Artist Transforms Cake Into An Amazing Cat Zoetrope May 15 2018, 0 Comments
Food artist Alexandre Dubosc has created a stunning mix of confection and animation in a marvelous zoetrope made of cake, dedicated to all things cat. Appropriately named “Gâteau Gato“, (gâteau meaning cake in French and gato meaning cat in Spanish) the seven-tier cake is a wonderland for cake and cat lovers alike! All it takes is a light push, and the magic begins.
When spinning, this confectionary work of art features famous felines like Maneki-neko, Felix the Cat and a My Neighbor Totoro-inspired Nyan Cat. The details on the cake are astounding, and the zoetropic animation even more so. Almost every inch of the cake is covered in cats, from Maneki-neko playing the piano to a racing Nyan Cat; even the border of wafer-thin cookies feature animated fish and mice when in motion.
