Yummy! Talented Teresa stuns internet in international comp with her incredible cake designs
A talented baker has gained international recognition after taking second place in an online cake design contest.
Teresa Sarat from Dąbrowa Tarnowska clocked up a whopping 1.8k likes from cake fans for her ultra-realistic Sweet Orchid creation in the World's Super Incredible Cake Artist competition.
The delighted 41-year-old mother-of-two who now lives in Illinois in the United States said: “Making this cake was my big dream. It was a gift for my sister-in-law who loved orchids and I wanted to give her double pleasure.
“The result of the competition is great satisfaction for me, the more that so many people supported me with their votes.”
A major labour of love, the orchid’s petals took three days to make, while the stems and main body of the cake in the shape of a pot with chocolate for mud took around seven hours.
The self-taught baker said: I do not have a gastronomic education, so when I started making cakes, I had to learn everything myself.
“First, I look at the picture, catch the details, then I make a sketch, and only then I start to act so as not to waste any products or time.
"I always bake a cake that I would like to get myself."
“The most popular flavours are raspberry and blueberry, walnut and chocolate. I never cut corners when I bake.
“I use good quality ingredients and treat every cake as my ‘baby’, meaning that it should be the best possible inside and out.
“That is why I love giving them a photo shoot afterwards.”
The orchid cake is just one of Sarat’s stunning creations. The PA to a film producer also has created cars, TV characters, designer handbags and baskets of produce.
