Zombie Cake recipes

Yesterday’s Zombie Lawn Ornament sent me on a zombie frenzy looking for more domestic zombies. What I came across surprised and delighted me. The sisters from Theyre Coming to Get You Barbara have posted up the most disgustingly detailed zombie themed cakes…all complete with instructions for making your own.

Zombie Cake

The “field” it is coming up out of is made of homemade French cream candies. The head is a sour cream chocolate chip cake with red dye to create a bloody brain effect. Icing creates the oozing eye socket and the eye itself is a homemade hard candy.

And added bonus is she includes a recipe for Cordial Cherry Eyeballs.

Tasty and gross!

The most gruesome and realistic of all however, is The Thorax Cake.

White cocolate creates the rib cake which encompasses the organs…which are all individual cakes! The heart is an orange cake with raspberry sauce, lungs are an apple spice cake with strawberry sauce,
for the kidneys she made an orange cake with blueberry sauce, stomach is a ginger cake with mango sauce, the liver is a chocolate cake with kiwi sauce and finally for the small intestine a jelly roll with red currant jelly.

These cakes are truly works of zombie art and I plan on trying them all out eventually. For now though I think I’ll start with the Cordial Cherry Eyeballs ;)

80s Nostalgic Furniture

When I was growing up one of my favorite candies was those little button candies.

They all taste the same….sugar…and when you ate them you always got little bits of paper in your mouth too. I was a weird kid.

Anywho the design wizards at Jellio have made a bench that looks like a strip of those deliciously papery button candies. Behold, the Button Bench!


The buttons are rubber and squish down when you sit on them then pop back up after you stand up. The price to own this colorful piece of nostalgia? $1,400….just a wee bit more that the $1 it costs for a bunch of sheets of button candies.

Heres a few more awesome 80s nostalgia pieces from Jellio.

This was always one of my favorite toys as a kid…I think its because my optometrist always gave me one of these after my appointments when I was a child and I would play with it on the car ride home. Hell I still play the digital version on my computer all the time! Now I can get a giant one on my wall! Bonus, they do customized ones!
