Colourfully textured frosted cakes look like shag carpet

In the social media era, it feels as if new baking trends appear each month; with hundreds of up-and-coming bakers hawking their visual masterpieces on Instagram, it takes something unique to stand out.

Enter Los Angeles-based baker Alana Jones-Mann. She creates special cakes that double as delightful works of edible art. However, in addition to her conventional cake-decorating themes like flowers and festive holidays, Alana has also found inspiration in an unlikely source: shag carpet.

With a background in event planning and a passion for design, Alana’s shag carpet cakes feature colourful, abstract designs and textured surfaces. Each of her retro shag carpet cake are covered in buttercream frosting and capture the spirit of the ’70s staple.

Alana is able to evoke the psychedelic patterns through a meticulous piping technique. In addition to her shag carpet cake designs, Alana also bakes goodies inspired by other elements of interior design. Some of those include decorative hangings, nostalgic wallpaper, black-and-white tiles, and stylish terrariums.
