My inspiration on making this Gravity Defying cake was the lanterns that people make to celebrate Vesak. I love the fragile movement of the lanterns rising the sky and wanted to reflect it on my cake. I changed the usual red, orange and yellow colors for blues as to create even more connection to the sky. The whole cake speaks about connections and the spiral of live, nor end, nor beginning …The women (Mother Nature) on the wafer paper turning into sky creating a white sheet to paint our vital circle… Birth, childhood , adolescence, adulthood , old age and death…I choose a round cake to create even more a never ending sequence of live.
Hope you enjoy watching it! :-)
42 amazing cake designers from 17 countries around the world have come together to celebrate the Festival of Vesak. Each artist has created a cake to honor the triple anniversary of Lord Buddha – his birth, his attaining Enlightenment and his passing away into Nirvana.
We hope this cake collaboration will help bring enlightenment around the world!
