I was asked by a journalist today what my favourite ever cake design was. You’d would think that this would be a difficult decision but it took me about 2 seconds. For the record it is this anatomically correct heart cake which has been grossing out the internet since 2003. Full instructions on how to make your own here…
The Cake Conjurer is another cake maker who has been kind enough to let us share some of their test run edibles / images for EYHO 2 – in this case pretzel intestines and body bag cakes. Will they make it onto your ‘must buy’ cake list…
PS: I know what you are thinking and I have already asked – the mini gurney was a birthday present.
Jenni from Two Little Cats Bakery very kindly said we could shared her concept images for ‘Riddled’ an STD inspired show piece wedding cake which will be at EYHO (she had us at painted chlamydia). To say we are excited by amazing ideas such as this is an understatement.
I’ve tried to vary textures/colours and balance out looking at individual cells and also the wider infection. Each tier/feature on this cake can be made into matching cupcakes. A HIV cupcake for example would have a domed top with the spikes, syphilis would have the spirals protruding etc… There’s two chocolate bars – coloured and swirled white chocolate which has been flavoured. Will add some freeze dried raspberries/million sweets for the really dark spots and to add a bit of texture! Top one is Trichomonas Vaginalis; and the second is Herpes Simplex 2.
There are a few more bits she is working on as well but they are being kept a secret… I am sure you can imagine!!!
