It's been over a year since Breaking Bad rode off into the New Mexico sunset, and yet we're still having a hard time letting Heisenberg go. Clearly so is "Walter Wheat", a BB fan with culinary chops who's about to drop a parody cookbook titled, of course, Baking Bad.

As you can see from this promo video, the man made sure to incorporate Walt and Jesse's signature Blue Sky with some rock candy-studded cupcakes. But he's also got treats like "Heisen(Batten) Burg Cake" (a sponge cake), "Tighty Whitey Bites" (coconut bars?), and "Box-Cutter Donuts" (Boston creams with sugar glass? We hope??) on deck. While there's a suspicious lack of breakfast foods from that lineup, it sounds pretty promising, particularly if you're the type of person who prefers to bake in a gas mask. Make sure to snap up a copy come October 28th -- just don't let your DEA brother-in-law get wise.
