No need to rub your eyes or refresh your screen. Yes, this really is a Burt Reynolds Éclair and it may be the beginning of a whole new department here at the Geyser of Awesome. Let’s call it “Things that can’t be unseen, but might also be delicious.”
This hirsute dessert, modeled after Burt Reynolds' iconic 1972 nude Cosmopolitan centerfold, was created by Leeds, England-based bakery Lou Lou P’s Delights (previously featured here) in honour of Movember UK. Burt’s bearskin rug has been replaced by a chocolate eclair and we’re pretty sure that Burt himself is edible too. Considering that Mr. Reynolds has long been considered a mustachioed icon of masculinity, we think this unsettling pastry is a pretty amazing and apposite Movember creation.
Sandy Yoo, an artist based in California, isn’t afraid to tempt fate tantalizing the Great Old Ones by baking a pie bearing the unmistakable likeness of Dread Cthulhu. Eat the pie before it devours your soul.
Then again, perhaps the soul-devouring doesn’t begin until the pie is already in your belly. And if the pie in question is tasty enough, we have to admit it might just be worth the risk. Mmm…pie…

The last time we visited with Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) he was making a mouthwatering Bacon Weave Quesadilla. Nick and his marvelous woven bacon are back, this time with/as a truly tantalizing Bacon Weave Taco:
“I know that tacos with shells made out of bacon have been done before, but none of the ones I’ve seen looked very appetizing to me. It seems like people sort of took the easy way out when making them and just tossed their bacon over a metal object, made sure the strips overlapped a little so they’d stick together and either baked or deep fried it like that so their shells just end up looking like squares of bacon that have been folded in half. Long story short, most of the bacon taco shells out there just don’t look very taco-shaped.”
“Here is my version of π or pie, however you call it. Not only it looks interesting, but is is amazingly delicious! You can expand your imagination and create beutiful [sic] and unusual engravings as I did. It is simple and you will like it! I am sure.”

This awesome Oreogami Oreo animation video was made by Kelly Cheatle of Crafty B and her creative partner Larry Moss. Turning yummy Oreo cookies into art is pretty awesome, but animating your cookie art is super awesome. We hope Kelly and Larry rewarded themselves for this delicious accomplishment by eating their art.
This scrumptious fashion accessory is the work of Shaira who recently opened her own Etsy store called Raspberries and Rum. The 66” long Pizza Scarf is printed to look like a giant slice of delicious pepperoni pizza, but Shaira says customers may contact her to request different pizza toppings, lengths, and other forms of customization. Awesome!
The only problem we have with this incredibly appetizing scarf is that we start to crave pizza every single time we look at it. Then again, maybe that’s not really a problem. But between this and the Bacon Scarf, we’ll end up having to wear a bib on top to protect the scarves from our hungry drooling.

Feeling thirsty? This gruesome creation is a cocktail called the Alien Brain Hemorrhage.
Here’s how you make one:
Fill a shot glass halfway with peach schnapps. Gently pour Bailey’s Irish Cream on top. After the shot is almost full, carefully add a small amount of blue curacao. After it settles, add a small splash (or a few drops) of grenadine syrup.

Lots of people claimed they were going to make this drink for Halloween, but we never saw any pictures. This is the 4th most popular post of 2012 on Geyser of Awesome.

Pickle Candy Canes - It’s a candy cane that tastes like dill! Proudly endorsed by Santa Pickle.
Do you know the legend of Santa Pickle?
He was once a lowly, underachieving personified cucumber who dreamed of one day being garnish on delicious plate of food. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t get anyone to consider him edible. Depressed, he fell asleep in his bath one December 24th and the Christmas spirit appeared. Recognizing the generosity and goodness in the cucumber’s heart, the spirit sprinkled that water with salt, vinegar, spices and loads of fresh dill. When that common cucumber woke up from his nap, he had transformed into Santa Pickle. Now he travels the world in his magic pickle barrel delivering pickles to all the good little boys and girls that prefer savory things over sweets.
We’ve long been of the opinion that bacon improves pretty much anything.
Here you see a batch of awesomely decadent bacon cinnamon rolls created by the folks from The Infinite Yums. There’s bacon in the filling and bacon sprinkled on top. Yum!
Here’s how they were made:
"I went to my favourite butcher and procured some tasty bacon. And I made up a simple sweet dough, using beautiful freshly milled wheat flour from my favorite bread baker . I made a sweet glaze o line my pan and then I cooked off my bacon till it was almost crispy. After draining off the excess grease I finished the cooking of the bacon with some good quality maple syrup, glazing the salty bits of meat in sweetness. I tossed half of the bacon in with the pan glaze, and the other half I sprinkled over the brown sugar butter mixture on the sweet dough.”
Just reading that makes us salivate.
