To create the planet and moon shapes, Baraty uses a pancake to create a globe shape, along with a glass of bourbon, coconut milk, water, soy sauce and food coloring. His shots of foggy nebula are created by blending water, coffee, half & half, and food coloring. And those dreamy star constellations? They’re made from a simple mix of sugar and baking powder.
Food art has never looked so good.
