A couple weeks ago I came upon the new octopus cake pan that had just become available at Williams-Sonoma. I nearly put up a post about it, even, just because it was so nifty and the decorated sample cake pictured with the pan (image at left) was so pretty (and also because it reminded me of all the elaborately decorated shaped cakes my mother baked for my and my brother’s birthdays when we were kids).
Well, internets, I should have known we couldn’t give you anything nice without you ruining it in a spectacularly hilarious fashion. Behold the awesomely clever demon spawn of the new octopus cake and the long historical tradition of the creepy, creepy doll cake:
And it’s gluten-free and vegan! I laughed for about ten minutes, and every time I look at the pictures I start all over again. No, I don’t think the development team had this in mind when that cake pan was manufactured. And strangely, you can’t buy the pan at Williams-Sonoma any longer….
