"Chinese Lotus (bound) Foot" Cake

    Newer Older

    "Chinese Lotus (bound) Foot" cake, commissioned for a podiatrist's birthday. I considered candy corns(!), bunions, or fungus, but decided upon a condition he had hopefully never encountered in person.

      OK. Now that's gross! But funny, in a sick kind of way! :-)

      Wow - I always wondered how the foot looked. I remember learning about the practice of foot binding when I was much younger. I have to say, that is the most hideous-looking cake I've ever seen - I mean that in a good way! :)

      Wonderful in terms of artistic accomplishment, uniqueness, and merging history and the intended's career. Questionable in terms of gross out factor and likeliness of it actually being eaten. And please tell me that those are sliced almonds . . .

      What I want to know, is how did said podiatrist like the cake?

      Hi! Here from cake wrecks. It's an awesome cake, but you have an error in your reference link. If anyone wants to see the actual bound foot, it's at shoesnboots.50megs.com/bound ft.jpg (You had an extra space sneak in there.) Great work, disgusting cake. I want to know how the podiatrist reacted, too.

      Thanks for noticing the link (I had linked manually) - corrected! As far as the podiatrist's reaction, I never actually saw it firsthand. Upon delivery I met his associate at a somewhat fancy-pants Manhattan lunch establishment. I did hear later that he loved it, so I'll have to trust my source. :)

      Well, the important part is that the recipient loved it, right?

      Evil, disgusting, misogynistic...I could go on. But reading your commentary was a sore trial for those actually interested in learning something thanks to your repeated attempts to demonize liberals as people who would defend this practice. Wanting to understand the context of a certain behaviour in no way requires acceptance of that behaviour.

      Djinn... it's a cake. From a site featuring unappealing cakes. By the way, in case you can't figure it out, it's unappealing because it's a foot. There's NO political content in this thread.

      Maybe you need a drink and a nap. And a brush-up on your English skills.
