Open Wound Store

Man I LOVE this poster from an amazing specialist open wound store Open Wound FX. Beyond obsessed with their wound stockings too (they will be mine!!!). Via Gorgeous & Gory who do a yearly ridiculously brilliant Zombie pin up calendar.

Louis Vuitton Waffles

Oh hello – love how much this Louis Vuitton waffle maker from American artist Andrew Lewicki take the piss out of the most horrid of all handbag designs (via The Trendy Girl). Head to Gizmodo to read more – they are as upset as I am that this is not a ‘real’ product.

Anatomical Ball Gowns

Yes I know these dresses from Shih Chien University are fairy old now (in internet terms they are ancient) but they have aged well. Stunning & first shown as part of an ‘Artificial Beauty’event…

Anatomically Correct Thorax Cake

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…

Tasty intestines & body bag cakes…

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.

Painted Chlamydia

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!!!

Pathology Cake Shop Sections

We are beyond excited at all the cake ideas coming in so far for EYHO 2 – there are still a few questions the cake makers are having on the brief though so we wanted to break it down a little more for you…. In short the cake shop is going to be broken into five main areas:
Metabolism = Liver, Spleen, Kidneys, Genito-Urinary, Gastro-Intestinal Tract, Endocrine glands
Cardiorespiratory = Heart, Lungs, Blood Vessels, Blood
Brain and Behaviour = Brain, Central Nervous System, Nerves, eye, ear
Locomotor = Limbs, Bones, Joints, Skin
Human Development = Obstetrics & Gynae, Breast, Male and Female reproduction, STD’s etc
Hope this helps and does not make you even more confused!

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

 

Not only are sardines super gross in real life but I would happily swap meatballs for rain right now… This movie was 3D in cinemas so you got to experience dodging giant food.  What is there not to love?

Anyone for placenta cake?

Anyone fancy a slice – read more about this pretty real looking (I checked it’s not) placenta cake here. Bonus points for use of candy rope ‘thing’ as an umbilical cord.

 

Neuromuscular Junction Cookies

Just found these amazing cookies demonstrating Neuromuscular Junction (let’s pretend I know what that is). They were made by  a (then) 16 year old called  Chelsea Ann Coconut (please let that be her real name), and found via Not So Humble Pie.

I just finished a week of work experience with a neurosurgeon! It was absolutely amazing and to say thanks, I made these cookies. I’m a bit proud :)

Hope that provides some inspiration for EYHO 2 boys & girls!
