Katherine Dey, a registered nurse in New York, somehow also finds the time to make gruesome, lifelike cakes that look like a collection of things you'd find in a serial killer's shed. It's not just appetizing (if you're Hannibal Lector or part of the Addams Family), it's amazing. When she cuts into a cake that looks like a giant placenta, you'll believe it's a giant placenta. Gross/cool!

This Valentine's Day, give that special someone a piece of your heart.

Said Dey to BuzzFeed:

I am inspired by a lot of things. I love that strange feeling I get when something looks real but it isn’t. Or when a cake doesn’t look particularly appetizing but it is a cake and it tastes delicious. I like to make people feel two conflicting things at once. The subjects I choose are things that have interested me forever, be it anatomy, mushrooms, or portraiture. I love portraiture. Making a portrait of someone helps me to really see them. I love the details.


And she's gotten to love the details of anal probing...
