Gory Decapitated Wedding Cakes

Natalie Sideserf Made Her Own Awesome Yet Disgusting Wedding Cake

— February 9, 2014 — Art & Design
It's not unusual to want to make your wedding special and unique, however when it came to her big day, Natalie Sideserf's unique twist to her wedding really takes the cake.

A cake artist for Sideserf Cake Studio, Natalie Sideserf put her skill and talent towards making a wedding cake that featured the severed heads of herself and her husband. In addition to being a bloody mess, the cake is also incredibly detailed, so much so that it must have been incredibly surreal to eat it. Showing that they're not all doom and gloom however, Natalie Sideserf had the saying "till death do us part" scrawled at the bottom.

While Natalie Sideserf's decapitated head cake may seem bizarre to you or me, Sideserf states that they were "perfect for us" seeing as how her husband loves horror movies, and she likes sculpting humans.
