If you're not going to be in or near downtown Los Angeles between now and March 13, you might want to rethink your itinerary in order to check out Break Bread, an ambitious art installation and event space that promises to be the apotheosis of cake fantasies.
Held inside Think Tank Gallery, Break Bread features 7,500 square feet of labyrinthine artificial cakes created by Scott Hove, a San Francisco born artist living in LA who has collaborated with the acclaimed incognito London artist Banksy, according to LAist. Hove's ongoing Cakeland series utilizes materials like fake fruit, switchblades, stilettos, Swarovski crystals, and taxidermy animal teeth as flair for these fierce dessert sculptures. He uses a real pastry bag to pipe on fluffy (though fake) frosting, which could put him on a path to be one of the world's most intricate cake decorators were he to ever try his hand at the real thing.
Highlights from an ambitious schedule of special, ticketed events inside this unreal cake universe include a pop-up dinner cooked by DJ/chef Them Jeans (February 26) and and a soul-powered "RNBrunch," so named because "even Boyz II Men loved breakfast" (March 12).
Watch Hove get into the sweet details of his process with this feature from Think Tank Gallery, and check out the installation for free with reservations. Warning: Real cake may not be good enough after experiencing this.
