Stephen McCarty has been making colourful, raw, plant-based desserts since 1995 – and they’re psychedelic as heck. His inspiration? People’s auras. He decorates each cake according to what he senses of the recipient through their photo. Now, that’s a niche service. The LA-based chef’s favourite ingredients include lavender, berries and turmeric, and if you’d care to see more of his culinary handiwork, you need only head to his Instagram.
