Interior designer Tanya Nisa’s baking skills have sadly not gone down well with everyone. That’s because the mum-of-four from Lincoln doesn’t bake your average cakes, her sweet treats all resemble parts of the human body. Her creations mean you could be chomping down on a Victoria sponge that looks like severed fingers, feet, or arms. The 42-year-old has spent the past seven years perfecting her craft of gory cakes after being inspired by the film Hannibal. Yet the realistic cakes that seep fake blood have scared more than a few online. Some have branded her a cannibal for the life-like creations, but Tanya has hit back at them saying they’re just cakes. But all of this reaction is a testament to her skills as a master baker.
‘After watching Hannibal, I decided I wanted to start baking gory cakes and see how real I could make them,’ she said. ‘It’s completely different to your every day pretty looking cakes. It freaks my kids out.
