What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Buttercream Beauties



Atelier Soo

Today’s post is in honor of the birthday of one of the best bakers I know. Happy birthday, Dr. Baby Sister!

One of the things that really thrills me about my blog is that it gives me the opportunity to profile artists who can create beautiful things I’ve never seen before. Atelier Soo is just such an artist. The Seoul-based pastry chef creates amazing cakes adorned with realistic-looking bouquets of flowers made only of buttercream and edible paints. She then takes really stunning, lush-looking, artfully-styled photos of her creations. I’m impressed with the whole process!

And if you find yourself passing through Cheungdam, Seoul, with some time to kill, you can study her methods in one of the baker’s cake decorating classes. You can check out this talented food artist’s work on her website and on Instagram.

  2. These are insane! I am not totally sure I understand the motivation or rationale behind investing so much time and energy into sculpting something so magnificent only for it to be sliced and gobbled up but I appreciate that someone does so.

  4. Having watched my mom make wedding cakes and having tried my hand at this craft as well, I testify that making flowers out of buttercream frosting is NOT easy! There’s an amazing amount of powdered sugar that is needed to stiffen the frosting enough to hold shape. I’m reminded of what I saw people in the Philippines do with such flowers; they would remove them from the cake, arrange them in a canning jar and keep them as a decoration in their home. (There, these confections are nearly rock hard in order to hold up in the humidity and are attached to toothpicks to secure them to the cake.) Thanks for bringing back memories!
