When you're at the Great GoogaMooga this weekend, exchanging chef trading cards, eating Toro's snail paella, and jamming to the Flaming Lips, look out for this mammoth of a sculpture. "Sugar artist" Margaret Braun completed the 25-foot-tall cake at 3 a.m. this morning, after working on it for months. It's made out of 1,000 hand-drawn and painted fluorescent circles and gilded with silver leaf. Yes, it glows in the dark. No, it's not edible. Someone's definitely already hard at work making a 50-foot cronut sculpture for next year. [Earlier, Earlier]
