Behold: The Perfect Cake For Carnivores With A Sweet Tooth

That big ol’ hunk of medium rare roast beef up there? That’s not meat. It’s a cake, and so are the roasted potatoes on the side. Ridiculous, right? This savory-looking sweet is the work of amateur baker (I’m not sure I agree with the word “amateur” here) Louise Caola, who specializes in making realistic looking meals out of cake, fondant, and frosting. After the jump, check out a few more of her mindbending works of edible art, including cakes that look like pizza, bangers and mash, and McDonald’s menu items! Keep reading »

Dream Or Nightmare: A Blue Cheese Lollipop

Three words: Blue. Cheese. Lollipop. OK, let’s all just make a communal “Eeeeeeeewwww!” sound now to get it over with, but after we’re done with that I feel compelled to report that Lollyphile, the company who makes these cheesy candies, claims that they’re actually really good, which apparently came as a surprise to them:

“It started off as a joke. We were all scared to try it. Maria (our model) popped it in her mouth and said, ‘Oh! It’s awesome!’ And we assumed she was lying until she ate the whole thing. And then we apologized for doubting her and tried them out and they were, in fact, awesome, because you know what? Sweetness & sharp cheeses go together- it’s why restaurants drizzle honey on gorgonzola. Anyway. It’s fun, it’s sweet, it’s bizarre, it’s an adventure.”

I’d definitely be more willing to try one of these than, say, a breast milk lollipop (shudder), but I’m still not sure I’m sold. How about you guys? If you’re keen for a lick of sweet, salty cheese, your can get 4 lollipops for $10 on the Lollyphile website.

Dream Or Nightmare: The Macaroni And Cheese Martini

I'm Dating A Cheeseman
The pros and cons of dating a cheesemonger. Read More »

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the macaroni and cheese martini. Unlike other strange martinis we’ve seen in the past (I’m looking at you, pho cocktail), this drink doesn’t aim to replicate the flavors of mac and cheese with various liquors and spices; it’s actually just a martini glass full of smoked cheddar macaroni and cheese that is served with a shot glass of vodka to drizzle over the top. I think it sounds delicious (like, I’m not even that big of a drinker, but I would binge drink mac and cheese if given the chance). Would you like to try it for yourself? Buy a ticket to San Diego and make a reservation at Donovan’s Steak & Chop House, where this crazy concoction is currently being served. Cheers! [Boing Boing]

What Would You Do If A 7-Foot KFC Bucket Randomly Appeared In Your Yard?

“I was driving by, I saw this giant Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket in my yard, and I thought for sure I was hallucinating, so I called my teenagers who were at home and had them go outside.”

Seriously, have you ever read a better opening line to any story, ever? This gem of a quote comes from a woman named Aleena Headrick, who did indeed discover a 7-foot KFC bucket in her Waynesboro, Georgia, yard. Whereas I would have assumed it was a not-so-subtle message from hungry aliens and retreated to my underground bunker, goodhearted Headrick decided to share the strange scene on social media. “Too often we just need something to laugh about,” she told reporters, “so I put it on Facebook and told [my friends] that I would bring chicken to the next potluck.” Keep reading »

Do you eat normal cakes and find yourself wishing they resembled human flesh? If so, you probably need to seek urgent professional help, but once you’re in an established therapy routine, you can always call up the creatively twisted bakers at Conjurer’s Kitchen to make your creepy confection dreams come true. Yep, the same people who brought us edible chocolate baby heads have now created this amazingly detailed (and edible!) vanilla cake version of Buffalo Bill’s skin suit from the movie “Silence of the Lambs.” With black cherry filling, naturally. As impressed as I am with the artistry, I might need to add a new category to the terms of my online detox: no more desserts that look like murder victims! [Neatorama]

Awesome, Slightly Terrifying Dessert Of The Day: Pop Rocks Firecracker Cupcakes

Firecracker Cupcakes

I’m not sure we should be encouraging anyone to put firecrackers in their mouth (I’m sure there was a 2001 episode of “Jackass” that already did that), but if you are yearning to munch on a firework without, you know, dying, you might want to whip up a batch of these firecracker cupcakes. They don’t just look like the real thing — they’re also filled with Pop Rocks to cause a mini explosion in your mouth. How festive! Happy 4th of July! [She Knows via Neatorama]

An Open Letter To Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter

A former fat kid responds to Vogue writer Dara-Lynn Weiss Read More »

Dear Cookie Butter,

I wasn’t aware of your existence until I was standing in line at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and noticed a display of jars with a sign that said “LIMIT TWO PER CUSTOMER.” I went to investigate but was stopped by a middle-aged man with a handlebar mustache wearing a Gryffindor t-shirt. Apparently sensing my curiosity, he held his hand up and shook his head. “You don’t want to buy that,” he said ominously.

“Why?” I asked. “What is it?”

“It’s cookie butter,” he said, “and once you start buying it, you will never stop.” Keep reading »

chocolate peanut butter cup beer

This may be a big week for ga -rights activists, America, and, like, history. But it’s also a big week for all us chocolate peanut butter lovers out there. That’s right, Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter has descended from the heavens (or Abington, Maryland) and graced us with its sweet, sudsy presence. For a measly $10 at DuClaw Brewing, you can get buzzed on the chocolately-peanut-buttery libation that actually tastes and smells like a chocolate peanut cup, according to Uncrate. No word on where else in the States it’s hopping (heh) up next, but sweet baby Jesus, we hope it’s in ours. [Uncrate]
