Dog Poop for Dessert Turns Out to Be a Big Hit

It might turn some stomachs, but a dessert-maker in Thailand has been flooded with orders ever since she started crafting gelatinous sweets into the shape - and color - of dog poop. Wilaiwan Mee-Nguen whips up the unusual confection made of coconut milk, gelatin and food coloring from the small kitchen in her Bangkok home. The 30-year-old office worker, who spends weekends working on her small side business, had experimented with a range of molds for her sugary treats before she struck gold several months ago. It all started when a customer requested an “unusual shape” and Wilaiwan decided to do something especially eye-catching. “They have mostly seen flower shapes, so this looks funny to Thai people,” she explained. Now the ‘dog poop’ desserts have become one of her most popular items, with the intrepid baker selling around 1,000 turd-shaped cakes a month for just under USD1 a pop.
