See How This Cake Magically Change Colors, Baking The Minds Of Viewers
On 17th January 2018
Like the infamous dress that virtually tore apart the internet with arguments about whether it was black and blue or white and gold, this cake is totally mind-blowing. After being given a quick flick of the wrist, the dessert transforms from orange, yellow, and pink to blue, green, and purple hues. And everyone online is freaking out about the second coming of the color perception war.
A party is never truly a party without a cake. Whether it be a birthday bash, a wedding reception, a job promotion, or any other celebration, cakes are always the true star of the show. If you are into baking and are planning to serve a cake on an upcoming occasion, you might want to pay close attention here. B
But before you get too excited about this rainbow-filled masterpiece, let us unravel the magic a tiny bit. In her video, YouTuber CharlotteSometimes—who appears to work in the bakery at Karsch's Village Market in another video on her account—spins the sheet cake on a rotating stand and we watch as it changes color like a chameleon.
But here's where the cake differs from the dress, which seemingly changed colors in different lighting. As proven by ocular science, the color perception of the dress was based on individuals' brain functionality. In this case, it's just smart airbrushing.
In fact, the cake is all of these colors at the same time. It's been decorated with waved ridges to create small peaks that were then painted with orange, yellow, and pink food dyes on one side and then green, blue, and purple food dyes on the other side. When you look at it from the right, you see the warm color spectrum. When you glance from the left, you see the cool-color spectrum.
For those thinking of trying this out,Angela recommends,"Freshly iced cake because a cake with dry icing will not comb smoothly"
She added,"With just two colors, although I recommend complementary colors, as not all overspray can be prevented."
The Color Changing Cake has divided viewers. One group says that this is fake, and is a result of video editing, whereas the baker community is trying to explain that this is possible and that many of them have even tried this technique. Mariah P, one of the viewers, said that all this has to be fake. Another viewer named Nyphetamine Blue said that this is not fake and has been done by airbrushing the cake using different colors from opposite angles. She said that she used to make such cakes every day when she was a cake decorator.
Whatever might be the case, we are just enjoying the colorful optical illusions we are getting from this cake and we only wish that cake tastes as good as it looks.
