French fancies


French magazine Architecture Interieure CrÚe has discovered the joys of patisserie. A section at the back of the current issue is devoted to kitchens, starting with a feature on Charlotte Perriand, and includes brightly coloured cakes in various photographs for no obvious reason. It turns out they have been designed by well-known architects and designers, including a prettypretty ring iced with violets by Tord Boontje, and a chocolate sphere studded with almonds by Massimiliano Fuksas - which looks as if it might explode at any moment. If it did it could be entered for the Stirling Prize.
