Christina Tosi's Chef's Table episode was so uplifting, I felt inspired by cake in a brand new way.
Her beautiful birthday cake was one of my favorite pieces of art since high school, and a triple birthday bash (in February) was the perfect excuse to finally attempt it after all these years of gawking at the pictures.
Except I ditched the sprinkles for black sesame seeds.

All black sesame everything. With mascarpone frosting.

I don't know how two baby cakes managed to feed a swarm of people who gathered to a spacious SF courtyard for one of three birthday boys, but it happened. And Joyce (who made the pretty green Matcha cake) did not fall into the fire despite everyone's fears.
