    om nom nom

    I'll admit, I'm not one for cake pops, too sweet for my tastes, but even if I did eat them I couldn't bring myself to consume these. Behold! Punk Storm cake pops from Kitchen Overlord (they've got a handy how-to on their site). Now I'm imagining them flying through the air. Previously in X-Men
