Thorax Cake
Apparently this was made for a pumpkin carving party (Halloween, I assume), but it would work great as an April Fool's Day food prank as well. It's easily one of the most disgusting food creations I've ever seen, and yet it's just cake. (via Sore Eyes)

I teach school and my elementary school students would absolutely LOVE the grossness of this cake.

I am SO impressed... all be it very disgusting. The write up was awesome. I can't believe people actually enjoyed the raspberry sauce!

J, he never said it was a hoax. He said it would be a good April Fool's Day joke. If you remember, earlier he had an article about substituting foods as a prank.
