Food Art – Mike McCarey

Mike McCarey is a God among pastry chefs for his innovative abilities to recreate any object from cake. His showpieces are sculpted, airbrushed and generally perfect replicas of what they’re meant to represent. In 1993, he opened his own shop “Mike’s Amazing Cakes” in Washington state and he’s been shaping sugar, butter, batter and chocolate ever since.  His cake art has several guidelines which he follows religiously: the object/concept presented should be as accurate (realistic) or as animated as possible and should have a unique perspective. His cakes have won him numerous awards and have landed him features in numerous publications (Wall Street Journal, In Style Magazine, Brides Magazine) and television shows (Entertainment Tonight, Food Network cake challenges).
