 Katherine Dey is a cake artist and registered nurse from New York who makes the most amazingly realistic - and creepy - cakes, and is shocking people all over the world with her designs. Would you be tempted to tuck into one of her creepy creations?

Katherine 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 appetising 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."

However, it seems that despite their off-putting appearance, it's very rare that people turn down the chance to tuck into one of her cakes! “I have to say, no matter how disgusted some people may be, in the end no one has refused to eat the cake,” she said.
