I love old horror sci-fi movies like The Thing. And so does Instructables contributor leftmusing who made this “The Thing” cake for their significant other’s birthday.
She asked what kind of cake he wanted and it turned out that he wanted something weird and awesome. Not a problem. Since he loves ’80s sci-fi and horror movies, she got an image from John Carpenter’s 1984 version of “The Thing” and went to work.
Using sculpture tools, some YouTube videos and an appreciation for the grotesque, she created this amazing cake based on the movie. It is so nasty and unappetizing, but that is the point. So, great job, leftmusing. You have achieved your goal.
