dinara kasko has cooked up an algorithmically-modeled cake made of eighty-one pieces, each with their own unique shape, for a creation that highlights barry callebaut’s product ‘ruby chocolate’ at the ruby chocolate event in shanghai. one of the biggest chocolate producers in the world, callebaut invited four pastry chefs, including kasko, to shanghai to present the chocolate in a signature creation.

kasko’s design was inspired by the works of artist and paper engineering, matthew shlian. using the graphic algorithm editor ‘grasshopper,’ a mold was made by taking the traditional pyramid and carefully changing the tilt of the composition. the angled forms worked together to create an overall dynamic shape, but the chef’s creativity could also be found inside each of the cake piece. in its interior, the cake contained a mousse, ganache, and meringue of chocolate ruby. the berry confit at the center of each piece emphasized the berry flavor of the chocolate and was complimented by a biscuit below.
