Made by the husband and wife team Tiger in a Jar, this surreal and lovely video recipe for beet cake is like nothing we've ever seen before. Watch it after the jump and see if you agree.

We love the dreaminess of this video — the music, the colors, the soft focus, the weirdly beautiful details like the card catalog full of flour — and kind of want to live inside the world of this little film, baking and eating beet cake all day. Total video food porn!

If you need a little more instruction on baking a beet cake, the couple posted the recipe on their blog, along with these inspiring thoughts on the art of baking:

There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.
