Crazy cake with poppable pimples
Are you a cruel parent looking to embarrass your teenage child in the cruellest way possible? Then do we have the cake for you…
Canadian cake decorator Mark Robillard has created a new birthday cake complete with poppable, and edible zits (we’re not sure whether we’re supposed to be pleased or not that the zits are edible).
Mark, who lives just outside of Toronto, was inspired by zit popping specialist Dr. Sandra Lee (yes apparently this is a profession). Dr. Lee, who is better known as Dr. Pimple Popper, is renowned for travelling around the world to help people with irregular spots, zits, cysts and a whole bunch of other gruesome stuff we’d rather not discuss!
However, the Doctor has become so famous that she even has her own zit popping board game! ‘Pimple Pete’ (which inspired the cake) where players have to try and pop Pete’s pimples without bursting the ‘mega zit’ (we’ll stick to Monopoly thanks)
Speaking of the cake, Mark said…
“I have had a few requests to make pimple cupcakes but I wanted to take it one step further.
“My husband who religiously watches Dr. Pimple Popper suggested I recreate the Pimple Pete Cake, so I did!
“People have mixed reactions to it they either love it or hate it but secretly I think they like it because it’s satisfying.”
For anyone looking to replicate the sugary spots, the cake is a vanilla cake with dark chocolate ganache filling. The spots were made using a fondant ball full of Venetian cream !
Perhaps Mark will find a new niche market for fetishists of spot popping who also love a bit of cake? However, we’re not too sure ourselves.
