Ballerina Turned Pastry Chef Bakes Cakes with Incredibly Realistic Flowers Made of Sugar



Baking has transcended its roots as a practical activity into a conduit for artistic expression. And like art itself, baked creations can be done in a variety of styles. Ballerina turned pastry chef Maggie Austin takes a realistic approach when working on her multi-tiered cakes.

Their petals are the most stunning part; they have the same curls and crinkled folds that perfectly mimic the real thing.
