it was amazing

Disclosure: I begged a review copy...

The world is ending soon, and there's no way to stop it. We could sit on the hill and play violins while we watch Rome burn...or we could eat cake!

Apocalypse Cakes is a beautiful-looking book, with gorgeous food-porn images of perverse (and perverted) cakes, like "Immigration Mayhem Mexican Chocolate Cake," "2012 Mayan Chocolate Cupcakes," "Gay Wedding Cake" (stolen from a straight person's wedding, with leather queens on top), "Black Deforestation Cake," "Pharma Nation Nut Cake," and more.

Filled from top to bottom with snark, this is a thoroughly, merrily, grandly, and pointedly offensive book, and I highly recommend it. Two pony nukes up.
