Artist Creates Incredible Alien: Covenant-Themed Cake AND PhotoshootPosted on May 10, 2017 by Jonathan Barkan
Next Friday sees the release of Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s sequel to Prometheus and semi-prequel to the 1979 sci-fi/horror classic Alien. For many, it’s a fascinating opportunity to learn more about the world of Weyland-Yutani and their seemingly desperate search for the Xenomorph. For others, it’s a way to see a different side of the world they have grown up with. For me, it’s more horror/sci-fi goodness, which is always a good thing!
To celebrate the impending release, photographer and stylist Christine H. McConnell teamed up with the Alien: Covenant crew to create some amazing themed baked goods as well as shoot them in a relevant setting. The end result is great, with the cakes (and cake pops…mmmmm, cake pops) looking fantastic and the visual aesthetic of the shoot perfectly matching Scott’s universe. You can see examples below.
Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, DemiÃ¡n Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, and Benjamin Rigby star in Alien: Covenant. Ridley Scott directed the film, which was written by John Logan and Dante Harper based on a story by Jack Paglen and Michael Green.
Alien: Covenant enters theaters on May 19th.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created, with ALIEN: COVENANT, a new chapter in his groundbreaking ALIEN franchise. The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.
