We’ve seen sushi presented in a few unfortunate ways. But as we all know — everything is better in cake form. Brought to us by Now I’m a Cook!, The Sushi Cake is layers of raw salmon, avocado, cucumber, and rice.
Remember, kids… Graffiti is wrong. That is of course, unless the wall art is created with delicious cake icing. Over the last few years, Montreal-based street artist Shelley Miller has enhanced a few urban settings by decorating the walls as if it was cake.
Often inspired by the textures, patterns, or existing graffiti of the wall — Shelley creates very temporary art that will last until it no longer adheres to its stone canvas. Or, until the locals lick it clean.
After all of the gross-out confectioneries that we’ve been subjected to recently — there’s finally one that’s at least anatomically correct. Brought to us by Conjurer’s Kitchen, The Anatomical Head Cake was inspired by a collection of wax models from La Specola museum in Florence.
See… wax models. Nothing too creepy about that. Stop staring at me, cake!
Inspired by Georges Méliès’ 1902 silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune, and Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian’s relief work of 1929 — the perfectly orbed ice cream is given craters and filled with layers of cake and other goodies.
UPDATE: A limited number of the Häagen-Dazs Ice Moon Cakes will be available in the UK starting October 24th. Details can be found at www.facebook.com/haagendazs.
For cupcake enthusiasts that enjoy their food in nugget form, there’s Cupcake Nuggets. Brought to us by Cupcake Project, the nuggets are cut from actual cupcakes, breaded with cupcake crumbs, and then deep fried. To complete the effect, Cupcake Project offers suggestions for making faux savory dipping sauces — such as raspberry jam to look like barbecue sauce.
The Slice Skin Cake is brought to us by Britain-based cake designer Gillian Bell. Crafted to resemble sutured flesh — it’s the perfect cake for a horror movie fan, or a very bad surgeon. No mention what the skin cake is filled with — but we can only hope it’s red velvet.
