At Think Tank Gallery, people are going gaga for Break Bread, an art installation by artists Scott Hove and Baker's Son that includes a 7,000-square-foot cake castle bedecked with gallons of frosting and candy decorations. Check out these insane images. Can you imagine seeing all of this in person? And not taking a bite?

The edible disco ceiling ain't too shabby either.

My suggestion for the artists' next medium? New York-style pizza. Now that's a castle I would gladly pay money to see.
