Pastry making is one of the most popular and celebrated forms of art globally. I am sure that many people will disagree with me about considering pastry making a form of art, but for me anything that needs creativity and passion and requires a high amount of precission is a form of art. Only pastry making has one disadvantage. It can’t be put in a museum and viewed by thousands of people, because its creations have to be consumed in a certain time gap. Naturally, when I saw this artist’s porcelain desserts I was very excited to see how a dessert can become a decorative element and an exhibit.
