These Breakup Cakes Are So Funny Even Your Ex Will Crack A Smile.
Some people deal with a breakup by eating every savoury dessert around while others cannot bear to look at food. Isabella Giancarlo wanted to feel better about her split last spring and the last seven words she exchanged with her ex.
The Brooklyn designer turned to pies, cakes, and just about any sugary confection to help her through the heartbreak but not to eat them. Giancarlo’s Eat Your Heart Out photo series uses these delights to tell breakup stories.
For Giancarlo, these desserts with quotes turn out to be therapeutic. “I think the desserts serve as fleeting memorials to past relationships and function as a sweet way to process something as emotionally taxing as a break-up,” says Giancarlo.
"After a breakup last spring, seven words sat me that I couldn’t shake. I thought about ways to reclaim that phrase… how could I sweeten words that initially took away my appetite?" asks Giancarlo.
Some breakups don't end on friendly terms.
