I am getting my BFA in drawing and painting and did this cake as one of my projects for a drawing in conceptual spaces class. Inspired by one of Savannah, GA’s many squares, I wanted to represent layers of history of a site using layers of cake. This particular square is where the gallows once stood and where the 1st woman in GA was hung for her crimes, however, the site today looks peaceful and welcoming as one of the many places couples use to ‘tie the knot’ these days. Though the gruesome and gory history and the dead are buried beneath, life carries on. I used modeling chocolate and fondant for the tree, rice paper for the flower on top, fondant for the other 3-D elements, hand painting and airbrushing for the scenery and butter-cream for the grass.
