Cake Fear: The Wedding Edition

Cake Fear

Lovecraftian Dream by CAKE Amsterdam

Getting hitched is terrifying. Loving or fearing the idea, these horror-themed cakes will take that chill off the feet and move it to the heart.

Most these cakes are or could be wedding cakes, though some could be birthday or other celebration cakes. What occasion doesn’t just scream for frighteningly beautiful dessert?

Just make sure you eat it before it eats you.

The cake to the left is likely the cuddliest ethereal creature cake in existence. This Lovecraft-inspired, tentacle extending lagoon dweller sure has its eyes on a lifetime commitment. Don’t let it down.

It no doubt takes guts to theme a big event something so often considered offensive. Nonetheless, towering horror cakes are pictured across the net. Many popular themes have emerged, including zombies, brides attack, Tim Burton movies, skulls, and spider webs.

If cuddly isn’t your thing, maybe the next treats will do the trick.

See you at the altar.

Bread Art from Bangkok Has People Contemplating …Buddhism?

Slice of life?

This masters degree holder used his formal education in fine art and practical education in baking to bring people closer to the teachings of Buddha – with bread. What looks like a horror movie inspired meat market is actually a bakery with spiritual intent.

Kittiwat Unarrom formed the bread into gruesome likenesses of mistreated human heads, limbs, and organs to remind that things are not what they seem.

Inside each of the masterfully sculpted and decorated baked treats awaited a soft and gooey center of wisdom. That appearances corrupt our senses would be obvious upon biting into one of these tasty sculptures.

Son of a baker, Kittiwat ventured into the family business in 2006, and now runs the family bakery. The factory keeps him busy, but ideas for his art still flow.

Kittiwat held exhibitions as late as 2008. He says his next exhibition will focus on something other than humans.

He is not taking orders.
