This Terrifying ‘Human Cake’ Actually Screams When You Cut It

Human-Cake-China

A human-shaped caked was the gruesome star of China’s 1905 Creative Culture Park, FWF reports. Created by Chinese bakery Ai Si Wei, the jam-filled dessert was designed to look like a large humanoid man. The horrifying part was that it would scream every time you cut into it.

The bakery hired an actor and painted his face the same as the cake. The man proceeds to scream whenever someone began cutting themselves a slice. To create the illusion that the cake was an actual human, it was filled with red and pink jam.

Check out a video from the event.

‘Murica Now Has Red, White, and Blue Candy Corn for 4th of July

candycorn

We already have Halloween candy corn and Valentine’s Day candy corn and even Jesus candy corn, so sure, why not give Independence Day candy corn a spin?

According to a photo spotted on The Impulsive Buy, new “Celebration” Candy Corn by Brach’s is strawberry, vanilla, and blueberry-flavored and made with real honey, and, we’re assuming, pure extract of capitalism. It’s hard to think of anything more culturally appropriate.

Here’s to hoping for sweet potato candy corn for Thanksgiving, cherry candy corn for Washington’s Birthday, and smallpox candy corn for Columbus Day. We’d also like greeting cards.

Wedding Burger ‘Cake’ is What True Love Looks Like

BugerCake2

Wedding cakes are a time-honored tradition. A celebration of love. A symbol of happiness, etc. etc. But let’s be honest, no matter how good the cake, nothing beats a solid, juicy burger. (For those that don’t agree, just humor me here.)

Cue in this phenomenal burger tower, aka burger wedding cake, aka awesome. This savory wedding centerpiece swaps out traditional tiers of white icing for four tiers of humongous burgers.

If this burger cake is any indication of what a happy, healthy marriage looks like, this couple is off to a rock-solid start.
