Detroit’s Metro Times
"For those expecting imminent doom… recipes for delectable cakes to ease the transition to the netherworld. Why depart on an empty stomach? Even our death rows offer a last supper to criminals about to meet their maker. The photos and the stories that come with each recipe may be the best part."

The Arlington Advocate
“…a light-hearted delicious approach to Armageddon.”

I think I did not do enough research when it came to this book. Sure it was full of quips, funny stories, my kind of sarcasm, and creativeness but this was not the recipe book I had in mind at all. I'd rather use this as a... really I have no use for this book. I'm not one to get rid of books at all so I've kept it because you really don't know when you might need it. It's not exactly a coffee table book, not something to put on display in a kitchen, not a go-to, or even something you'd read more than once. I was pretty disappointed. I mean, seriously, if I'm looking for a cake book I expect them to all be edible! One cake was literally made from mud (the Haiti earthquake if I remember correctly). That's where they lost me. But like I said this may just be due to my not doing hours of research before buying the book. Silly me.

I thought this book would appeal to my sense of humor, being a little twisted.

However, the book it's completely useless, and not entertaining at all.

I wish they didn't even waste the poor tree that this was printed on.

I saw this book in a store and was intrigued with the clever idea. I didn't have a chance to look at it very thoroughly but thought it would make a great gift for a friend. I ordered it on my phone after I left. I wish I would have read the preview first because in spite of the funny, clever idea, there are just too many f-words for me. Amazon gave me a refund, which I appreciated.

If you want cakes that look like they were made by a 8 year old that peppered her descriptions with the F word and sarcastic remarks about God , then yeah have at it. This was really disappointing because the cakes look awful and not well thought out.Ahem Moving on.

Every recipe has its own great apocalypse story, with stunning art direction while being very well written. My favorite definitely has to be the Sodom and Gomorrah Fruit Cake.

i was so excited to put good use to all of those headless barbies i had lying around from a postmodern feminist art project i co-produced. i made the cake, following the recipe to the letter...unfortunately, the "indiscretion represented tactlessly" i chose involved some used dental dams and a bottle of absinthe. having faith that the author had spent a lot of time in the test kitchen, i trusted that things would turn out differently.

luckily, i have a thing for firewomen, and, as such, ended up with my own angel. thanks, ms. o'malley, for destroying everything i own but bringing me true love.

Disclosure: I begged a review copy...

The world is ending soon, and there's no way to stop it. We could sit on the hill and play violins while we watch Rome burn...or we could eat cake!

Apocalypse Cakes is a beautiful-looking book, with gorgeous food-porn images of perverse (and perverted) cakes, like "Immigration Mayhem Mexican Chocolate Cake," "2012 Mayan Chocolate Cupcakes," "Gay Wedding Cake" (stolen from a straight person's wedding, with leather queens on top), "Black Deforestation Cake," "Pharma Nation Nut Cake," and more.

Filled from top to bottom with snark, this is a thoroughly, merrily, grandly, and pointedly offensive book, and I highly recommend it. Two pony nukes up.
