Do Not Want: STD Cupcakes

Cupcake ATM
You can now get cupcakes from an ATM. Watch »

A UK baker known as Miss Cakehead, famous for her anatomically correct treats and recently, the Human Meat Shop, has taken dessert to a macabre level with her limited edition line of STD cupcakes. The “treats” will be on sale for Halloween at the Eat Your Heart Out pop-up shop at London’s St. Batholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum. Despite how revolting they look, Miss Cakehead claims that the STD cupcakes have been helping educate people about safe sex. “The STD cakes have really been quite powerful in teaching people something … We’ve had people say it’s the first time they have thought about the risks of getting a disease,” she said. She also makes cancer cookies, carbuncle bars and infected toenail treats.

Arrghhhh!! I’m sorry. I love cupcakes. I have so much respect for party chefs. I think I want to be one in my next life. (That, or a ballet dancer. )I love anatomy and pathology. And science! I love education about safe sex. But these things do not go together. I do not want to eat genital warts. I don’t care if they’re made of fondant. Also, what do STDs have to do with Halloween? Please explain. [Metro UK]

YUM!
Get your sugar fix from an ATM!

I want to take a moment to bow down to Candace Nelson, creator of Sprinkles cupcakes, judge on the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” and now, the inventor of the Cupcake ATM. Candace, you are a goddess. The ingenious idea allegedly came to her when she was pregnant and having “crazy cravings” in the middle of the night and had to get up and make herself a cupcake.

I am not and have never been pregnant, but I am a sugar worshipper. OK, sugar addict with a cookie dough/chocolate/frozen yogurt/frosting fetish.”Crazy cravings” are something I’ve been experiencing my entire life. Yes, I was that 10-year-old who snuck into the fridge in the middle of the night and ate all the frosting off my brother’s leftover birthday cake. I’m not proud of this, but it’s the truth. Luckily, I’ve learned not to indulge in this level of sugar binging as an adult, but the crazy sugar cravings still happen to me and the worst is when I’m having one and nothing is open.

This Bratwurst Cupcake Is The Worst

You guys, this is a culinary creation called Cupcakewurst. What is Cupcakewurst, you ask? Well, it’s cupcake batter stuffed into a sausage casing, grilled, and served on a long doughnut with raspberry sauce “ketchup.” It’s definitely creative; it also definitely makes me want to barf. Would you be brave enough to take a bite? [Buzzfeed]

The Sugar Cube is a food cart in Portland that serves the most ridiculous and amazing sweets you’ll ever eat. Case in point: the Highway To Heaven cupcake, a chocolate cupcake injected with salted caramel, topped with bittersweet ganache, drizzled in coffee syrup and more caramel, and finished off with Ruffles potato chips. It’s not the easiest recipe you’ll ever make, but hey, getting to Heaven takes work. Check out Sugar Cube’s new book for even more crazy delicious treats! [Sweetapolita]

Kenzo Designers Treat The Crowd To … Cupcakes

If there’s one thing that’s generally true about the fashion industry, it’s that fashion and delicious buttery snacks usually (almost never) don’t go together. But not so in the case of design house Kenzo, who flew the bakers from Magnolia Cupcake Company over to Paris to craft special cupcakes for their show. As guests arrived, they were treated to a Magnolia-made cupcake on their seat. For some, it was probs the first cupcake they’d seen in quite awhile. Not, like, P. Diddy and his buddy Shyne (now a Hassidic Jew, how weird right?), who were seated front row at the show. Diddy’s shown an affinity for Junior’s Cheesecake in the past. But we’re sure model Emmanuelle Alt hasn’t sucked down buttercream icing in a while. And if she has, well, we hate her. [Fashionista]

Delicious news! If, per chance, you’ve been considering a move to the City of Angels, this should seal the deal: a cupcake bakery by the name of Sprinkles has clinched my wildest childhood hopes and dreams with a 24-hour cupcake ATM. “In the heart of Bevery Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24 Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors,” reads the press release. This is probably the best thing ever, and I’m legitimately baffled as to why New York didn’t think of it first. This is the city that never sleeps; people need cupcakes at all hours! I hope someone around here catches wind of the idea and opens up a copycat … preferably Buttercup. I love those. [Perez Hilton]
