The Walking Dead

Carol Peletier Inspires You To Never Give Up!

The Walking Dead Cake

Yesterday, I featured a gorgeous Walking Dead edible sculpture featuring Carol Peletier Sculpture

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

you just

CHANGE    

 

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.

I really like how this contrasts with Carol Peletier

Lori Grimes Standing At Her Grave

Welcome back to more of The Baking Dead. The Baking Dead is a collaboration consisting of over 50 cake and sugar artists celebrating the hit AMC series The Walking Dead and helping to spread the word about Domestic Violence Prevention and Awareness.  You can find The Baking Dead on the web, Facebook, and Twitter.

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. The Baking Dead 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.  One really cool thing that has come out of this is that The National Center on Domestic & Sexual Violence has been promoting The Baking Dead on Facebook and Twitter and contacted Renay Presley Zamora who heads up The Baking Dead.  Many in The Baking Dead 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.

The Baking Dead contribution that I’m featuring this time is called Lori Standing at her Grave.  It was made by Carolina Lara.  This is one of my favorite pieces made for The Baking Dead.  This is one of two companion pieces made by Carolina Lara. Check back tomorrow and you’ll find Lori Grimes

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.

 

Lori Grimes' Wedding Dress

Here is a photograph of Lori in her wedding dress from the TV show.

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 made another amazing sculpture which goes with this one.  I’ll showcase it tomorrow.

Walking Dead Sugar Sculpture

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.

 

Walking Dead Sugar Sculpture

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.
