Waiting for Mr. Right
series of cakes, unique
alabaster, silicone, acrylic paint and candles

Destroyed wedding cakes are based on images Wagenknecht sourced from Pinterest. The series represent a fantasy of the web, where images are compiled and perfected in order to convey ideal versions of ourselves. When the cakes are actually made, their fail under their own weights or are flipped and warped by Wagenknecht to highlight the failure of translating online fantasies into reality. No single cake is ever recreated, each is unique.
