It’s just a cake!
Anyone who knows me well, and any regular readers of my ramblings here on this or any of our sister sites, can tell you, Horror and food are two of my favorite things, and of the latter, I adore baked goods in particular. I’ve got a monster sweet tooth from hell, which is a sad irony, since I’m a diabetic. Still I crave ‘em and, every once in a while, I have to let the inner monster out. Vampires and werewolves have to have blood, sometimes, and I must have my cakes and pies. The curse cannot be resisted.
Would you have a hard time slicing into any of these cakes, depicted in the linked-to article below? The culinary creations of Katherine Dey are beautifully rendered works of art, even if they are sometimes disgusting. A roadkill possum cake. A pile of entrails. A scary-real decapitated head. How about the dead infant? My personal favorites are the bloody heart (pictured above) and the sucking tick cake. Could you grab a fork and dig into one of these horrific treats? No? More for me, then. No matter what they look like, these are still cakes, after all. Pass me a glass of low-carb almond milk and stand back! These works may be too pretty to eat, but that wouldn’t stop me! I’d take some pictures first, then make quick work of the lot. Even the dead baby.
