Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
We don’t know where Imgur user TryAnotherPiece works, but that’s not important. What really matters is that for their coworker’s last day of work they made this incredibly awesome farewell cake. Nothing says “So long and good luck!” quite like zombies, severed body parts, and lots and lots of chocolate.
Here’s a video tutorial for an April Fools’ Day prank that’s also a sweet treat. YouTuber Kawaiisweetworld teaches us how to make wonderfully convincing Pizza Cakes using yellow cake mix for the crust, red buttercream frosting for the sauce, shredded coconut for the cheese and an assortment of deceptive sweets for the toppings.
The complete recipe is provided in the About section of this video page.
“You can have your cake and drink it too!!!”
Those words of wisdom come from the one and only kitsch expert Charles Phoenix (previously featured here) who concocted this festive Irish Whiskey Soaked Lucky Charm Cake in the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Monday March 17th.
But wait, it’s not just a whiskey-soaked cake. It’s a whiskey-soaked caked with a magical rainbow inside. It’s awesomely delicious.
We don’t usually associate looking at shoes with feeling ravenously hungry, but that changed as soon as we set eyes on these mouthwatering cake and ice cream heels handmade by the Shoe Bakery. They may not be edible, but they are completely wearable.

Cake is awesome. No matter where you are, what day it is, time it is, what you’re wearing or what the weather is like, it’s always a good time for cake. And besides just eating it ourselves, giving cake to someone else is also awesome. You can use it to wish them a happy birthday, congratulate them, cheer them up or simply say, “I think you’re swell.” But giving someone cake isn’t always that simple. Perhaps they’re far away. Cake doesn’t generally make it through the mail unharmed.
But wait, Sandra Denneler of SheKnows.com has come up with an amazing way to send a mouthwatering slice of cake to anyone anywhere - or at least anywhere the mail goes. And thanks to her DIY
recipe tutorial, you can do it too. Sanda calls these creations Cake Postcards. They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get crushed or spoil:
"Imagine how happy and excited you’d be, if you went to your mailbox one day and pulled out a slice of cake. Now you can surprise friends and family (and probably even your mail carrier), with this three-dimensional, mailable postcard, cleverly disguised as cake. With only five ingredients in this crafty recipe — a large sponge, spray paint, caulk, spray adhesive and heavy paper — it’s a piece of cake. Literally. Postage is around $3 per slice, but the reaction from the recipient will be priceless."

Texas-based artist and Instructables contributor tchitwood created this awesomely gruesome Walking Dead Zombie Cake. She modeled the cake after one of special effects creator, director, and actor Greg Nicotero’s own appearances on The Walking Dead. He’s thoroughly revolting to behold, but being made of nothing but cake, frosting, and hand-painted fondant, we’re sure he’s completely delicious.

What’s better than toast? How about scrummy pieces of toast (or a slice of cake) served with a custom-made syrup drawing? That’s precisely what’s on the menu at an anime, comic book, and video game shop in Seoul, South Korea called the Saboten Store: awesome pop culture syrup art.
"Saboten, which means "cactus" in Japanese, opened early last year and was founded by a gentleman named Kyung Chul Han, who used to work as a video game journalist and as a game developer at NCsoft.”
Along with an order of cake or toast and a beverage, customers may request any character they’d like to see rendered in sweet syrup for roughly US$8. The skilled staff, who cosplay while working, seem more than able to rise to any style or character challenge.
Head over to Kotaku for many more photos of the amazing syrup portraits at Saboten Store.
