Edible inedibles - Pastry chef from Krasnodar makes household items from cake

Russian Federation, Krasnodar

At first glance, this bottle of milk, book, cup of coffee and packet of oatmeal look normal enough - but they’ve actually been made out of cake, by 17-year-old Sandzha Osmanova from Krasnodar.

At the end of December, the Ruptly crew visited the pastry chef to learn more about her work, and watch her create a bottle of detergent from sponge and icing.

"It all started about two years ago," Sandzha explained. "I had a regular food blog on my Instagram page, I cooked regular food, not cakes, I just liked to cook. Then one day I subscribed to one girl on Instagram, she's also a pastry chef. And I saw that she was cooking such beautiful cakes, everything looked so tasty and nice, so I also wanted to try to make it."

At first she offered her cakes to friends and family, and the positive feedback inspired her to bake them to order. In October 2021, she made her first, more unusual design - a fully edible cup of coffee - to impress followers on Instagram. 

"A cake in the form of a Starbucks cup. It was an unusual cake, and I have noticed that other pastry chefs after watching my video started to make exactly the same design.To be honest, it makes me happy that people have started to repeat what is good for them," she shared.

Sandzha says her followers like to order unusual cake designs "because they are tasty, beautiful, and they [the customers] want to try something new, not the usual 'Napoleon' cake."

Although just 17 years old, she already has experience working in a bakery. She enjoys honing her skills, learning new ones, and in her spare time reads lots of books - some of which have become an inspiration for her cakes.

"The most elaborate cake? Maybe it was the book-shaped cake [Louisa May Alcott's book 'Little Women'] that I made. It took me about five hours of work. Difficult, it was hard for me, I did it on my second try," she said.

Sandzha shares her cake designs on Instagram and TikTok, and says one of her videos has had 6,000,000 views. She plans to open her own pastry shop, but not before travelling the world to find more unusual recipes and inspiration for her desserts.
