All The Rage: Ultra Fancy 'Rubik's Cube' Cakes

March 30, 2017

These are the Rubik's Cube inspired cakes created by French chef Cédric Grolet, who was rated the best pastry chef in 2016 by the Relais Desserts Association, which is a real association doing important work in the world. I wouldn't call these cakes though, they're really just 3 x 3 matrices of petit fours stacked on inedible boards (I found out the hard way *opens mouth to reveal bloody gauze*) that loosely resemble a Rubik's Cube. But what do I know? I'm not a food critic, I'm just a man who keeps a couple strips of turkey jerky tucked between his cheek and gums in case he gets hungry in the middle of the night and doesn't feel like getting out of bed for a trip to the fridge.

Keep going for a bunch more.

Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees the best cake is your birthday cake.

    is this edible? I have a pet peeve with inedible cakes, especially cakes that resemble toys I never ever wanted to play with yet may have received as a birthday gift. worst gift eva.
    ugh, inedible birthday cakes...moving on.

    It doesn't even make sense. You can't end up with the same color on the 3 faces of a corner.

  • Jenness

    They need to at least have one picture of the colors where they belong in the right places. I would so rearrange that shit so I could eat them in order. Because they taste best that way.

  • So... they are tiny nuggets of cake then?

    can't they use chocolate to make the layers, I mean, come on.
