Don't let this get out to my crazy friends, they have already asked for enough gross things on cakes!

something to be learned here!!!!

so, if those are made out of bread dough ---

just what kind?

is it unleavened and therefore does NOT rise as baking and therefore does not deform

or is it leavened bread which would rise and deform???

if it is leavened, the how the heck does he get it to rise just the right amount in just the right way to make the shapes?

are there molds involved?

some trick to the bread recipe that allows it to be shaped after baking? (tho' it did appear to be baked after shaping?

and, yes gross -- but only because of the way he painted it.

could just as easily be turned into custom busts of people. (remember that life size replica of the bride wedding cake from a few months back --- on that one only the body was cake, the bust was polyclay -- imagine if that bride had access to this guy!)

personally, I think it's great fun! (but then I do so enjoy teaching the makeup unit in theatre class where we do burns, cuts, various wounds, impalements, etc.! :icon_rolleyes.gificon_smile.gif

As cool as stuff like this is, I was (notice past tense) dinner while reading the forums tonight and when I got to the realistic meat hooks... I literally started gagging.

Unforunately it was left over Christmas ham that was rather tender and well textured and with it was twice baked potatoes in my mouth... I couldn't swallow it either.

I feel ill.

I think it's cool too. To think that it is a baked good which we all know doesn't always behave how you would think it would. I think it's pretty amazing that he can do that with dough. Yes it's painted like a horror show, but there is art in there. There's a novelty to it.. it is.. afterall.. just bread and not actual faces and hands and feet.

That is just wrong! There is no way I could bring myself to even eat it!

Can anyone translate what the man in the vidio clip is saying? It would be fun to hear his comments.

That's just grotesque and too graphic for children! I wouldn't want my children exposed to something so graphic. Talented or not, it's down right wrong!

It might be that it's molded just after it's baked.

I have special boiled egg molds that work like that. Right after the egg is boiled, you peel it while hot and put the egg into the mold/press. Surprisingly the egg does not crack and you can make very detailed designs with the eggs.

I wonder if that is what he does with the bread.

Interesting. GROSS!

Did you notice at the beginning of the video, the kid looked like he tried to turn his head and the taller(couldn't tell if it was an adult) forced his head back toward the case? That is horrible!

I actually saw a segment on this bakery on either the Food Network or the Travel Channel. I can't remember much about it but it is bread.

Gross! Nasty! No way in ...bleep... would I take a child in there to see that!

But, there is some talent there. It looks like he has found a way to get people in the doors. I wouldn't go but I don't go see horror movies either and yet they still make them. So there is a market, gross yes, but there is a market for it.

I am curious about the dough though...hmmm.

I just don't get it.
What has happened to people that they have the need to buy baked goods in the form of grotesque body parts? And what has happened in this guys head that puts the images there for him to create?? Just sick...
but thats just my opinion. I agree with others though, there is NO WAY I would allow my children to see these. They will have to see enoug real violence and hatred in life that I can't shield them from, i'm not going to force violent bread on them! icon_eek.gif
It's just so sad to me...

This makes me want to go on the Adkin's diet.

I think the most disturbing are the ones on the hooks. Man, that stuff is wierd!

Idreamofcakes: I thought the same thing when watching it......what is going on in that guy's head that he can envision someonen all mangled and bloody like that. Gross!!!

i bet they're expensive since that one guy (who seemed very proud by the way) only bought a nose! lol

Great for Halloween, but geez! I think I'll have to skip lunch today. Hey they could call it "diet" bread, who would eat it?

I wouldn't want to eat that or take my kids in there. I would be having nightmares for days!

Well, there is a market for it, especially during Halloween or maybe for a horror film festival. There are certain types of breads that can be shaped and then baked into whatever form you want.

I think its really, really cool. Gross, but really cool and shows a lot of talent.

Where do you get egg molds? Sounds like it would be kind of fun to play with!

I'm scared that there are people in this world that find this artistic....What the hell is the purpose??? Other than to encourage violence?
Before you jump all over me....I do believe everyone has a right to their opinion....well, that's just mine.
I think one can prove their talents in creating ANYTHING else other than bloody hacked up body parts.... icon_confused.gif

AMEN Sweetcakes!!!!
Violence has been too widely excepted, and as someone whose family has been affected by too much violence (from outside of our family) I cannot in any way see it as a form of art.
I just see it as someone glorifying violence and evil for money,(and why on baked goods???) and before anyone gets upset...I believe the same thing as far as movies,video games, and ect..that do the same thing.
Again just my opinion.

Before anyone gets too judgemental remember this is something done in a foreign country. There's a good chance that it has something to do with their culture or religion so unless you know for a fact it might be better not to decide that it's promoting violence.

Personally I find images of someone being tortured on the ancient form of the electric chair to be at least as nasty as these pieces of bread.

No matter what the reason these people make those body parts it shows some amazing talent. You don't have to like art for it to be art.
