i doubt that was the original “purpose” or “meaning.” i think somebody likes cake, but needed a justification for their art!
as a side note, that is VERY creative!
This is terrifying, but delicious looking at the same time. Great job
Really great. :)

I really like the last photo.. Looks like a velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.. So real!
what does the spaghetti like green stuff represent?
It’s a green apple flavored licorice. Last place I ever saw it was in germany as a kid.
DOnt like these at all!
Hmmmm….okay. And, just what does cake have to do with the millions and millions who got killed and maimed in WW1~? Is my takeaway lesson here: “War is yummy”? “War is good as long as it’s covered in frosting”? Or is it just some lame Tolstoy pun a la: War and Piece [of Cake]. Yep, that must be it, wars are that easy to start. I would encourage the photographer to be more topical though…Streudel faces vs Pastry faces would have been more thematically apropos.
Very creative and well done but very creepy as well.
Ok… These pictures are downright awesome, but there’s one fact that’s completely indeniable to me - I will never look at cake the same way again. (BTW, my opinion is that pic 2 is the freakiest one)
The candy stand for the sweet fake propaganda that is being used in war.
these photo’s are based on medical photo’s from the ww1. The hard reality (flesh wounds) are replaced in this project.
this also criticize the viewer that can’t handle the truth.
