Zombie pancakes!


Nathan "Saipancakes" Shields has made some zombie pancakes: "I make a lot of pancakes for kids, but these I made for myself."

Behold! The Pizza cake!


The pizza cake started off as a thought-experiment, entered into a competition -- but now it is a reality that you can prepare at home (but probably shouldn't). Here's the original, which was apparently ripped off by Pillsbury.
