Russian Artist Uses Cake as Her Canvas

Whoever said pastry chefs were just bakers, was wrong. Russian native, Elena Gnut is a 31 year old pastry chef who makes extremely detailed, unbelieveable cakes of precision and realism. She shares her incredible work with the world via her Instagram account which currently has more than 163k followers.

Amazing Cakes 

Gnut’s imagination and creativity is endless. Each cake is a different piece of art, with a unique style and theme. Her artwork or pastries always remain authentic and original, although she does take inspiration from film characters or cartoons. They always end up seeming more real than life!  Not only are they pretty cakes but they are cool cakes. Cake decorator jobs like Gnut's don't have easy. She is a true artist at heart, as she also has cakes that are actually painted on by hand, that are so delicately put together, they are almost untouchable. So much so, it would be ashame to eat it although it looks delicious. No one wants to destroy her beautiful work!! 

Artistic Cakes 

Realism seems to be Elena Gnut's main talent, when she brings to life one of her culinary creations. For example, she made an end cake in the shape of a barrel or cask of wine with grapes placed on top and as you can imagine, the illusion is justified. As you can see, Elena Gnut is a culinary perfectionist that puts soul into each of her cakes as a extraordinary piece of art.
