Welcome to the latest and greatest Super Blog Team Up. This time out we are looking at Image Comics which just celebrated 30 years of publishing great creator owned comics. Today, I’m celebrating by featuring Killer Walking Dead Cakes!
This Walking Dead sugar 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.
Daryl Dixon Wacky Wobbler Cake
Funko, the king of bobble heads, makes a Walking Dead: Biker Daryl Wacky Wobbler . It features Daryl Dixon one of the most popular characters on The Walking Dead. Vanessa’s Cake Designs decided to recreate this bobble head in cake and the end results in amazing!
Ready to have your mind blown? The terrific piece of artwork you see on the stand is a cookie. This stunning Walking Dead Cookie was made by Michelle from FROSTING – Cakes & Cookies.
Michelle’s hand painted cookie features The Greene Family Farm. The farm is the main setting for Season 2 of The Walking Dead. In real life the farm is in Senoia, Georgia which is about an hour from where I live.
The most amazing thing about Michelle’s cookie? The size! It is much smaller than it looks in the first picture. I have no idea how Michelle made such an amazing detailed painting on such a tiny cookie.
Carolina Lara created this cake called Lori Standing at her Grave.
The likeness to Sarah Wayne Callies, the actress who played Lori Grimes, is wonderful.
The dress that Lori is wearing is her wedding dress. Rick sees a vision of Lori in her wedding dress at her grave site in at least two episodes – The Suicide King and Home.
The sign behind Lori reads “It’s so easy to do the wrong thing in this world. So if it feels wrong, don’t do it, if it feels easy don’t do it, don’t let the world spoil you. GOODNIGHT, LOVE.” These were the last words Lori said to her son Carl.
Carolina Lara also created this amazing cake.
The Walking Dead is about how people respond under unbelievable pressure. Carol is one of the main characters in the Walking Dead TV show. As the series has progressed, she has discovered her inner strength.
That’s why Carolina Lara included the quote:
You fight it.
You don’t give up.
and one day
The quotes comes from the episode Indifference. It is one of the last things Carol says to Lizzie.
Carol is portrayed differently in the comic and TV show. From Wikipedia: “In the comic series, Carol exhibits a neurotic, self-centered, and naive demeanor. Throughout her time in the comics, she grows increasingly unstable, to the extent of self-destruction. The television show differs in these regards, as she is shown to be a stern, pragmatic, and compassionate individual who has been gradually building inner strength.” Wikipedia has a wonderful quote by Executive Produce Scott Gimple about this. “[Carol] was strong all along. The apocalypse didn’t make her strong. The apocalypse made her show herself that she’s strong”.
The likeness of Melissa McBride, the actress who plays Carol Peletier on TV, is wonderful.
Here are more close-ups of this stunning cake:
So many great movies & TV shows feature little nods to fans called Easter eggs. Why should they have all the fun?
