Disturbingly Life-Like Edible Chocolate Baby Heads!

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

A while back we posted an article about a bakery that looked like a franchise from a Saw film where the creative pastry chef decided to create realistic-looking human body parts from, of all things, bread.

Not to be outdone by some pastry chef, the culinary magicians over at Conjurer’s Kitchen had recently been privately commissioned to provide nightmare fuel for anyone laying eyes on their latest creations…

Edible baby heads made from chocolate.

“A private commission (that’s all we can say), they are solid white chocolate baby heads, and the same size as the head of your average newborn baby. They also TERRIFY me! As I was tweeting earlier there is something SO disturbing about these heads but I just can’t put my finger on it. Maybe it’s as they have no body, or maybe it’s just as they are a baby’s head?!? Either way I am so proud to be heading up a movement which leads to the creation of amazing edible works of art just like these. We’ll be using them in a project very soon I am sure!!!”

They’re not allowed to let loose the information regarding who commissioned these awesomely amazing, yet disturbing, treats.

We’re pretty sure that we’re happier NOT knowing.


[Video] Corn Prices Go Up – Cows Get Candy!

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Who knew? Corn’s a valuable commodity among beef producers. Problem is that because of drought there’s just not enough of it to feed all those cows which has caused the price to skyrocket. Beef producers are now looking to alternatives to corn until the prices drop back down to something resembling reasonable. The alternative to corn?


Massive amounts of discarded candy from manufacturers.

If you order a burger at your local fast food joint and it tastes like someone spilled a pixie stick on it? You’ll know why.

EXCELLENT! Finally, my plan to bring joy to the children of the world using gumdrop guided missiles can come to fruition!

This photo makes us happier than a despot in a candy store. Pictured above is North Korea’s fearless leader Kim Jong-Il inspecting a candy factory, and reminding us that even an evil dictator can have a sweet tooth. According to Kim Jong Il’s former head chef, he has a discriminating pallet and an affinity for Japanese rice cakes. Shady authoritarian rulers and sweet, delicious candy might seem a bit incongruous, but hey, Adolf Hitler was a serious chocoholic and adored chocolate cake. We’re glad that the quality of North Korean candy is enough of a concern for Kim that he took time out of his busy schedule to inspect it and pose for a few pictures while looking fly in his sporting white lab coat.
