Please don’t eat these shoes! Creating works that are very similar to the art of contemporary sculptor Scott Hove, designer Chris Campbell has expertly painted and sculpturally enhanced dozens of pairs of Jimmy Choux shoes so that they appear to be decorated with the accoutrements of a fancy bakery cake! Apart from his light up shoes line-up from last fall, these are now my favorite. Clever and beautiful, but definitely not edible!
Chris sells his visually delectible creations at his own shop, The Shoe Bakery which appears to be located in Orlando Florida, but who knows. With prices that are very reasonable at just $60 for a pair of flats to $200 for the high heels – I’d say these are not only a fashion bargain but a unique investment for art collectors as well!

Surrealist sculptor Scott Hove has become famous for his fantastic fake cakes and cake-like sculptures that he creates using carved foam and traditional cake decorating tools. Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco is currently showcasing his latest works in a highly topical exhibit entitled Guns & Ecstasy.
In addition to a fully immersive, single person Cake Installation that Hove calls “A Pentagonal Disco Infinity Chamber” — and which features multiple angled mirrors and a spinning disco ball — the exhibit includes a series of twelve confectionery assault weapon sculptures created in light of the recent shootings and gun violence in the United States.
Lisa over at Skulls and Bacon just sent me a link to this out of control Cake Shrine created by artist Scott Hove. I don’t even know what to say about it but you can check out more pictures of what is surely either a pastry chefs wet dream or worst nightmare over at High Fructose Magazine. Thanks Lisa!
