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.
