Remember a few weeks ago when an election was happening and a really sad cake was delivered to Trump Tower? Sure, you do.
That cake has been forever burned in our memories as #TrumpCake, the internet sensation that took the Donald Trump’s unmistakable visage and turned it into a frosted Rorschach test. Even before anyone had a chance to slice it, Twitter had a field day with it. Was it happy? Was it sad? Did it look like actor Rutger Hauer? Did somebody say cake?
Now, The New York Daily News caught up with the 24-year-old artist behind this inedible mixture of sugar and tape. In this short profile with artist and baker Melissa Alt, the Daily News divulges the artist’s history and process. We also get a peak behind the cake she made for Hillary, which isn’t as scary as the Trump one, but what is?
