Interior designer Tanya Nisa’s baking skills have sadly not gone down well with everyone.

That’s because the mum-of-four from Lincoln doesn’t bake your average cakes, her sweet treats all resemble parts of the human body.

Her creations mean you could be chomping down on a Victoria sponge that looks like severed fingers, feet, or arms.

The 42-year-old has spent the past seven years perfecting her craft of gory cakes after being inspired by the film Hannibal.

Yet the realistic cakes that seep fake blood have scared more than a few online.

Some have branded her a cannibal for the life-like creations, but Tanya has hit back at them saying they’re just cakes.

But all of this reaction is a testament to her skills as a master baker.

‘After watching Hannibal, I decided I wanted to start baking gory cakes and see how real I could make them,’ she said.

‘It’s completely different to your every day pretty looking cakes. It freaks my kids out.

‘Even I can get a bit scared looking at them because my creations end up looking so life-like.

‘But I just have to cut into them to prove it’s a cake. People’s reactions are hilarious – they either hate them and don’t believe it’s a cake or love it.

‘Some people have even called me a cannibal.’

Tanya revealed that her four daughters hate the cakes and that the severed fingers especially have to be hidden away as they gross them out too much.

Her creations can take anything from a few hours to days to finish, depending on the intricacy of her design. The most recent set of fingers involved creating a skin-like tone with some bone showing, one finger had a wedding ring splattered in blood.

She even created a bloodied belly button – complete with a silver piercing.

‘I got requests from friends to make gory cakes and decided to make both a severed foot and arm,’ added Tanya.

‘I study the human body and use colours that are skin-like – then I add fine details in which can takes hours to correct. I use images of veins on Google to make sure I’m getting the exact likeness.

‘The most extreme gory cake was a severed head. I used a Madeira cake then covered it in fondant and gum paste, it was all completely hand painted.

‘The blood is jam and fondant is used to create the blades.

‘I only bake at birthdays and all of the gory creations are just a hobby of mine, it’s not a business.’
