Image of the Week: Skin cake

Last weekend, specialty bakers and pathologists from across the United Kingdom joined forces for a disease- and anatomy-themed cake festival at  St Bartholomew's Pathology Museum at Queen Mary, University of London. The event, titled Eat Your Heart Out, included a bake sale and lecture series.

This image shows Gillian Bell's skin cake, a rich fruit cake covered in stitched surgical marzipan. More images of the ghoulish goodies can be viewed on the museum's Tumblr.
