Almost a year after creating Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night out of cake and ten months after turning graham crackers into Mark Rothko paintings, I was ready for another edible art history challenge. This time, I decided to make Edvard Munch’s expressionist masterpiece The Scream out of cake.
My cake took twelve hours, three tubs of icing, and oodles of love. I took the finished product all the way from my home in Pennsylvania to New York City, where I shared my digestible artwork with my fellow members of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Teen Advisory Group at our final meeting of the year.
Check out pictures of my screamin’ cake below! And to see other times I’ve had fun with The Scream, see the balloon re-creation of the painting that my siblings and I undertook, my Halloween costume, and my trip to Grounds for Sculpture.
