When we were asked to be the official UK media partners for Nike’s Air Max Day, we instantly started wracking our brains for how to best celebrate through the content and one thing became very clear very quickly… we need a cake!
This is not a pair of Nike Air Max 1 OG Red’s, this is actually a cake commissioned by The Daily Street and made by award winning food artist, cake and sugar sculpture Michelle Wibowo. If you have a spare moment I’d strongly recommend checking out some of the work she has done in the past over on her website. To say it is awe inspiring would be an understatement, as you can probably tell from this replica pair of Air Max 1 OG’s made from chocolate sponge, vanilla cream and icing.
Above you’ll find a time lapse video if Michelle hard at work creating our edible pair of Nike sneakers, set to the soundtrack of the 1987 Nike Air Max TV advert we published earlier today.
There’s little else to be said about this food masterpiece. It’s the combination of 2 of our favourite things at The Daily Street – Air Max 1’s and cake and it tasted incredible and will never be forgotten. Happy birthday Nike Air Max! Who knows, maybe we’ll make this an annual affair…
