I am blown away by the work of American cake artist, Maggie Austin. Maggie underwent pastry training in France after a career as a ballerina. I can see how her ballet background has influenced her cakes. Hints of delicate, weightlessness paired with exquisitely detailed embellishments, reminiscent of ballet costuming. I know I'm not a food blogger, but I think these cakes fall firmly in the realm of art and design.
