No need to rub your eyes or refresh your screen. Yes, this really is a Burt Reynolds Éclair and it may be the beginning of a whole new department here at the Geyser of Awesome. Let’s call it “Things that can’t be unseen, but might also be delicious.”
This hirsute dessert, modeled after Burt Reynolds' iconic 1972 nude Cosmopolitan centerfold, was created by Leeds, England-based bakery Lou Lou P’s Delights (previously featured here) in honour of Movember UK. Burt’s bearskin rug has been replaced by a chocolate eclair and we’re pretty sure that Burt himself is edible too. Considering that Mr. Reynolds has long been considered a mustachioed icon of masculinity, we think this unsettling pastry is a pretty amazing and apposite Movember creation.
This is so wonderfully over the top and back around again!
