"The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.”
Because who doesn’t love anthropomorphic food and animal friends? Our friend and awesome artist Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here) just opened a solo exhibition of new paintings, entitled Happy As Kings, at Gallery Nucleus. The show runs through September 21, 2014.
Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson poem, “Happy Thought”, the artist introduces us to a group of gleeful royals that find happiness in the ordinary yet wonderful things in life.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it down in person, click here to view the exhibition online and even purchase originals and prints.

This awesome Pizza Bed was created by freelance art director, designer and self-proclaimed unicorn enthusiast Claire Manganiello. The pillows are the fluffy crust, the sheets are the sauce and the comforter is a huge spread of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. We’re wondering if it’s also pizza-scented.
Because if you can’t always be eating pizza, at least at night, when sleep prevents you from eating it, you can still dream about eating it. That is, unless sleeping in this bed means you’d instead end up dreaming you were a topping on someone else’s pizza. Waking up from that nightmare in an actual Pizza Bed could be trouble. Delicious trouble. Mmm… pizza…
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.

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.
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.
We all have favourite comfort foods, but have you ever considered using any of those foods as a comfy pillow instead of a tasty treat? Would you rest your head on a slice of pizza, a taco or a piece of macaroni & cheese? Perhaps you’d rather cozy up to a peanut butter & jelly sandwich or a creamy eclair?
Canaveral Groves, FL-based fiber artist Natalie Quirk has a test kitchen where she knits and crochets these delightful Comfort Food Cushions. Her current menu includes Lunch, Dinner, Sides, Dessert and even a selection of Snacks. She also accepts commissions for custom off the menu items.
Check out Natalie’s Etsy shop ComfortFoodCushions for her entire selection of comfy handmade faux food.

Randy Liedtke created this Bloody Mary that’s so awesomely over-the-top it clearly belongs in our Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys.
The cocktail is garnished with one footlong sub, four pieces of fried chicken, one entire pepperoni pizza, two double cheeseburgers, onion ring, french fries, garlic bread, pickles, olives, onions, one whole lemon, one whole lime, jalapeños, and last but not least, a second Bloody Mary.

In our ongoing effort to bring you the most awesome cakes we can find, we’re please to present the work of English baker Louise Caola, another cunning and creative baker who devotes her energy to creating cakes that don’t look like cakes at all. Instead they look like dinners of beautifully marbled roast beef, grilled steak and chips, burritos, sausages and mash, roast chicken, fish sticks, and pizza, to name a few.
"The 23-year-old designed her first sausage and potato mash cake for a friend’s birthday and received praises from everyone who got to see it before it was devoured, which fueled her passion for novelty desserts. She immediately started working on even more impressive cakes in her free time and posted photos of them on social networks like Twitter and Instagram. Soon Louise was flooded with orders from all over the internet and she started taking her hobby more seriously.
A few weeks ago, the amateur baker finally decided to quit her job and focus all her attention on her newly-created novelty cake brand called Poppy & Lulu (after a couple of close childhood friends). For the time being she only offers hand-delivery around London, but hopes to one day expand nationwide and have a team of bakers helping her make fun cakes.”
Louise’s edible creations take up to four hours to make, Achieving such convincing results involves lots of trial and error, but we’re willing to bet that those errors are still delicious.
"From that day forward, Captain Gloucester never left port without a double sardine special"
We love this new piece of chalk street art by Ann Arbor, Michigan-based artist David Zinn, aka Sluggo (previously featured here). If you ever encounter a sea monster, we hope you’re also ready to offer him some piping hot pizza.
