Flødeboller, as all good Danish dessert cooks know, are chocolate covered soft meringues covered in marzipan and chocolate. They’ve been a feature of Scandinavian desserts for some time. Now, the Danish-born, London based designer Kia Utzon-Frank is introducing flødeboller to an architecturally minded London audience, via her company KUFcakes.

Utzon-Frank has created a series of Brutalist-inspired flødeboller, inspired by the British capital’s Barbican Centre. Her Brutalist bonbons have both white and dark chocolate cases, as well as other ingredients such as charcoal.

Utzon-Frank is both a designer and goldsmith, though she has found success recently with her cookery, creating cakes for such clients as Harry Styles and Sir Terence Conran.

These brutalist flødeboller aren’t available to buy; she tells us they will be available for delivery in London from this April. Until then you can sign up for a workshop and make your own with the designer.
