You’re getting an anatomically correct edible heart for Valentine’s Day

Pin it

I'm probably not kidding, as these novelty treats seem to be all the rage. Some weeks ago, David Klein — a crazy man who founded the Jelly Belly company a long, long time ago — debuted his latest creation, an anatomically correct gummy heart. It weighs two-and-a-half pounds and oozes candy blood in eleven places.

So you're like, "Whatever, some dude made something whacky. No biggie." Yes biggie, because today Boing Boing tips us on a seemingly unrelated English baker who's selling her own anatomically correct heart, this one in cake form. It's made with spongy red velvet and, yes, oozes tasty blood.

If you think that foods modeled after organs are hilarious, this is your year.
