Sweet Intentions

If you're thinking these boxes are Christmas decorations or gifts then what you have in mind is totally all wrong.  These are designer cakes called "Kaleidoscope" by Louis Claparols in collaboration with Hyatt Hotel and Casino's Pastry Chef Johann Dreisger.   This guilty sweet surrender is a luscious strawberry chessecake wrapped up in a white chocolate shell while the candy colored drawings are printed in yummy sugar paper.  This distinct edible art has a unique back story.  Inspiration is drawn from the beautiful spectrum of colors in a variety of patterns and graphic prints.  Furthermore, it is a tribute to the designer's late uncle, the legendary master rapper of Philippine Music--Francis Magalona and his famous song Kaleidescope World.  The well attended event filled Hyatt's Music Room with overflowing cocktails and delicious canapes.  Beyond anyone's sweet tooth contention, the wonderful artistic creation not only complete one's good apetite but serves a meaningful intention.
