Prior to the reign of Pinterest, holidays were boring occasions filled with normal looking food and generic decor. Now, thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can DIY the hell out of every facet of your celebration and amaze your friends and family with your insane food and craft wizardry. Like anything, though, you can take it a step too far. Here are seven Easter treats that saw the line ofacceptability and hopped right on past it:
This is basically just pound cake sandwiches stuffed with Cadbury creme egg-laced buttercream and some coconut 'lettuce' but they look visually unappealing and putting creme eggs and egg salad in the same thought sequence kind of induces vomit. Also, I'd feel like a serious glutton stuffing a big pound cake sandwich in my face hole.
This is Peep pizza and no, it's not a clever play on a dessert pizza. This is actual cheese pizza. With Peeps on it. Pass the barf bags, please.
It's sushi, but with Peeps. Rice Krispies treats are the rice and the seaweed is fruit roll-ups. I give it points for creativity and cuteness, but even adorable candy sushi can't change the fact that Peeps are disgusting and were invented by forces of evil.
I have no idea what this has to do with Easter, but Pinterest said it's Easter-related so it must be true. Basically you mix cream cheese, butter, and Funfetti cake mix together, then make a ball and dip cookies in it. The creator says it tastes like Dunkaroos, which is intriguing, but it's still basically like eating a huge ball of icing.
Cadbury eggs sliced in half and topped with a big dollop of yellow buttercream frosting. Possibly delicious, but if you're at all a visual person the yellow buttercream will just keep reminding you of actual egg yolk on chocolate and blegh.
There's nothing wrong with Jello eggs, but these ones are white. They look like hard boiled eggs, and they have big squares of color that look like someone shoved Jolly Ranchers into egg whites. Would you want to eat that? Yeah, I didn't think so.
Basically you stack a brownie on top of a donut and cover it in melted creme egg 'yolk' and seriously, that's enough, Cadbury Egg Lovers. You're going too far with your food that looks like other food. My brain can't handle it.
