Artists' immersive cake castle is a sugary installation with a dark twist

Artists' immersive cake castle is a sugary installation with a dark twist

Welcome to Candyland. Or “the frosted ghetto,” as artists Scott Hove and Baker's Son call it.

The duo built a 7,000-square-foot cake castle and candied urban block party called “Break Bread,” which opens Saturday in downtown L.A.’s Think Tank Gallery. The six-room cake maze -- made from delicious-looking spackle and house paint topped with real candy – resembles ornately decorated, pillowy white cake with sugar cream frosting. Chandeliers made of shimmering hard candies and gumdrops dangle from the ceiling. Circus mirrors embedded in cake give the illusion that the sugary oasis stretches on for infinity.
