This Kreemart edible installation at the MoCA is f*cking incredible. As a direct result of seeing this I have also decided that I need more half naked men in my cake projects ;-) From what I can gather the cake was made by Rosebud Cakes – some of their creations are very ‘vision quest’ in design. An interesting note from my point of view is that I love how they cheated with the head and used a purposefully crap looking dummy rather than make one. It’s always the head that makes ‘human’ cakes look a bit shit & fake so this is an inspired solution. It’s almost as good at the Chocolate Grace Jones.
All of Kreemart’s stuff is incredible and when I grow up I want to be just like them. Look at the below, it’s on a totally different level.
PS: Deborah Harry is so awesome it’s ridiculous…

Hello I’m back!!!
One of the reasons I took a break from blogging was I had lots of work on, so posting about one of those very projects which took me away from the site in the first place seems a great place to kick things off again…
Essentially I was briefed directly by Capcom to come up with a concept to launch Resident Evil 6 in the UK and the ‘Human Butchery’ was born. I looked after the creative execution & event planning, working with PR agency Full Fat in executing the PR side of the campaign. What I love about being a freelance creative director is you get to do some really really great things, and despite not being a fan of meat (bleargh) I loved every second of it. If I only did campaigns for clients about things I loved then my work would be limited to…

Right now I am exhausted for all sorts of reasons I wont bore you with but so stunned by these BUILD YOUR OWN SKELETON MACARONS from Miss Insomnia Tulip I had to post right now. Best of all they even glow in the dark. She truly has REALLY changed the way macarons will be seen. Lest we forget her anatomical series of macarons too! I am so proud to be able to support her all I can.
Tasha Marks from Animal Mineral Vegetable has created this gorgeous tasting blood orange marmalade with vein detail AKA ‘Blood Sample’ which will be on sale at #EYHO. She’s also working on some other innovative products such as make your own DNA Strand and a unique variation on smelling salts but more of that soon…
Call me strange as I love cakes, but am not a massive fan of icing, which makes this red blood cell red velvet treat on sale at Eat Your Heart Out by Denise Bakes Cakes my kind of cupcake.
So Twitter user @feralfanny is our latest EYHO baker – also a well known and published professional cake maker their true identity is to remain a closely hidden secret. However their treats can be shared…. check out these GROSS infected eye ball cupcakes, and old man’s nose cakes which they will be selling at the shop.
Cake for Breakfast have created this range of edible authentic Victorian pharmacy items for sale at Eat Your Heart Out. I adore the attention to detail in these plus I know all their chocolate tastes delicious. I have not seen anything like this before – a really unique take on our anatomical theme.
Carbuncle Bars sound utterly delicious >> all butter Shortbread topped with Clotted Cream Fudge, finished with chocolate, maltesers and jelly sweets. From the one and only Miss Insomnia Tulip. So good I don’t care if we get sued by *the brand that shall not be named*.
Now for the educational part:
A carbuncle an abscess larger than a boil, usually with one or more openings draining pus onto the skin. It is usually caused by bacterial infection, most commonly Staphylococcus aureus. The infection is contagious and may spread to other areas of the body or other people.
Sounds delicious and looks even better. Not!!!
Now I am never going to forget what a carbuncle is after seeing these images are you? A gross way to prove the educational point of Eat Your Heart Out. Now if you excuse me I need to be sick.
