Artists create insanely ornate castle out of cake and frosting (PHOTOS)
Forget life-size gingerbread houses — LA's latest edible installation totally takes the cake.
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?
Among all the sweet stuff, there's some decidedly creepy imagery. The artists wanted the confections to display the dark side of decadence too. That's why they included things like stiletto heels made of cake that also sport fangs and menacing, protruding tongues.
They represent the sinister side of vanity and indulgence, and to be honest, they freak me out a whole lot. The terrifying "taxidermy" cake sculptures that line the walls scare me too.
But still, the grand cake room looks delightful — a mess of pink frosting and towering columns of piped icing and candied fruit.
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.
