Gross desserts might seem like an oxymoron, but this collection proves that sometimes even the sweetest confections can look like something that has been left out to rot. We're seeing a distinct rise in the number of people who aren't simply looking for something delicious, but a story to tell their friends, post to Instagram or simply eat as a testament to their bravery.

On the flip side, perhaps you're looking for gross desserts to serve to enemies, gift to a coworker or a friend that can take a joke. Regardless of the usage of the gross dessert you choose, rest assured that you'll find a number of different varieties here that can be made in your kitchen, bought at a store or upcycled from the garbage (note: the last one isn't recommended).
