Here at SE we've been known to mindlessly scarf down a hamburger or two, but that doesn't mean that we don't think that food can be a form of art. One look at the beautiful work of our own cake and sandwich recipe developer-food stylist Maria Del Mar Sacasa is all you need to understand what we're talking about.

She teamed up with cinematographer Kate Kelley and director John Lavall to create this video of the making of a Sacher Torte— it's as beautifully orchestrated as a ballet, but much more delicious!
