Since it’s almost weekend, let’s talk cake!
This incredible cake (as seen above) made by MICHE for an EUCATASTROPHE added a special touch to the exhibition.
The team from MICHE noticed that I was a saddened by the idea of not having a cake at my wedding-themed exhibition (Eucatastrophe), especially since wedding cakes are a part of weddings since Ancient Rome. Even though the cake back then was more like a scone-barley cake, which were broken over the brides head during the ceremony to ensure good fortune and fertility. (for more on the history of wedding cakes see Gastronomica: the journal of critical food studies: https://online.ucpress.edu/gastronomica/article-abstract/5/2/69/46511/Wedding-Cake-A-Slice-of-History?redirectedFrom=fulltext
MICHE kindly offered to make a cake!
So I send them a video with a sneak peek/preview of the exhibition and we discussed certain possibilities, and this cake is a result of how they interpreted the work.
How incredible is the detail. They even stitched the fondant!
