Dessert, Anyone?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:30 pm

Imagine a wonderful dinner party with friends or family – perhaps even a holiday dinner, complete with all the trimmings. Imagine how you will delight your guests when, for dessert, you serve a Thorax Cake. The baker’s goal was to create an authentic looking thoracic cavity, containing all the parts as shown in Gray’s Anatomy. In addition, “The plan was for each organ to be made out of a different kind of cake and to secrete a different color of fluid when it was cut into.”

Check out the Thorax Cake here, and don’t miss the following two pages that detail its creation.

And, if that doesn’t float your boat, the site owner and baker, also has created a Zombie Cake. I know of a fellow in Colorado who might be interested in commissioning one of these babies.

Emeril, eat your heart, lungs, liver, spleen, kidneys and digestive tract out.
