Anna’s Mess

This dessert has 9 elements! It was created by Australian chef Anna Polyviou, who’s quite unconventional but super pro. As you can see in the video below, the dessert is meant to be smashed on a plate before being eaten. I still can’t decide if I find it cool or way too hipster but as you may know if you’re a regular reader, I like interactive art.

Also two good news:

  1. You can get Anna’s Mess at the Shangri-la in Sydney until July 11 (which makes it pretty much an exhibition)
  2. If you’re like me, an unfortunate human being who doesn’t live anywhere near Sydney, you can do it yourself. I mean yeah the recipe requires two ovens, 39 ingredients, and 73 steps no biggie. But hey at least it’s there for adventurous spirits.

I don’t even like black forest but this cake is so perfect I had to eat an entire croissant while writing this post. For those of you who don’t know, a back forest cake (or gateau if you’re British) consist of dark chocolate cake, kirsch, cherries, and whipped cream.

This one is a creation of Kevin Ketkaew (look for him on Facebook and Instagram), who makes relatively simple desserts but adds high aesthetic value to them.

Chocolate Flowers

So I don’t know exactly who made these crazy amazing chocolate flowers; but I know that it’s someone from Savour school and that you can learn to make them (provided you live in Australia and are very rich).

I know this sounds like a promotional post but it isn’t. I found their account through instagram and what they do looks amazing. If you’re really into it they even have online classes. Anyway if you’d like to check it out here is their website.
