Eggs, flour and sugar – Oh my!!! (NSFW?)

Filed under: humor, pictures and videos, Strange — Tags: , , , — skeptisys @ 8:56 am

I love cake – not in the traditional yummy way, but as an artistic medium.  They are colorful edible sand sculptures – beautiful yet temporary, a testimony to how fulfilling and fleeting is our life.  We spend all our time creating something beautiful and emotionally powerful, just to have someone come along and devour it.

Occasionally the shape of the cake and the frosting blobs will look like something familiar – maybe a pony or more often Walter Cronkite.   What you see in the cake reflects your personality, like in clouds or Rorschach inkblot.   What you see in the cake depends on your own mind – if you see something kind and happy, you are a pleasant happy person.  If you see impending death in a cake, you need either a therapist or a blank canvas.  If you think you may have a disturbed mind that sees gross things everywhere (even in flour and water), stop reading now.  This post is about extreme cakes.

After I saw a cake that looked like kitty litter, I had to search to see how far dessert chefs will go to shock.  Pretty far, it turns out. Here, for your own amusement, are some photos of cakes in which I saw something.  Remember, these are all just flour, eggs, sugar, and other standard cake items.  If you see something disturbing, it is only because you have an evil depraved anti-God mind.

This first one looks like American icon, Porky Pig smiling – if you look closely enough (anyway, that is what I see.  What do you see?)

I hope Disney doesn’t sue over this cake that looks a little like Mickey Mouse.

Looking around I see many cakes that look like Richard Nixon, our beloved President who illegally invaded Cambodia to put Pol Pot back in charge.

This is cool, a cake made to look like rats eating a dead arm.  This one may be intentional.

Eat the rats eating the arm, and the arm

Now this cake is really gross, I think they use apples, which I do not like in my cake.  Only click on the thumbnail if you have a very strong stomach and are over age 85!  Seriously, don’t do it, I beg of you.

Baby cake!  This is perfect for a party for people on a diet – nobody dares eat the first slice!

Only kids will eat this next cake.  Well, kids and dogs.

Here is a cake of some political figure.  I love romantic wedding cakes.

Occasionally women will share a dessert, like a cupcake, to reduce calories.  Wanting a photo of this to show my point, I did a search for ’2 girls, 1 cup cake’.  Boy was I surprised!

The combination of med students and Halloween can produce quite a treat, as seen here with a thoracic cavity cake and obligatory brain cake.

Can’t wait?  Yep, dessert is coming!

can't wait until the cake is out of the box to eat it

However, the most questionable cake I could find – the one I couldn’t imagine the reason to create (even after it was explained) is the Chinese Lotus (bound) foot cake.  Apparently this was created for a podiatrist.

Well, that’s it for now.  I hope curbed your appetite for cake, and quenched your appetite for art.  Get cooking!

  1. These cakes are works of art and tools for self-expression.
    I was wondering if you have a cake recipe. My Boss’s Birthday is coming up :o)

  2. Thanks, Nikki. I do NOT recommend any of these cakes for your boss, even if you want to become a legend in the office.
    Boss Day is coming up (Oct 16), so I recommend taking the time to find out if your boss has any allergies or food dislikes and if they have a particular interest (pray it is Frisbee, record playing, or something else round shaped) then practice. Any practice cakes can be used for good graces with neighbors, friends, cops, or local motorcycle gangs.

  3. I am really looking for the recipe for the thorax cake. It would be perfect for a halloween food contest I am participating in. Anyone have it?

  4. Brianna, this link has a pretty good outline over 3 pages, if not a complete recipe.

    Good luck! I hope you will take pics.
    This pic also looks good for ideas
