When I first saw donut's photo of a cake with a girl's face in Japan, I thought it looked rather cute. And then I read the story behind the cake:
Possibly the creepiest thing I ate in Japan.
I had this at the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art's very elegant cafe. And I gather that this cafe has a tradition of representing the museum's current exhibition in dessert form. Well, the exhibit on right now is Henry Darger, who is best known for his vastly creepy collages of little girls being tortured. And let me say, it was six kinds of weird to eat one of Darger's little lovelies in cake form.
...And now I think it's a little less cute.
