We join Danish designer Kia Utzon-Frank in the kitchen as she creates her Carmody Groarke-inspired KUFcakes
The September issue of Wallpaper* (W*210) features London-based architectural practice Carmody Groarke's very first ground-up standalone residential scheme in Highgate Wood, London, as a pivotal shoot location. Adding her unique interpretation to the mix, Danish designer Kia Utzon-Frank was commissioned to create one of her eye-catching and mouth-watering sculptural cakes.
Inspired by the various surfaces of the modern London home, each cake was meticulously made using thin layers of sponge and fruit ganache, finished with a blanket of printed marzipan. ‘Cake is just another material,’ she explains. ‘I’m interested in transitions, transformation and triggering curiosity.’
