Large scale Lenin cake created by artist Yuri Shabelnikov in the late 1990s.
From a CNN report:
A raised knife plunges into the chest of Vladimir Lenin moves upward through his neck and into his cheek. Sound gory? Actually, it was a piece of cake.
That is, a cake made to look like Lenin, the Russian revolutionary who died in 1924.
His embalmed body lies in a Moscow museum. As for the cake, it's long gone -- gobbled up by hungry Russians before you could say "Bolshevik."
A team of chefs cooked up the multi-layered Communist-inspired creation, which measured more than 2 meters (6 feet) long and weighed over 50 kilograms (110 pounds).
