South African Artist Creates Fantastic Life-Sized Cake Sculptures

When considering larger than life cakes with more than a little bit of character and movement, then one needs look no further than the extraordinary talents of South Africa-based Dorothy Klerck of Eat Cake Party.

At her home, less than an hour outside of Cape Town, the art graduate and long-time lover of design used to fill her time with a handmade card-making business, while helping out husband Tobie in with his agricultural business. It wasn’t until she started making birthday cakes for her own children that Dot discovered she had a bit of a talent for cake artistry.

Now known the world over for for her life-size conservation-inspired animal builds and awe-inspiring, gravity defying sculpted cakes, Dot’s work never fails to amaze and inspire.
