Weird World Department: Body Parts Bakery

A Thai baker has taken shock art to the next level with edible baked goods that resemble human body parts.


Dozens of gruesome heads, feet and hands were showcased like works of art behind glass cases in a scene closer to a Hollywood horror film than a bakery.

To their surprise, locals found 28-year-old baker, Kittiwat Unarrom sculpting the grotesque limbs from flour dough in the back kitchen.

The sculpture, painting and graphic arts graduate says he is creating the fake body parts to illustrate the old Buddhist saying "Don't always believe what you see, because what you see might not be true".

Growing up around his mother's bakery, Kittiwat says he was curious to use ordinary cooking materials like dough, cashew nuts, raisins and chocolate to create genuine works of

He says he was inspired by the idea that we are what we eat.

Despite initially causing quite a stir in the neighbourhood, Kittiwat says people have
become increasingly interested in his works.

"I didn't expect such a big response and the huge number of orders from customers."

Would you eat any of these creations?

Here's the video from the bakery:

I'm not quite brave enough to tackle anything that looks quite so, er, human. You might start to wonder about your friends if they ordered a semi-decomposed head as your birthday cake! Mind you, could almost be appropriate for a crime writer, almost, but not quite. Ew!
