Don’t run away! This particular “Nightmare in Silver" is 100% edible and not the least bit interested in destroying all life on earth. This Cyberman is an awesome cake made by Happy Occasions Cakes, a bespoke bakery located in Cwmbran, Wales. While we understand that the existence of this geektastic cake creates a distinct conflict between the Whovian survival instinct and sweet tooth, we’re pretty sure our overwhelming love of cake would triumph in the end.

If you’re looking way to experience 4th of July fireworks that’s less risky for your fingers and a whole lot more delicious, look no further. Our all-time favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), recently shared her awesome recipe for Explosively Delicious Fourth of July Cookies.

The not-so-secret explosive ingredient is Pop Rocks. In this recipe they’re used in both the cookie dough itself and as a garnish.

"This not only makes them crackle like fireworks but also pays homage to that other all-consuming american obsession: truly trashy candy (and I say this in the most loving way possible)."

Click here for the recipe and instructions.

We’d like to add that you can dramatically transform this recipe in three different, but equally awesome ways by substituting the Pop Rocks with Sizzling Bacon Candy, Explosing Wasabi Candy or Exploding Popcorn Candy.

Macabre baking maven Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here) created this deliciously gruesome dissected cake in response to frequently being asked what’s inside her elaborately decorated cakes and what they taste like:

"Of course only the pretty cakes look like this on the inside, all the creepy and unusual cakes are yummy sponge cakes in many different flavours! ;-)

OK, so I’m kidding. Everything is tasty.”

Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell (previously featured here) just shared a fantastic selection of truly monstrous baked goods over on Reddit.

Here you see a batch of waffle cones that turned into a nest of ferocious be-tentacled beasties, a terrifyingly realistic facehugger made of sugar cookies (glued together with caramel and glazed with milk, sugar and nutmeg), an adorable chicken pot pie (with beak and feet carved from carrots), a fiery Danzig birthday cake, tarantula cookies prepared like Girl Scout Samoas, and a spectacular birthday cake created for a Voodoo-Bayou themed party. The tongue of the snake atop the cake is a handmade candle.

Would you care for a platter of raw oysters? What if we told you that these oysters (as well as their shells, the ice, lemon wedges and even the platter itself) are made of… wait for it… delicious cake? Yum!

This deceptive dessert was created by cake artist Jennifer Noble at the Cheeky Monkey Cake Company located in D’Iberville, Mississippi. The only part of the dish that isn’t cake is the little plastic container of sauce at the center.

Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here) created a miniature, edible Terracotta Army using pizza dough. The palm-sized dough warriors were made to celebrate the opening of the 500th location of Pizza Express, an English restaurant chain, which took place in Beijing.

Los Angeles-based artist and baker Christine McConnell meticulously recreated her parents’ house using German chocolate cake, complete with flickering lights in the windows.

"The foundation of the house is made out of layer upon layer of German chocolate cake. McConnell then covered the base with piped buttercream frosting and melted chocolate—no fondant necessary. She constructed the windows out of frosted sugar glass so that light could shine through from the interior and light up the house."

She also created an oil painting of the house, which Redditor Your_Post_As_A_Movie used to create this awesome faux movie poster.

These two beautifully bejeweled skulls are actually delicious cakes created by none other than British baking sorceress Annabel de Vetten of Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here). From the jewels, gold, teeth and bone to the pillows upon which they rest, both skull cakes are completely edible. They were made using cake, chocolate, buttercream, marzipan, sugar paste, hard candy and sugar balls.

Annabel based her cakes on photos taken by Dr. Paul Koudounaris of actual bejeweled skeletons of Saints, which can be found splendidly displayed in churches throughout Europe. One of the cakes was presented back in March at the opening party for the Encountering Corpses art exhibition at the Sacred Trinity Church in Salford, England - presented and then quickly devoured by over 100 visitors.

If you’re curious about the photos that inspired these wonderfully macabre cakes, we highly recommend checking out Dr. Paul Koudounaris’ latest book, Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs (available via Amazon). It’s as fascinating as it is beautiful.
