Well-kept Secrets: the Meaning of Cakes

“Some people when they see cheese, chocolate or cake they don’t think of calories.” Amit Kalantri

I indeed bake a lot. Me and my loved ones eat a lot of bakes. All sort of bakes…Baking, to me, is not an easily explained activity. Its notion originates from deep roots within, touching social, emotional and personal surfaces of what I call my life. Cakes, however, are the royal group of all baked goods.

Some people might do, but I never ‘just’ bake a cake. Cakes are special. Cakes have histories and stories. Cakes denote goods because they are bread, and in the internal sense bread denotes the good of love. But the bread of cakes is distinguished from common bread in the fact that by the bread of cakes is signified the good of love toward the neighbor, thus spiritual good.

My cakes do not follow recipes. I create cakes. I construct cake flavours with the owners in mind. I don’t just bake cakes. I plan cakes. I dream cakes. I draw cakes. I  sculpture cakes.

I aim for my cakes to have souls, to sing songs through their flavour, therefore, each of my cakes is somewhat unique and somehow not repeatable. Hence the reason why I don’t normally share their recipes, but make them immortal only by images…
