In search of the perfect gift to give someone you totally hate this holiday season? Look no further than these beautiful “rude cakes.”
Sarah Brockett, the mastermind behind The Bold Bakery, whips up raunchy confections that are perfect for anyone on your shit list. “The idea for the Bold Bakery began as my senior thesis project, at Grand Valley State University, where I earned my BFA in Graphic Design,” Brockett wrote to HuffPost Taste in an email. “I was trying to find a way to combine my two favorite activities — baking and creating hand lettering. I knew I wanted to create baked goods with interesting typography, but I didn’t want them to be ‘normal.'”
Normal they are not. Crafting this exotic pumpkin pie was a tedious process, Brockett said. “I had to create the word ‘whore’ multiple times out of pie crust. Then I stood them upright in the bottom of the pie, rotating around the pie from the center.” The word “whore” will be displayed no matter what part of the pie is sliced.
Each ineloquent word and indelicate phrase has either been said by Brockett herself or someone around her. She keeps track of them in her sketch book and, come baking time, pairs them with the food item that seems most appropriate.
As Brockett writes on her site, “The Bold Bakery is not where you want to purchase Grandma’s birthday cake from. It is, however, the perfect place to have a pie created for your cheating husband, or your bratty pre-teen daughter.”
Surely there must be a few people on your list who are deserving of such a vulgar sweet.
If you happen to be void of hatred, these would still make a great gag gift because, holy shit, they’re just awesome.
