A bad taste cake

from w
I blinked a bit when I saw a photo of this cake in a story from Saturday's Age Extra - a group of Melbourne artists who focus on making food, entered this in the Royal Melbourne Show but it was disqualified (because the board was too big). Miss Havesham's cake of course from the Dicken's novel, one of the most famous cakes in history. Here the mice are probably made from icing sugar. Of course to exhibit this in the show competition would really have taken the mickey out of the whole contest! So do you think it is a 'great' cake idea? Or is it too subversive?

Wonderful cake. It should have been allowed in the competition.

Yes Annie, I thought it was a wonderful idea to think of Miss Haversham's cake. Of course I also think that wedding cakes with all that fancy icing are silly when they are to be eaten. When we were married (in the 60s which might explain a lot) a double tier plainly iced cake was decorated with real frangipani flowers. Very sweet!
