Cupcakes With Chronic Diseases

Cupcakes With Chronic Diseases

Don't touch them! They're undoubtedly contagious.

Over the past couple of years, FiTR has gone from being neutral on the subject of cupcakes -- from tolerating them, only wishing we had an entire piece of cake instead -- to downright hating the tiny near-cylinders of dried-out cake surmounted by bad and agonizingly sweet frosting. But can a cupcake make you barf just by looking at it?

In a link provided by San Francisco correspondent Tracy Van Dyk, who, ever vigilant, has sent us the link from the shores of Lago Argentino in far-off Tierra del Fuego, a London baker named Miss Cakehead has created cupcakes which mimic the appearance of diseased skin. Complete with oozing scars and pustules that even a dermatologist would cringe from.

But these cupcakes have not been made out of spite for a sexual companion who has transmitted a disease, or a teenager suffering from a bad zit infestation, but for St. Batholomew's Hospital Pathology Museum as a warning against unsafe sex (see condoms in photo). Convinced?
