Freedom has Never Tasted so Good is a satirical representation of the dark history of the United States.
The cake represents all of the terror that gets sugar-coated within our country. As I got older I began to wonder why things such as genocide, massacre, continuous mistreatment of people of color, and other reoccurring issues were missing from our history books.
I made this concept visual by destroying a pre-made cake in all of its entirety and reconstructed it into a newly formed patriotic cake that later gets covered up by white icing. Even after the damage is done, subtle remnants of the event stay visible as the cake is transformed.
