splatters and airbrushing in colors that complement the brushstrokes.
The cake is then finished with fresh fruit or flowers to complete the beautiful design.
