This lovely Black Cat Cake was made by Tissi Benvegna of La Torta che Vuoi Tu. Tissi made this cake for Cake Con International. Cake Con international is a collaboration featuring amazing worldwide artists who have created cakes and sugar art inspired by TV series, comics & video game characters.
Here is Tissi wonderful explanation of why she chose Black Cat as the subject for her cake:
Black Cat is a particular woman. She was raped by her boyfriend Ryan. Hating the idea of being a victim, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics, intent on killing her rapist. Finally, after months of preparing, she set out for revenge, but before she could find him, Ryan was killed in a drunk driving accident. Furious that she was denied the chance for revenge, Hardy decided to utilize her new skills to follow in her father's footsteps. After amassing a fortune in stolen items, Felicia adopted her costumed identity. She meets Spider-Man. Despite her antipathy towards men, Felicia feels a kinship with this lone hero; Spider-Man is the first man she felt she could trust and she grows to believe herself in love with him. I think she is a strong but vulnerable woman. I like her strength and her determination despite what she experienced, her desire to love again. Products used Laped Italia & TruColor LLC.
