Food writer Kevin Shalin, better known as The Mighty Rib, has had to come out and deny rumors that he fell into a “butter coma” after eating 413 really tasty but lard-heavy biscuits! It had been reported that witnesses had seen Shalin convulsing after consuming the buttery biscuits and the story of his near demise quickly went viral.

It all started after a report about Shalin and his near-death experience with the biscuits appeared on fictional news site Rock City Times. Despite the fact that the site describes itself as being “Arkansas’ 2nd most unreliable news source” several other outlets like The Daily Mail Online, The Mirror and The Sun covered the strange story without realizing it was a hoax!

As a way of celebrating her daughter Laura’s graduation from Indiana University, Carol Gambrel decided to get her a face cake! She went into her local bakery, discussed the school colors with the baker and arranged to have a little scroll on it too. She also thought it would be a nice touch to have a graduation cap drawn on her daughter’s head, but the baker appears to have misheard the woman and that is how the cat-astrophe cake came about!

When the cake arrived, there wasn’t a graduation cap adorning Laura’s bonce, but rather an image of a kitty etched there instead! Luckily the family saw the funny side of it and now refers to it as the “cat cake”! Continue Reading

When Cakecrumbs blogger Rhiannon was approached by her sister (who is studying an education degree) and asked to bake a cake that represented the various different layers of the earth’s crust, she knew she was in for a difficult challenge.

Her sister wanted to use the cake as an educational tool to teach primary school children about geology and because Rhiannon won’t admit defeat when it comes to cakes and baking, she decided to take on the mammoth task anyway! Continue Reading

Epic Road Runner Cake That’s Just Like Watching The Actual Cartoon!

Pirikos-Cake-Design
Check out this totally amazing Road Runner cake created by Pirikos Cake Design. Looking at it is pretty much like staring straight at a scene from the classic Looney Tunes Road Runner cartoons.

It’s managed to capture the narrative brilliantly and includes Wile E. Coyote’s destined-to-be-doomed blueprint plan to catch the illusive Road Runner and shows how it all goes wrong. If you look closely, the hapless coyote has somehow managed to light his own tale instead of the fuse on the ACME rocket he is sat astride. All the while, the cheeky Road Runner looks on amused, completely confident that the clumsy Wile E. Coyote will never catch him! Continue Reading

14-Year Old McDonald’s Burger That Looks Like It Just Came Off The Grill!

old-burger
Check out this 14-year-old McDonald’s burger patty that looks almost identical to one that has literally just come off the grill! Though the pickle and what not has long since disintegrated, the 14-year-old burger is remarkably unchanged – which says a hell of a lot about the preservatives that are used in meat!!

The burger belongs to Utah resident David Whipple, who sent the patty to the TV show, “The Doctors” and told them it’s incredibly long story! Whipple purchased the burger from McDonald’s some 14-years ago on 7th July 1999. He had intended to keep it for 2-months as an example piece to show his friends the workings of enzymes, but he forgot about it until 2 years after that when his wife pulled it out of an old coat pocket where he had tucked it away, wrapped in a paper bag.

Any budding superhero knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and what better way to liven it up than by making it look like the mighty Captain America’s iconic shield!

That’s what Kitchen Overlord did, taking the traditional Mexican breakfast of huevos rancheros (Salsa, cheese, beans, a tortilla and an egg) adding a little bit of Super Soldier Serum (ahem food coloring will also do if you can’t get your hands on that) and being a little artsy with the arrangement!
