Minions on the Loose

This page is where I get to highlight and celebrate the brave souls who have decided to not only undertake a recipe (or two) from this blog but share the result with us all.

Feeling brave? Want to join the legion?   Send me photos of what you’ve done and I’ll happily share it here!

November 2017: Man, if I thought I was proud of you all before…you guys blew me out of the water with your Facehuggers this Thanksgiving!

Here is just a SMALL sampling of what I’ve been sent so far:

Damn…this makes my dark little heart just glow with pride.  Nom fans are hands down the best fans in the universe.

October 2017: We survived Halloween and from the looks of the photos I’ve been tagged in and sent, you guys had a blast making some disgustingly delicious treats for your victims, er, I mean guests!

Let’s start with Michael Barrett who made the flayed flesh platter for his party and added a twist with a carrion seeking crow skeleton.  Mmm!

Next Jessica Kopp blew it out of the water with her skull cake.  It turned out incredible!

Speaking of incredible skull cakes, what about this one from Rebecca?!  Again…you guys are KILLING IT!  Literally.  No, seriously, this is all so amazing!

September 5, 2017 – Holy crap buckets, you guys!  You blew up my website this past weekend AND worked overtime making incredible stuff!

Let’s start with Dr. Pus (damn…that name) and his take on Brimstone Bread.  He posted this on the website (huge fan, btw) and it looks AMAZING!

The bread was a massive hit on Imgur and the resulting traffic to the Nom actually crashed us on Sunday night.  Well done, Dr. Pus!

Next up is the incredibly talented Lori from Castellon’s Kitchen…and if you haven’t been to her site yet, you’re missing out.  She made a batch of my brimstone bread (I’m seeing a theme here) and it turned out so well!

Speaking of how amazing her stuff is, keep your eyes peeled here for an upcoming recipe from her site.  I’m head over heels in love with her tortoured soul rolls!

And finally, I want to give a standing ovation to the mad genius that is snooz_anna and her take on the mossy skull cake.  I mean…just LOOK at it.

Aww, you guys make me so proud!

August 30, 2017 – Generally bad egg means something awful, but when it comes to Maggiesvinyard from Halloween Forum, these bad eggs are actually damn good.

August 4, 2017 – With an Instagram name like Gothhomesandgardens and a Facebook page AND website, you know Zel appreciates the darkly delicious!  Zel had an event coming up and knew Brimstone Bread was going to be on the menu.  With a little time in the kitchen and a copy of the recipe to follow, Zel whipped up a hot and tasty batch.

Mmm…it just LOOKS like it smells and tastes amazing.  The color balance between the blood red and the carbon black is absolutely spot on and those surface cracks are gorgeous!   Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait to see more photos!

Amanda V. fell in love with my Terror Misu but instead of following the recipe exactly, she took it as inspiration and ran with it!  Substituting milk chocolate for the white chocolate, she made an absolutely delicious looking skull spiked with cocoa powder and sea salt, creating a totally new and unique twist.  Beautifully done!  I’m both impressed and intrigued…and can’t wait to try her variation as well!


April 11, 2017 – It takes a very special person to look at my Death by Chocolate Cake and decide they want it for their birthday…it takes an even more amazing person to make that cake for the one they love.

Chiletso Maggie S. is just that sort of amazing person!  For her husband’s birthday she made him his very own Death by Chocolate Cake.


Cory M. found my page, fell in love with the Death by Chocolate cake and asked his mom for one…and she made it!  Major props for not only being a mom who delivers but one who delivers THREE CAKES this epically awesome!
