Deceptive Desserts is a new book by the amazing Christine McConnell.

Look at this nice, healthy bowl of fruit:

PSYCH! It’s cake! Sweet, delicious cake. It still counts as healthy because it looks just like fruit though, right?

You realize what happened here: this bird was killed, only to be zoomorphized into a bastardized version of itself in a stupid hat. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Terrifying:

I’m completely entranced by this piece, yet can’t find an artist credit anywhere. Ideas? If no one knows…it’s obviously an alien cell phone.

Excellent…I like strong coffee; strong enough to make my head blast clear off my body.

I almost cropped out the caption because it’s so clear that this thing originated from a very unholy place that it just seems redundant.

Isn’t this all our monsters ever really want? (No really, think about it.)

I searched, in gleeful hope, for a vintage TV commercial featuring Drippy the Runny Nose Kid. But alas, no record of one exists. Sorry I couldn’t deliver this thing in action (or maybe I should be saying “you’re welcome”).

I find this photo incredibly haunting. It actually stirs up a visceral unease.

Yes, some might consider the following a deal breaker. She seems open minded. The horse (or…man-horse?), not so much.

Most of the pics in this post require no comment…but don’t skip this androgynous, anthropomorphic pothead (see what I did there?). I find its lean, wiry body very disconcerting.

Happy Thanksgiving

To my American readers…the Fiery Satanic Turkey of Death Cake wishes you happy Thanksgiving.

For those outside the US, here’s a cake that was supposed to be Thanksgiving themed…but I can’t, for the life of me, figure out what it’s supposed to be. This abomination transcends cultural boundaries. Any guesses?

Chocolate Fossils

Posted in craft, food with tags , on November 3, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve been remiss in posting daily due to medical troubles that I’ll briefly detail here at a later date. In the meantime, if you’ve had enough Halloween fun sized candy bars and are ready to move onto something more…paleontological, check out Sarah Hardy’s chocolate tooth fossils!

I would love to stand this T-Rex tooth on my desk and gnaw at it periodically (and by periodically I mean probably finish the whole thing at once).

Oh yes, these are chocolate. Hand molded and painted (with more chocolate).
