The making of the Mondrian Cake, Caitlin Freeman's incredibly inspired cake based on Piet Mondrian's painting. This cake and recipe can be seen on the cover of Modern Art Desserts, published by Ten Speed Press, April 2013. In the video, produced by Clay McLachlan, we see how the Mondrian Cake's are cut up and put back together! A claypix video.
This is the fifth chocolate cake recipe I have shared on Chasing Delicious. Somehow this is only the first time I am sharing a bare-bones, grandma-use-to-make-this, classic chocolate cake, a staple in any kitchen hosting a celebration. Not only did I turn twenty-six this past week but Chasing Delicious turned two and Rambunctious House (the company I'm starting with my longtime best friend, Alicia) was born, as we officially began operations, on May first. I am now sharing my birthday with this blog and my company, so a crumb-licking celebration was in order to mark the occasion. Cue the chocolate cake.
This is a result from an Open VDB pipeline inside Houdini for meshing multiple interacting fluids without loosing sharp details when collisions are present between them.
A custom Mantra surface shader was use to fetch the emitters id as a mask (point clouds), to control different surface characteristics of the whole mesh.
Finally the bubbles are created by filtering the main FLIP sim; Then I had to transform the resulting points relative to the surface field when the scale of each bubble is edited to prevent an escape from the mesh.
