Stage 1: Denial
Stage 2: Anger
A birthday cake made for Bobby Tolk’s 6th birthday. We see Judy’s feelings of anger over the loss of Reilly. The cake screams “Why me?! It’s not fair!” Butterscotch frosting with chocolate fudge cake.
A cake done for the Kivowitzes' 33rd wedding anniversary. Here, Judy blames Reilly for leaving her, and acts out by “guilting” the dead hamster. The heart was made of strawberry, buttercream, and misplaced rage.
It’s essential to remain detached and nonjudgmental when dealing with a person experiencing anger from grief. The filling was moist and delicious.
