Katherine Dey is a baking enthusiast that puts together a series of realistic cakes that have a gruesome twist to them, based off of her experience as a nurse in New York City. The cakes showcase different body parts, limbs and injuries expressed through desserts with edible blood and inners recreated using a variety of sweet desserts.

The cakes tap into a uncanny theme for decorated desserts, making use of Dey's experience as a nurse and the things she sees in the hospital. The cakes are recreations of anatomical things such as exposed brains attached to the spinal cord, severed head, stabbed hearts and even the inside of stomachs. The cakes feature edible fondant to recreate the ligaments and red velvet cake centres to replicate the blood.
