Educational or just gruesome?

They look like Halloween novelties, but these gruesome-looking baked goods are actually part of a public education project at St Bartholomews Pathology Museum.

Medical experts are hoping the anatomically-correct designs will raise awareness of various health problems.

The cake sale is accompanied by a series of pathology lectures examining the real-life conditions behind the cakes.
