Pinterest is best known for its beautiful images. The social-media site is basically a one-question test: What is most aesthetically pleasing to the eye? Winners will get the clicks, repins, and likes.

There are fabulous fashions, glittering jewels, scenic vistas, and lavish rooms. But what about the food?

Well, not all food images are created equal. What makes one person salivate, can make others feel slightly queasy. Here at Health.com we tend to like our salads and superfoods, yes, but we're no purists.

Who doesn't appreciate a tasty slice of pie or chocolate-covered anything?

But then there are those boards plastered with deep-fried, butter-filled, cheese-stuffed diet wreckers. Here are some of fattiest foods we found this week. So go ahead and pin, if you must, but try to avoid actually eating this stuff!

Triple-Stuffed Pie-Cake
Apparently it goes by the name of a Cherpumple. Not only can we not pronounce it, we're not sure how one would even eat this! You're looking at a cherry pie baked into a chocolate cake, apple pie in a yellow cake, and pumpkin pie in a spice cake, all covered in frosting.

Just look at the buttery grease these bites are sitting in!
