You may remember Linzey Rae as the woman who combined her talents for cooking and metalcore music into a Shepherd’s Pie recipe for metalheads. Now she’s back with a new video from Metal Kitchen that teaches us all how to make a colorful layered birthday cake and decorate for the occasion with streamers and hats – all belted out in the form of dark, pissed off, double bass-soaked metal music.

Watch it below.

Andrei Muntian of MTM Wood employed a carefully arranged series of maple and walnut strips to fashion a hypnotic optical illusion cutting board.

The functional work of art was created by mapping out the pattern as a model in SketchUp before beginning the process of cutting, planing and assembling the wooden components.

See how it comes together in the video below.

YouTuber “The Food Surgeon”, who is described as “a culinary practitioner not qualified to perform surgery of any kind”, recently grabbed a scalpel and some surgical gloves in order to perform a “Reese’s peanut-butter-ectomy with Oreo cream transplant.”

Madness! Clearly we need to grab some torches and form a mob.

In a nutshell, the procedure involves hollowing out a Reese’s cup and replacing the peanut butter with carefully removed Oreo cream filling. As you’ll see, it’s a bizarre, yet strangely captivating waste of time that will probably be a hit with those who enjoy triggering autonomous sensory meridian response.

Pizza Hut Big Game Golden Knots Pizza

Pizza Hut has decided to offer a Super Bowl edition of their new Stuffed Garlic Knots Pizza that is reportedly sprinkled with nearly $100 worth of edible gold.

Why the hell would they do something like this? Well according to the chain’s VP of marketing, it’s because the Golden Anniversary of the Big Game is being played in the Golden State, hence gold pizza. Can’t argue with that logic.

The most interesting part of all this is that customers can’t actually order the golden pie. Instead, it will be offered to 50 lucky customers who order a Stuffed Garlic Knots Pizza on Feb. 7. It will also arrive in a custom gold-colored box along with a $100 Pizza Hut Gold Card.

Potential candidates must be 18-years old and live in Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, or West Virginia. Strangely, the states that actually have any involvement in the big game have been left out of the offer.

I take back what I said about logic.

An artist named Kylie from Letterpress Bakery, is said to be Vancouver’s premier 3D cake designer. I believe it based on this amazing Simpsons / Star Wars mashup cake featuring a 3D, edible sculpture of Homer Simpson dressed as a Stormtrooper (which was inspired by the artwork of Ephin Cozmo).

Her process is detailed in the video below, and while watching it, you may catch yourself wearing the same overjoyed expression as Homer himself.

IKEA Taiwan is hoping to resuscitate the art of conversation by eliminating smartphones from the dinner table. How you ask? The company has developed a new hotplate that will only function once a sufficient number of phones have been placed underneath it.

There doesn’t seem to be any details on how the plate actually operates, but apparently the more phones that are placed underneath it the hotter your food will get.

As revealed in the demonstration video below, its clear that everyone will now have the opportunity to sit around a table and talk about how much they miss their phone and how concerned they are they may be missing phone calls or emails.

The team at ChefSteps believes that chef Thomas Keller created the most visually appealing example of ratatouille ever when he concocted a recipe for the Pixar movie of the same name (seen above).

They recently paid homage to the “confit byaldi” style of the dish by producing a video recipe that utilizes the same flavors, ingredients and assembly as the movie version. Check it out below.

A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to bring a new product called “The Ultimate Cutting Board” into your kitchen. Rather than being a simple slab of wood to cut on, this handmade maple beauty adds a Swiss Army Knife quality with tools like a built-in citrus juicer, measuring cups, a grater and a storage drawer.

However, with all these bells and whistles you can expect to pay quite a bit more: $165 Canadian dollars (around $117 USD) to be exact. Despite this sticker shock, backers remain undeterred, as illustrated by the campaign completely destroying its goal.

Check out the product video below.

Their “99 Bottles of Craft Beer on the Wall” scratch-off chart allows you to “track your progress through a craftily curated checklist of brews” by rubbing off the gold foil of each type tried – sort of like a lottery ticket where everyone wins a tasty buzz.

AsapSCIENCE has taken to YouTube to ruin your enjoyment of soda for all time by showing how it would affect your brain and body if happened to be the only beverage you ever consumed.

If you prefer to live in ignorance, skip the video after the jump. The rest of us will be split between denial and sheer terror.
