The cake is all white ,the child can become a genuine picasso!! I think the kids will find it super fun! They can draw and paint the own cake and of course their friends can help. We also can have this cake on our birthday and we can turn some lovely artists in front of our friends and guests! I love people who have new ideas ! Can find more gorgeous cakes in blog sweetapolita.

Temari cake is a real sweet art!! In Japan temari balls are made by the mothers and grandmothers ,for the children play,were made with leftovers from old kimonos. Over the years their embroideries were considered a kind of art. Today who receives a temari ball as a gift,means luck and a long happy life. The artist  Maki Searle  ( MAKI’S  CAKE) , was inspired by the temari balls ,turning them into beautiful mini cakes .Can be used in wedding parties ,as gifts for the guests to take home.I really like the flavor of each mini cakes ,they are  wonderful!  The atelier of Maki’s  cake is in  SURREY .As you can see by the photos I was presented with several to taste!!!!!

These cakes are fantastic ,I felt like I was in  an exhibition of art. The store has the smell of chocolate in the air ,all cakes are made with chocolate. I love the decor of the shop! the cakes are not only beautiful on the outside ,inside are HUMMMM  delicious.  A slice of cake on the plate for testing ,is  lemon cake with white and dark  chocolate sauce with dripping red berries sauce, UNREAL!!!  I recommend that anyone living in London or around ,should go to this paradise of chocolate  is  in the heart  of   SOHO.
