Let them eat Lenin or having your own Lenin and eating him or simply Petit Bourgeois Cannibalism

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).
