Taking the cake

While you may be unable to take home these showstopper cakes from Moscow’s Tortik Annushka patisserie, we help you do the next best thing – shop the look.

We’re so impressed with the arrestingly beautiful cakes created by the patissiers at Tortik Annushka that we consider them works of edible design. Established in 2009, the pastry shop and school prides itself on creating masterpieces that marry cutting-edge technology with the finest of ingredients. Celebrating the art of baking, the cakes bring to mind artists from some of history’s standout movements. We couldn’t help but look locally for functional art and design that’s as delectably appealing.
