Before someone like me freaks out at the photo I swear to god it’s just cake and chocolate and shit like that. I swear.
Thorax Cake by Barbara Jo
” The plan was for each organ to be made out of a different kind of cake and to secrete a different color of fluid when it was cut into. Previous heart cakes have bled fresh, homemade raspberry sauce. This year I made raspberry, strawberry, kiwi, mango, and blueberry sauces. Sadly, the organs didn’t bleed as well as I had hoped when I cut the cake, as each organ was relatively small and couldn’t hold much sauce. Also all the moving around after filling the organs made it hard to keep the sauce contained in the little cavities I hollowed out. The heart bled pretty well, but the other organ fluids weren’t very dramatic. On the bright side, there were lots of leftover sauces, which were all quite delicious. But I’m getting ahead of myself. My intended organ-cake-sauce combinations were as follows.
Heart – orange cake with raspberry sauce
Lungs – apple spice cake with strawberry sauce
Kidneys – orange cake with blueberry sauce
Stomach – ginger cake with mango sauce
Liver – chocolate cake with kiwi sauce
Small Intestine – jelly roll with red currant jelly
- white chocolate rib cage
- food coloring to paint the organs
- buttercream frosting blood
- little veins on the organs first with a piping bag, then put big globs of gore on the ribs with a knife
- a little spritz of corn syrup to give it that all-important oozing, wet look
The recipe and directions are very involved, so it’s best to click through the title link to see the pics and descriptions. :)
I can’t really handle how perfect this is. Like, it’s just sugar and flour and I’m gonna need to tag it as gore. That really appeals to me for some reason. I don’t even eat meat, what is happening.
Edit: I can’t stop staring at it…
The Otagods didn’t pick me from the lottery this year, so here’s where I start begging! I’M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO TABLE WITH AT OTAKON 2014’S ARTIST ALLEY.
I’m able to pay for half of the table immediately, and may be able to offer you transportation to/from and a place to stay during the con! I’m also a lot of fun to table with, promise.
in 2010 i attended the worlds worst cartoons panel at san diego comic con and i t was honestly one of the most enjoyable experiences ive ever had in my entire life, until we hit this video and then it was THE most enjoyable experience of my life. if youve never heard a room full of grown people scream before youre really missing out. when it started we all reared back in our seat simultaneously
Grave, “an open-world, surrealist survival horror experience where light is your only weapon in a constantly changing reality.” As it’s described, Grave is a survival horror made with the goal to allow players to explore the world in the way that best suits their own tastes. They have described the elements populating the world as having “multiple ways to interact with them” to allow bold adventurers to run off into the night and face the creatures face to face, and cautious survivalists to hole up in bunkers at night to wait out the monster onslaught. The developers describe their world as Dali-inspired, and explain that it physically transforms overnight to make every day a unique experience. Your character is never equipped with a gun or melee weapon, instead having to rely on flashlights, matches, gasoline, and firecrackers to combat the light and sound-sensitive monsters populating the world. Ripples in the landscape create misplaced patches of city, forest, oasis, or spawn strange artifacts. The story is described as procedural, leaving the player to explore the world to gather clues to what exactly is going on while they forage for supplies to survive.
They’re only about 1/6th of the way to full funding with 19 days left to go, a pledge as low as $10 can get you a copy of the game’s story mode, it could be worth checking out if you like horror games.
Oh wow this kickstarter really started picking up steam! Six days to go and $9000 to raise! They might make it after all!

Concept art for Sound of Silence, a psychological horror game based on the idea of manipulating the game itself to prey on the player’s fears. You can watch the original concept video HERE.
This is a game I’ve been really hype about for the past year! I’m happy to see it finally go into production, because I think it has a lot of potential to revolutionize gameplay and programming mechanics horror games.
Where can I get this game. I don’t think I’ll be able to aleep wrll unless I get one
You should just play amnesia if you are looking for a game that preys on your fear
You seem to have skipped the part where this game /actively changes/ it’s environment and gameplay in order to play off the fears that it detects the player suffers from.
Sound of Silence has the potential to bring innovative new mechanics to the horror gaming industry. Amnesia is an excellent game, but please don’t just brush off the merits of this one.
Shapeshifting would be fun as a superpower because it would mean that you have to come up with creative ways to solve problems like in a situatipn where you’d think.you’d need invisibility you could just pretend to be someone else or like an animal or an inanimate object, or if ypu needed to be able to fly without being seen or in a small space you could be a bug or a little bird, and you could explore and travel in literally every type of environment because you could change every aspect of ypur physiology you’d need to in order to survive
seripusly WHY would you pick any other single superpower
oh yeah ypu could also like become a cat and get petted and sleep all day and be stealthy as fuck how is THAT not great
For me the trick would be figuring out how to solve all those problems while still just turning into a giant tidal wave of maggots every time
Listen this might not work but I’m gonna turn into a giant centipede here and just see where it takes us okay
