(Newser) – An artist who turned heads (and inspired a violent assault) by immersing a crucifix in urine has just made an interesting purchase: a cake from President Trump's 2005 wedding to Melania, the Washington Post reports. Andres Serrano, 68, bought the chocolate truffle cake for $1,880 at a Boston auction on Feb. 7, per the Art. It was one of many edible substitutes for a huge $50,000 cake that wedding guests could only gawk at. But Serrano—who photographed Trump in the early 2000s for his America series and refused to badmouth him after he became president—isn't revealing his intentions. "Artists work in mysterious ways," says the native New Yorker. "You never know what they're up to!" (Neo-Nazis attacked one of his exhibits with crowbars and axes.)
