The cake is a guy

Katherine Dey (previously) was commissioned by Buzzfeed to make face cakes of staff members Jazzmyne and Keith. Hilarity ensued. Kindred spirits Natalie and David Sideserf emphasized the with the “Till Death Do Us Part" bit for their own wedding cake. Gruesome not your, er, piece of cake? There are plenty of other ways to make disturbing cakes.

Man, eating my own head would be so great. (and so meta.)

"Nah, I couldn't, I'm stuffed. Okay, just a little head."

When I hear "disturbing cake" I think of The Edible Woman.

For some no doubt unjust reason, I was put in charge of making the family birthday cakes when I was in my early teens, so I always tried to decorate them as offensively as I could.

My go-to decorating theme was to treat the cake as a trashy dirt lot canvas, so I'd do a pile of cigarette butts and beer cans (they make fake miniature beer cans, but I lovingly hand crafted cigarette butts), or a bulldozer mowing over some greenery, or a car doing donuts or something. But one year, I found these really badly made plastic babies, so I put them all over the cake with red frosting around their mouths. I was going for "the cake is a big pile of raw meat that all these babies are eating," but I'm bad at cake decorating, so I had to explain what was supposed to be happening.

I stopped doing that a long time ago, though, except for the time that I found out that someone shared a birthday with the Kola Superdeep Borehole, so I made a birthday cake for that and put his name in parentheses. That was just a one-off because I thought of a really good burn.

I hate to have to toot my own horn about all of the terrible, ugly cakes I have made, but if I don't do it, nobody will.
