Amazing Cakes by Pastry Chef Ksenia Penkina

Vancouver-based pastry chef, Ksenia Penkina, creates cakes that are mesmerizing works of art. Penkina not only creates breathtakingly beautiful mirror cakes, she also offers entry-level and advanced classes in Cake 101.

Penkina is making gorgeous toppings, icings and cake dressings with some bright, uncommon colors and textures. Famous for having the most popular Mirror Glazed Cakes in Social Media. She travels around the world to teach Master Classes to those who wish to create magic themselves! Also having Online Classes diligently developed for beginners, she has dramatically grown her, already extensive student network, worldwide.

Penkina experiments with the shapes and size of her base. Sometimes she uses donuts and sometimes it’s heart-shaped mousse. A crucial element to these designs seems to be the way Penkina pours the glazing onto the cakes and the innovative ways she spreads them over these surfaces. Sometimes she uses a knife, while at other times it’s a blow dryer.

With every new creation, the queen of glazing brings the art of baking pastries closer to art that engages the eyes.

ANSWER to the question from a previous post 📌 It was so much joy for me to see your participation and thank you all ❤️To clarify, I was talking about most common comments around ALL social pages: instagram, facebook and many more third party pages. Each pages has its specific comments and discussions. One of the most popular comments is about wastage of the leftover glaze. There are paragraphs of discussions, people fighting, people crying, people trying to blindly judge, cursing on one another 😂 while discussing how wasteful glazing is 😬 oh well, let me clarify it here, in a tiny post, at least someone will read and have a peaceful sleep tonight 😆 Something you could not have noticed before, every time the glazing is done, you will see a clear plastic wrap on the table. As soon as the cake is glazed, you simply roll up the plastic with excess glaze and squeeze back to the cup until the last drop. Simple and so easy. Blend again and glaze another cake (or store for future glazing). No wasting please☝🏻 🥇One of the first who guessed it right was @adrbelt (instagram) and Armi Jakola (facebook). Many more had the same guess, good job to everyone ❤️
