Brain Activity

Soylent Green is Angelfood

January 15th, 2009 by Madeleine Robins

I think I’ve mentioned that I’m into cake decorating in a big way.  It’s an expensive hobby, but not as expensive as cocaine or skiing, so I indulge myself within the limits of reason and my budget.  But I’m not yet good enough to do something like, well, this:

That’s right.  Courtesy of, my favorite morning giggle, it’s–wait for it–a cake brain.

Cakewrecks also shows a kidney (rather squarish to reflect my understanding of anatomy, but hey…) and a seriously gorgeous, gory heart with all the wiring and veins and stuff.  Also a set of intestines.  But you’ll understand why the brain is my fave.

Now, where’d I leave my spork?

    For some reason that little cluster of ganglia at the end shifts this from brain to brain monster.

    that looks so good, and i bet if you placed red syrup on it to make it look bloody (hmmmm may be strawberry juice) i think it would just make it better! Oh man that looks good enough to eat…

    re: Hollaman — Dude, not strawberry juice. Use grenadine — much more widely available and it’s got that nice viscosity!

    Alas, I did not make it, I just saw the picture and thought it was swoonworthy. I am no way in that league.
