Holy Crap, It’s MEAT CAKE!

Oh wow, do I want to do this:

This lovely little confection looks sweet as can be… but it’s MEAT! That’s not cake, it’s meatloaf, and that’s not frosting, it’s mashed potatoes. Genius! The meat cake pictured here is by David Seah, but the originator of the meat cake craze is Black Widow Bakery. David’s has a stuffing filling (it’s a turkey meatloaf, made for Thanksgiving), and Black Widow’s has gravy filling and a rendering of a T-bone steak in ketchup on top. Both sites have helpful step-by-step instructions on how to make your very own meat cake. The Black Widow site has a whole gallery of other people’s meat cakes. Thanks to Tiki Avengers for the heads-up!

    Ha! I should make that just to freak out my kids…they despise meatloaf in all of its delicious forms. The fools.

    Oh my God! I so totally need some meat cake. I may have to have a dinner party just so I can serve this.

    Yeah, it makes me wish my birthday were coming up, but it’s a ways off. Hmmm… maybe I can make one out of lambloaf for easter.

    wow. that just completely turned my stomach.

    but maybe if they covered it with bacon instead, and the inside meat was corned beef with heinz mustard inner frosting it just might take the cake. nerrrrr, dork pun alert!

    Yeah, I’m having a hard time selling Hanford on it. I suggested just trying to make meat cupcakes, but he thought that might just be worse — too cute to be meaty.

    I’m trying to think of the best way to incorporate bacon into the design. My current line of thought: what if I rolled up a strip of bacon, into a rosette sort of shape, secured it somehow (toothpick? temporary thread?), and then deep-fried it… I wonder if, with a little practice, it might come out looking like a very lovely bacon rose, suitable for cake-topping?
