Plaster Chocolate Cake

This cake is so rich and creamy that Raiza Costa wants to plaster the world with it.


Raiza Costa

Raiza Costa is an award-winning filmmaker and pastry chef based in Brooklyn. She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts in 2004, and then later attended the French Culinary Institute of New York, bringing together her two passions: film and food. In 2010 she created the first YouTube show dedicated to the art of patisserie called Dulce Delight, and now she hosts a Food Network digital original series called The Sweet Side of Life.

Her videos are driven by storytelling and technique. The art direction provides surroundings that mirror the beauty of the pastry. Each episode is infused with a distinctive “retro-pop” look and vibrant colors.


Finding inspiration everywhere she looks, Raiza bakes up creative (and sometimes quirky) desserts that mimic the beauty in the world around us or just make everyday life a little sweeter.
