The Baking Dead is a collaboration consisting of 40+ 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 DV 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.
The reveal of this collaboration will coincide with the Season Five Finale of The Walking Dead, schedule to air on Sunday, March 29th, 2015 on AMC.
