Gruesome Facial Injuries Created With Cake and Candy

Brought to us by Dutch photographer, Ashkan Honarvar, Faces 5 is a photo series that creates seemingly gnarly facial injuries with cake and candy. In place of blood and actual innards, icing and sprinkles are used to create imagery that’s a little easier to take — very little.

As described on the artist’s website, “This series constitutes Ashkan Honarvar’s search for an identity and the physical and psychological wounds inflicted on soldiers by war… Ashkan Honarvar used existing pictures of young First World War soldiers with facial mutilations.”

Now, who wants cake?

Deep Fried Breakfast Cereal

Good morning, sunshine. Are you in the mood for some cereal? Or, maybe you need some fat in your system to help you feel a bit less stabby this morning? Deep Fried Cereal has you covered — just in case you can’t decide. Brought to us by “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian, Deep Fried Cereal is part of a heavily-battered lineup of foods that have no business in the deep fryer.

Available cereal options include Trix and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and will make an appearance at this year’s San Diego County Fair. Enjoy responsibly.

Burritob0t, A 3D Burrito Printer

The Burritob0t, a 3D printer of sorts, is here to help fulfill all of your Tex-Mex desires. No longer will we be burdened with filling and rolling up our own burritos, or ordering the guy at Chipotle to do so.

Created by New York University ITP grad student Marko Manriquez, the prototype and its function are meant to help bring attention to the complexity of the seemingly simple burrito. And, rather than cartridges filled with cyan, magenta, and black — the Burritob0t’s contain crema, guac, and choice of salsa. Pantone fillings cost extra.
