Iven Kawi‘s cakes are extraordinarily ornate, to the point where they can serve more as showpieces than edible items.
The Jakarta-based pastry chef first attempted baking in December 2013, when she made Christmas cookies for her daughter. Four years on, Kawi runs a bakery shop out of her house in Lippo Karawaci.
Cleverly named, “Iven Oven,” the bakery produces Kawi’s signature elaborately ornate baked items, adorned with sculpted buttercream frosting. Check out some of her cakes below and find more of her work on Instagram.
