I saw this and absolutely had to share it with everyone. Lily Vanilli is supporting young people with cancer and delighting scientists, geeks and deranged woodsmen everywhere by baking special bleeding heart shaped cupcakes this Valentines day.
"Scarily realistic, each edible heart cake is baked with a delicious red velvet sponge, cream cheese frosting and blackcurrant cherry 'blood'. A single ʻbleeding heart cakeʼ is priced at £7 and comes in a cute perspex box tied with apink or red ribbon with a personal note."
The cake is available exclusively through their website and 20% of the proceeds go directly to charity.
For those of us in love with the idea of baking up bits of anatomy for loved ones, Lily Vanilli provides instructions on their blog. Doesn't sound too difficult, right? How about a gallbladder cupcake? Or a Kidney? Yum yum.
Whatever you do though, don't eat your bleeding heart cake like this guy (Warning: graphic cake consumption. I love the cake but I'm now a little scared of Tim Wheeler). Well you can, but I'm not certain you'll earn many points with your significant other on Valentines day--unless they're a zombie.
