These Marzipan McQueen Insects Pay Homage to the Late Designer

I knew I hit it big when, while trolling through Cakehead Loves Evil (my favorite blog), I saw something that came close to a religious experience. Marzipan McQueen insects--all the flavor, but half the cost of the real thing.

Made to look like the designer's stylized bugs, the edible ones are better, because they taste delicious. Made by cake maven Lily Vanilli, the Marzipan McQueen insects just make me feel good inside.

Implications - And they have the potential to make you feel good inside, if you're willing to get over the whole 'this feels like we're eating insects' aspect of it. Not only are these edible insects tasty, they're a strange part of history -- the first luxury brand modeled insect cakes ever created.
