Cakeland


Resembling a pink-frosted, sugary fairyland of lipsmacking cakes that are wall-mounted, hanging or standing, Cakeland is an art installation created by Californian artist Scott Hove. Alas, the cakes are not edible as they are made from acrylic media, paint, wood, and cardboard.




Scrolling down, you'd notice some of the cakes have fangs.



Hove says "Being such a place of beauty, Cakeland requires that it be equipped with its own defense, because the reality of beauty and perfection is that people want to possess it. So for their own protection, the sculptures and installations have evolved strategically placed sharp teeth and horns. Without this aggressive aspect-- call it the anti-cake-- the beauty is vulnerable, transitory, and not to be respected."
