Human Cake

Creators of gruesome edible body parts – rippling fondant skin, smooth chocolate skulls, and fleshy cupcakes – Eat Your Heart Out is the UK-based food-art nonprofit headed by Miss Cakehead. Known best for promotional collaborations with television networks and film producers, Eat Your Heart Out also works to raise awareness of physical and mental health issues through themed projects like STD cupcakes and Anatomical Cocktails. These sweets, by so fully resembling human flesh, sustain a bizarre, semi-cannibalistic relationship between food and eater: though their contents are no different from anything found at a bakery, an eater must overcome the mental hurdle of sinking their teeth into human “skin” or “fat” or “pus” before taking the first bite.
