Maker of 10-lb marzipan pig decides it's too gruesome to give to his daughters

spindelmann says: "Jonas Laberg made a 10 kg marzipan pig for his five- and seven-year-old girls. It turned out pretty evil."


    1. Nah… about $100 if you buy it at a grocery store here. Something tells me you wouldn’t buy 10 kg of that stuff in 500g packets though; it’s probably a lot cheaper at wholesale prices.

  1. I don’t see what the problem is. My dad made one of those for me when I was a kid, and I turned out fine.

  2. A few bushels of almonds never had a clue what was in store for them.  Make sure you check out the posterior shot in the link.  Too much information . . .

  3. Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am most sorry to hear that your two children will not be receiving their marzipan pig this year. Having examined the pictures myself you’re quite probably correct that your loved ones will not take it in the correct spirit. However, have you considered that even its mere existence threatens their peace of mind? One day they might stumble across it while exploring the shed or basement and then who knows what could happen to their fragile little minds.

    Clearly the only solution is for you to send it to me and I will eat the evidence.

    Yrs, etc. etc.

  4. Wtf is marzipan?! Why would you make one into …. That?! Is it a cake?! Demand Unicorn Chaser Cake – stat!!

  5. It turned out pretty evil.

    Boy, if I had a nickel for every entry in my lab notebook that ended with that…

  6. Odd looking thing for sure, I had to do a google on wtf marzipan is and then googled marzipan pigs and saw some pretty cute things then I saw this link titled “Repulsive Marzipan Sculptures
    probably one in there NSFW.
    Anyhow, Jonas Laberg hasn’t won the prize for the most creepy ever but I’ll sleep better tonight knowing that he decided not to give it to his five and seven year old girls.

  7. I guess I’m the only one chuckling at the thought of the two little kids running around shrieking like banshees once they saw their ‘cake’.  They’d have a blast and you know it! It kinda looks like a skinned ‘Stitch’ from Lilo and Stitch…

  8. No, I made it from 500g-packets. If you look at the second photo in the set you can see them.

    Whereas we do have a butter shortage here in Norway, we are not missing marsipan. Those 10kgs came to about 280NOK or 60$.

    And true enough like someone pointed out above, it’s 10 kgs, not lbs. and the girls are not my daughters, they’re daughters of friends. And they are in for a surprise, as the mum saw the pig and think they can ‘stomach’ it (although probably not literally), so they’re getting it after all. She promised to take photos.

  9. Well, I’m just going to say something nice. The detail on that thing is incredible. And the… the… oh, who am I kidding, it’s a horrible offense against nature (runs away crying).

  10. This is what  child-proof vending machines are for

  11. “For God’s Sake, won’t someone think of the children!”
    Oh, wait a minute…
    Thank you, everybody; I was having a really shitty day, until I got to this post. It’s just had me laughing out loud. Excellent work, Jonas, little kids need to be scared shitless every now and again.
    My kid brother used to watch Dr Who through the crack in the kitchen door…

  12. I see 100% edible talent. 

    Put a butterfly on the end of its nose and call it “cute enough to eat”.
