Pedro Sequera, a young pastry artist from Venezuela, has taken the world by storm with his awe-inspiring cakes inspired by pop culture. His creations feature edible superheroes, anime characters, video game props, and much more, all made by hand with highly detailed themes and references.
Sequera’s journey as a pastry artist started in 2015 when he failed to find work as a paramedic. He later moved to Mexico and had to start from scratch by selling cupcakes on the streets and offering his pastry services at various events and parties.
Things changed for the better when he made a cake inspired by the animated fantasy Coco. His creation went viral on social media and even caught the attention of movie director Adrian Molina. Since then, Sequera’s cakes gained exposure, and he has been able to make a living out of it.
In a recent interview, Sequera revealed that his cakes demand a lot of time and patience. While he can make simpler cakes in a day or two, those with more details can take up to eight days to complete. He also shared that he tries to give his clients’ requests many shapes, textures, and colors that are out of the ordinary. If necessary, he watches movies to include details that are not visible in a simple image of the requested theme.
Sequera’s journey is an inspiration to young artists who want to pursue their passion, even if it means starting from scratch. His cakes are not just desserts but also works of art that showcases his creativity, skill, and dedication.
