Holly knows that a cake in the likeness of a zombie head with exposed brains and the evidence of its last, bloody meal still stained around its lips says two things: (1) I love you, and (2) have a happy, happy birthday.
I had the zombie cake made at Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago for my boyfriend’s birthday. It was a red velvet cake (of course).
Of course it’s red velvet cake! Because there’s no such thing as decomposing-flesh-with-festering-sores-flavored cake. (I know, because I checked on The Google.)
Bleeding Heart Bakery produces a variety of dessert-type goods from ingredients that are local, sustainable, organic, and vegan. Which is a hell of a lot of earth-savin’ for just one bakery.
Lest you think that cakes made of hippie bullshit must taste a lot like rice cakes soaked in flax seed oil, let me dissuade you from that idea. As a former resident of Berkeley, the hippie bullshit capital of the world, I can tell you that these uber-wholesome baked goods can be surprisingly delicious. In spite of the absence of baby deer meat trucked all the way from Alaska.
Thanks to Holly–who is clearly a girlfriend of the highest caliber–for sharing the deets with me. Check out more photos of the dismembered zombie cake on Holly’s Flickr photostream and her friend naycolla’s photostream.
