Pastry chef Elena Gnut creates cakes that are true works of art

If you thought that a pastry chef only baked cakes, you’d be wrong. Elena Gnut is a 31-year-old Pastry Chef from Kaliningrad, Russia, who gained over 140k Instagram followers by showcasing her original intricate cake designs.

Showcasing her true artistic talent, Elena’s cakes are extremely detailed, unbelievably precise and realistic. Her cakes look more like artistic sculptures than desserts meant to be eaten. Elena’s imagination and creativity are endless; each cake is a unique piece of art, taking inspiration from film characters or cartoons.

Cakes that are true works of art

Elena has a versatile style and creates both classical, elegant cakes as well as unique fairytale-like ones. She decorates her cakes by drawing on them or adding flowers, berries or fruits. She can mould frosting into whimsical shapes and even uses edible dyes to paint incredible scenes or portraits; all of which is done by hand.
