Krishanthi Armitt works a certain kind of magic with cakes. It’s a distinctive, eye catching and ultimately beautiful magic, where intricacy and grandeur operate in seamless harmony. Inspired to bake by watching her mother make tasty cakes for her family, Krishanthi uses the traditional techniques of Austrian and German bakers, renowned for their brilliance in the world of cake making, which she absorbed from her years studying at university in Germany.
It’s Krishanthi’s skill with sugar work that gives her cakes the Midas touch, her range of delicately crafted floral motifs, which look unnervingly real, are a symbol of culinary perfection. Krishanthi really began to understand sugar craft when she became a mother. Her cakes emphasise the grand style of cake design, they take the classical form, but Krishanthi adds her eclectic influences, to make fashion cakes that epitomise individuality.
It’s hard to define Krishanthi’s style, it’s something which has many facets. In a recent interview, when asked about her style, she said “My style is elegant, but it has to be unique and maybe even a little bit quirky. Fashion and architecture plays a big role when I’m looking for inspiration”
Ultimately, all Krishanthi’s designs are fashioned out of love and an astute understanding of aesthetics. Her designs achieve that all important air of wonder and amazement, a treat for both the eye and the taste buds.
