Cakes are often discussed with a certain architectural bent -- they have tiers and layers just like buildings -- but the Kinetic Tarts bring that discussion to a new level. The partnership between artist Jose Margulis and architect cum pastry chef Dinara Kasko consists of cake versions of Margulis' structural artworks, showing the constructive qualities of the pieces in a totally new and creative medium.
The Kinetic Tarts are made from a combination of typical cake ingredients in the base layers and thin, specially designed sheets of chocolate on top. Those chocolate pieces were cut with an industrial machine also used on architectural modelling. The silicon molds for the chocolate are made using 3D-imaging software from Autodesk called 3ds Max, another program used frequently by artists and architects when building their models.
