Within my artistic practice I produce grand themed cakes by sculpting sugar paste, icing and fondant to create impressive edible structures. However, my delicious indulgent creations depict unappetising subject matter such as insects, skin, puss and hair. The contrast in material and subject changes our preconceived ideas of a traditional decorative cake. Our society is full of indulgence and over-consumption and my work forces us to address the negative aspects of our gluttony.
