Dismembered, Rum-Filled Chocolate Hands and Feet

I really hope you already ate breakfast/lunch/dinner. These rum-filled, hand-painted gnarly treats come from none other than Miss Cakehead herself, the same lady who brought you STD cupcakes.

The macabre chocolates were prepared for her annual Eat Your Heart Out pop-up in London that runs from October 25th to the 27th this year. The life-sized hands and feet were crafted by the talented folks over at All Mine Patisserie and are filled with Kraken Rum, who also happens to be sponsoring the event. The event will be titled “Feed The Beast,” a fitting name for an occasion filled with exposed bone marrow and bloody fingernails.

Pop These Candy Pills & Get ‘Sugar High’

Remember at camp when the counselors would tell you to close your eyes while they told a scary story and a bowl of wet grapes, cold spaghetti and dried apricots would make its way around a circle of kids. Remember how the story wasn’t scary or believable and the wet grapes didn’t feel like eyeballs, dried apricots like tongues nor spaghetti like veins, but at least afterwards every one got to indulge in some good ol’ wiggle worm dirt pudding. Like most things since the fifth grade– appearance, taste in music, life in general– that part of us which is only satisfied by eating things that resembles the inside of human innards has, too, improved.

Eat Your Heart Out, an event held this week at St. Bart’s Pathology Museum in London will host decadent desserts, among them Popping-Candy Placebos invented by Animal Vegetable Mineral. Tasha Marks, the founder of AVM has created edible hair, edible taxidermy (you know, to eat with tea) and moss-flavored jelly cubes – and she has the credentials to do it! She studied the history of jelly and desserts at a university in London. A long way from dirt worms, these gel capsules dissolve in your mouth, relinquishing sweet candy beads. They are prescribed to hypochondriacs and if you know anything about placebo effects, it may just cure your non-existent illness or unlock the opium that exists inside our brain. Like I said, things have improved since the fifth grade.

STD Cupcakes – For If You’ve Ever Thought About Banging a Cupcake [Mildly NSFW]

Truth be told, we’re not sure if even our safest, most gentlemanly cupcake eating methods could help you out of this one.

With fondant disguised as warts and scabs and even a green-oozing “cockcake,” these STD cupcakes by blogger Jenni Powell are “anatomically correct” and have actually helped to promote STD awareness.

We believe it. I for one can’t look at these for more than a second and not cringe. Fear and loathing, indeed.

STD Awareness Cupcakes by Jenni Powell (AKA “Miss Cakehead”), available at the “Eat Your Heart Out” Pop-Up Shop Oct 26 – Oct 28, St. Bartholomew’s Pathology Museum, London.
