A cake made of blood. Wow. The legendary blood cake returns, this time for you! For those unfamiliar with the wonders of the Blood Cake, blood can be used as an effective egg substitute in cooking. It was discovered a couple years back that you can make meringue out of blood, and I got Harvard to pay to see if it was possible to make a version of Angel Food cake with blood instead of egg. Turns out, it works.

Take this Definitely-Not-An-Angel-Food-Cake home for your family and friends. Astound your neighbors with a cake made of blood! The taste is eerily similar to that of angel food cake, with an almost undetectable (3 out of 4 people who were not me couldn’t tell the difference, and I couldn’t either, so I’m pretty sure that one person was just a weenie) hint of iron.

Protein. It’s good for you.

(Depending on availability, this cake will either be made with cow or pig’s blood. Pickup at auction. Source of blood will be specified day of. Picture is just exemplary and does not represent what the actual cake will look like.)
