Sure, bacon is considered "meat candy," we're all comfortable with that, but Austrian artist and photographer Jasmin Schuller has taken the "meat as sweets" concept one step farther -- waaaaay farther.
Using ingredients such as meat scraps, blood, raw meat, and a bucket of animal grease, Schuller, for her series called "Sweet Meat," painstakingly created desserts that may look delectable, but aren't at all what they seem.
For example, the ice-cream sundae (above) is made from various minced meats, then covered in grease cream and topped with a "cherry" carved from a pig's heart. The syrup is blood.
