Every once in a while, something catches our fancy and the fascination does not usually last. But now and then, very, very seldom, what captures our imagination keeps on getting better and never fails to surprise us with something fantastic each time it crosses our paths.
In the case of fancy or art cakes, I was never much of a fan. However, when Kensei Yonzon started posting pictures of The Bunny Baker‘s creations on Facebook, I couldn’t help but be in awe. Kensei’s wife Aila, is the main cake artist – he helps her run The Bunny Baker and they’re Quezon City-based (bordering San Juan). Their cakes are so cute because of the attention they put into the details. You should see the cartoon character cake toppers. You’d think they jumped out of the TV. But their cakes are not just cute! They can also produce realistic-looking toppers such as wine bottles, cheese, olives and of course, my most beloved comic characters, Asterix & Obelix! Seems like art for art’s sake and it happens to be edible.
Full disclosure (in the light of the current food blog controversy): no payment in any form was received to write this post. Though I went to school with Kensei (we were sometime blockmates in college), that has no bearing on my writing this blog entry.
