This Crystal Soul Mother and Child Cake was made by Francine Tartari from IsoCakes in Jukkasjärvi, Iceland
Her inspiration was water as a source of life.
For her cake “Crystal Soul”, she choose blue ice color because it means tranquility, serenity and a child’s soul in harmony in his eternal rest, She also chose it because it is associated with the coldness, boredom and depression, in which a woman finds herself after the loss of a child- pain that often becomes eternal. She used sugar and isomalt to make the snow and ice for this cake because the water symbolizes life.
