Katherine Dey is a 30-year-old registered nurse from upstate New York. She has a very interesting talent that's she's turned into a creative hobby.
She makes totally edible cakes that take on very unique forms, like this "brain" with the stem attached.
Dey started making cakes a few years ago, with her first being a tree stump covered in mushrooms. Since then, she has progressed into other areas.
She's made everything from cakes that look like human organs...
...to this very realistic-looking lamprey.
Dey told BuzzFeed that her inspiration to make the cakes comes from many places:
I am inspired by a lot of things. I love that strange feeling I get when something looks real but it isn't. Or when a cake doesn't look particularly appetizing but it is a cake and it tastes delicious. I like to make people feel two conflicting things at once. The subjects I choose are things that have interested me forever, be it anatomy, mushrooms, or portraiture. I love portraiture. Making a portrait of someone helps me to really see them. I love the details.
