This cake recreates the famous Ouchi illusion, where a central disk of black-and-white rectangles appears to float and shift above the checkered background. The illusion was created by Japanese artist Hajime Ouchi and the effect is intensified as you move your eyes over the pattern.
We created the effect using 530 individual pieces of black-and-white fondant and with meticulous precision.
