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.

The Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders can’t stop marveling at the impeccably detailed, impossibly tiny miniature food created by Rochester, MN-based artist Kim of fairchildart. From fruit and veggies to mouthwatering main courses, tantalizing sweets, and even a cannibal’s feast, all of Kim’s 1:12 scale food sculptures are handmade using polymer clay, needles, colored chalk pastels, rocks, razor blades and awesome attention to detail.
"I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll’s House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It’s a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it’s spiraled into an obsession ever since!”
When asked how she manages to make her miniature food look so realistic, Kim says that secret to her success is: “a good dose of artistic masochism and being a stickler for details.”
She also has pieces available for purchase via the fairchildart Etsy shop.
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.”

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.
Here in the northern hemisphere summer has officially begun, which means the time is ripe for picnics and
tricking treating friends and family alike to ice cream sandwiches that looks just like mouthwatering cheeseburgers.
These fantastic frozen treats were created by Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings (previously featured here), who dubbed them Chilly Cheeseburgers (get it?). The buns are made of vanilla cake, the beef patty is chocolate ice cream and the fixings are made of modeling chocolate and cookie icing. Yum!
There’s no question that a stack of fresh pancakes is awesome, but what about one giant fluffy pancake? Today we learned mixing a batch of pancake batter in the bowl of a rice cooker and then cooking it, just like you would when making a batch of rice, creates one great big floofy pancake that instantly reminds us of Totoro’s belly.
What’s more, just like regular pancakes, you can add all sorts of things to the batter, such as cocoa powder or pieces of fruit and chocolate, to further enhance your adorably plump tototorcake.

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.

Freelance artist and fabricator Jennifer L. Johnson created these mouthwatering, but completely inedible yarn food sculptures. They were made for a Lion Brand Yarn trade show. It may be comfort food that can’t be eaten, but it can still offer comfort as a delight for the eyes and a soft place to rest your head.

While we were celebrating National Donut Day by eating Chewbacca-shaped maple bars, John Clarkson, enterprising owner of Mister Eaters fish and chips shop in Preston, Lancashire, England was celebrating by stuffing traditional jam donuts with thick slices of Spam, dipping them in batter and then tossing them back into the deep fryer until they turned a mouthwatering golden brown.
Mr Clarkson said: “I have always loved Spam - it’s bloody beautiful and I don’t think it gets enough recognition. The idea for the Spam doughnuts just came out of nowhere and I liked how jam sounded with spam and thought I could give it a try.
I am not even a fan of doughnuts to be honest. They are so easy to make and taste stunning, the saltiness of the meat really goes with the sweet dough, sort of like ham and pineapple really.”
We’re pleased to report that Clarkson isn’t the only person who enjoys his Spam donuts. According to him they’ve been flying off the shelves for a mere £2.50 ($4.20) a piece.
The only thing better than a bowl full of chocolate chip cookies is chocolate chip cookies served in a bowl that’s actually MADE of chocolate chip cookies. Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings created this awesome chocolate chip cookie serving bowl. It’s easy to make and even easier to devour.
