New York-based pastry chef Alexey Ivanov has created a Van Gogh 3D cake at the request of a client. Alexey looked at the paintings of the famous Dutch painter and decided to create a vase of sunflowers from the famous Van Gogh painting series, and airbrush the vase to look like „Starry Night“, Van Gogh’s most famous painting. With airbrush, paint brush and food colours, he succeeded in creating a sugary and breathtaking work. To whet your appetite, Alexey explains not only the airbrushing process, but also the complete construction of his sugar work.
