This amazing Walking Dead edible sculpture was made by Anne Heap from Pink Cake Box.
For the next few days, I am going to be spotlighting a cool new cake collaboration called The Baking Dead! You can find The Baking Dead on the web, Facebook, and Twitter.
The Baking Dead is a collaboration consisting of 50+ cake & sugar artists celebrating the hit AMC series The Walking Dead and helping to spread the word about Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness.
These sugar artists come from all over the globe. Each artist chose a character or scene from the show to recreate in sugar or cake form. They were asked to incorporate the emotion and relationships that are conveyed in the show and use butter, sugar, candy and cake to make you “feel” through their piece, in much the same way that the show conveys such strong emotions.
Since the beginning of the show, the issue of domestic violence has reared it’s ugly head and continues to be an issue faced throughout the series. We decided to dedicate this collaboration to all the survivors of domestic violence and to link with as many domestic violence prevention and awareness organizations as possible, including the National Center on Domestic & Sexual Violence. Many in the group have been touched by or are survivors of domestic violence in one form or another and felt that this would be a great opportunity to get the word out.
This Walking Dead edible sculpture features a Walking Dead comic book with zombie hands reaching out from inside it. This makes it look like the zombies are escaping from within the comic. The stand which is holding the comic book off the ground is designed to look like blood. The cake stand is covered with artwork from the Walking Dead.
Here is the cover of the Walking Dead comic.
Here is the inside of the Walking Dead comic. Since the Walking Dead is a black and white comic, the artwork here is also black and white. This picture has a great view of the three zombie hands. You can see where they have touched the comic because they left blood finger prints.
This amazing Walking Dead edible sculpture is just one of 50+ items created for The Baking Dead. To see the rest, visit The Baking Dead. You can find them on the web, Facebook, and Twitter.
