The last in my series of Heartbreak/Breakup cakes (for now at least).

People often ask me what inspires me to design a cake like this. The answer is simple... personal experience and heartbreak.

This cake in particular holds a lot of meaning to me. Almost every element on it has been carefully considered and placed, and holds a special significance.

Heartbreak in my opinion is not all bitterness and sadness. It is also filled with sweet memories, longing, guilt, rage and hatred, all the emotions I tried to convey through the different things on the cake.

Some people keep journals and diaries... Me, the significant events in my life are recorded in my drawings and now, my cakes...

Closeups of the cake can be viewed HERE.

And... Specially for fans of my old graphic work... Some of you might remember THIS PIECE from way back.

And for those of you who are wondering... no, i'm not suicidal... I know better than that now

interesting idea to make a cake instead of keep a diary, i lik the idea. i tend to hav a few sketchbooks myself lying around when i feel the need to draw, one of which iv actually turned into a poetry journal instead. its sad but nice to see what ppl are using as an outlet.
