is a project by Brooklyn-based designer Isabella Giancarlo who uses quotes—from actual breakups—and bakes the lines into delicious pies and cakes.
The inspiration for Eat Your Heart Out came from Giancarlo’s own experience. “After a break-up last spring, seven words sat me that I couldn’t shake,” she told MetroUK. “I thought about ways to reclaim that phrase… how could I sweeten words that initially took away my appetite?” Giancarlo’s confectionary creations make these biting words palpable and encourage you to eat your emotions. “Engage with the uncomfortable, sticky feelings of a broken heart,” she offered. “Gorge in feelings that are so often dismissed as self-indulgent.”
