We're all too familiar with that sense of satisfaction we feel after watching one of Dr. Sandra Lee aka Dr. Pimple Popper's videos. There's simply no match for that odd feeling of relief and contentment after viewing a gruesome extraction of puss.
...Unless we incorporate cupcakes into the process.
The brilliant artists from Blessed By Baking in California have bestowed upon us pimple cupcakes.
Hey, if we love watching the removal of oozing cysts, zits, and blackheads, why not add sugar? The top of the cupcakes are a light brown color and have a red / pink frosting surrounding the gross protrusion.
And, of course, the center of the 'pimple' is filled with 'puss' made from custard or lemon curd. Mmm.
Dr. Pimple Popper herself shared a photo and video of the cupcakes... And it gets grosser.
Oh yes, the pimples pop. You can squeeze out the lemon curd puss. "How can something so pus-like taste so good?!?! Pimple cupcakes by the amazing @blessedbybaking," Dr. Lee captioned the photo.
The video of the actual popping of the cupcake pimple has received over a million views on Instagram... which is about the average number of views for Dr. Lee's regular extraction videos.
The video has also been a success on Facebook, racking up over 15,000 shares.
We're feeling very conflicted... These are disturbingly gross, but we also want to buy a dozen or three.
Just try bringing a batch of these into the break room at work.
The Internet seems to be feeling a similar tension.
It's a brilliant idea, really. It combines all our guilty pleasures.
But, if you don't have the stomach for pimple cupcakes, here's a picture of Blessed By Baking's more 'normal' creations. You're welcome.
