The Dayalets

Posted in absurd, food, photography, thrift horror, vintage with tags , , , , on April 14, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Brace yourself for The Dayalets; an instructional (and I use that word loosely) “suiatable for framing” series of food beasts designed to hang in doctors’ offices.

BurgerBill

The idea was the educate the masses about vitamin deficiencies and nutritional imbalances. Wasn’t there a pamphlet they could hand out?

MrMoss

While tempting to generate my own sarcastic commentary for each of these, I think it’s only fair to direct you to the source, where the curator has taken a good deal of time to display and write commentary for the entire series (featuring gems such gems as “This looks like some self-proclaimed sex expert circa 1951.”)

I actually went through the whole series and was repeatedly stunned by these creations. Who wants one on the food table at my next party?

I wasn’t joking when I said “suitable for framing.”

This is some expert needle felting (a technique I’ve been meaning to learn). She brings adorable little morsels to life!

I couldn’t find much written info about Neli Josefsen, but she is responsible for this i-can’t-believe-it’s-a-cake creation.

This is edible!

Anyone have favorite cake artists?

Valentine Roundup

Posted in anatomy, food, installations, valentine's day with tags , , , on February 14, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I suppose I’ve made more of a fuss over Valentine’s Day on this blog in previous years. Not sure why it kind of escaped me this time around, but since I didn’t do a countdown or themed posts, here are a few links to “Valentine” goodies (I use the holiday label loosely).

Conjuruer’s Kitchen

Conjuruer’s Kitchen makes the most majestic macabre morsels I’ve seen.

Yes, this is a cake. They all are.

I find it very interesting…the crossing of gag-worthy subject matter with delicious confections. To eat or not to eat…

I was gifted a Conjurer’s Kitchen hand-sculpted white chocolate raven skull by the lovely and talented Tonya Hurley…it’s too beautiful to eat. I keep it on display.

Creepmas Day 11: German Santa Breads

These came up in an unrelated search…and I was intrigued. I could find very little info on them, save for the title of “Santa Breads.”

Does anyone know more about the origin of these glutinous little creepies?

This is not “creepy” in the monstrous, undead sense, but I would say the effects of meth count (don’t do drugs, kids!).

Check out this brilliantly crafted Breaking Bad Gingerbread RV (smoke out of the top…nice touch)!

Watched Poltergeist II the other day (great movie, but the first was awesome), and happened to pause for a break on this comical frame:

Oh, you think your pumpkin is scary? THIS is how they did it in early 20th Century Ireland.

Ah, the 80′s…when movies had their own cheese-tastic rap theme songs. Take Monster Squad for example. What’s your favorite 80′s horror movie?
