Dive Deep Inside a Seven Thousand Square Foot Cake at LA’s Break Bread

Have your cake and eat inside it too? That’s what Break Bread LA, a six-room installation of cake sculptures, is hoping to achieve for 30 days starting this past weekend at Think Tank Gallery. The immersive art experience will include performance, visual art, and pop-up dinners within the frosted walls put on by Scott Hove and Keith Magruder (aka Baker’s Son). Seven thousand square feet will be dedicated to the sugary experience, made even sweeter by an ice cream truck selling watercolors that match the bright pinks, blues, and peaches found within its surroundings.

Hove’s Cakeland installation is not all frosting and cherries however. To add detail, and a bit of darkness to the works, Hove adds unexpected elements within his sculptural confections. “To contrast that bougie cake look, I collect items that have an inherent violence, but beauty at the same time,” said Hove. “That’s why I choose things like switchblades, wolf jaws, and leopard jaws. Even though they are plastic, they possess a real fierce quality that affects us on a very deep level.”

Exploring his installation during the day is free, but performances at night will be ticketed and need reservations. Events include dinner clubs, pop-up brunches, improv, poetry readings, and other food-themed activities from deep inside a frosting-lined mega-cake. You can learn more about the pop-up and how to get tickets on Break Bread LA’s website here. (via LAist)
