Bloody awesome Walking Dead cake too disgusting (and cute) to eat

We're not sure what it is about zombies that makes people want to plaster them on cakes, but we definitely love the results. First we saw a master baker's take on The Walking Dead, and now an amateur steps up to the plate with this gruesome, action-packed birthday cake featuring the cast in the midst of a zombie brawl.

This gruesome treat comes courtesy of a poster on the RPF forums who calls herself Maelina.

"Every year for my husband's birthday (Gorgot3000 on this forum, the Dark Helmet dude lol), I make him a special cake. And this year I decided to bring the challenge up a notch (yeah right)! I wanted to make everything out of sugar and cake, everything edible. So all I used was Cake, Sugar paste, fondant and food coloring."

The result of Maelina's quest to make a completely edible and completely horrific birthday surprise for her husband is a scene right out of Robert Kirkman's dreams. Rick, Andrea and Daryl take a stand on top of Dale's Winnebago, firing down into the zombie horde while Carl takes aim from a nearby truck and Glenn goes to work with an ax.

While the wide-angle photos of this masterpiece make it clear that some awesome zombie carnage is happening, the close-ups of the characters are strangely adorable. We love looking at them so much we almost wish Maelina would take her skills and put them to work on a Walking Dead claymation holiday special.

Check out the photos below, and for even more head over to Maelina's Flickr page.
