The last images we can share of The Helpers project open to the public on the 18th January – this cake from Conjurer’s Kitchen is absolutely delicious but do you have the stomach to find that out for yourself. If not we may just have one going spare…
High concept art cocktail maker James Dance is also serving up his gross looking but tasty drinks including the ‘Vomit’ cocktail shown below. He will try and blame me at some point for his twisted creations but I can assure you they are ALL his idea. To be fair it is a perfect fit with some of the cakes on offer though – believe me when I say the cakes we have shared so far are relatively tame!
I mean who does not want to feast on the (rum cake) corpse of a bloated, green and riddled with maggots Kraken… Hope a lot of you will be comming to see (and eat) the corpse at Feed The Beast next week!

Our latest project for The Kraken Rum, Proximo. Following on from this Feed The Beast shop opens next week and I can not wait!!! For now here are details of The Edible Autopsy which took place yesterday:
The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy
Feast On The Corpse of a Kraken 9 Miles Out to Sea
24 days until Eat Your Heart Out 2013 – Feed The Beast supported by The Kraken Rum – and we already have a contender for the most disturbing cupcakes you’ll see all year. These maggot extraction beauties from Twisted Fondant are the only cupcakes I have seen to date which make me feel physically sick, destined to be a smash hit then especially as they come with tweezers, gloves and all you need to freak out your friends. They will be exclusively on sale at the THIRD (!!!) ever Eat Your Heart Out pop up cake shop to be held at The Rag Factory, just off Brick Lane, London. Oh and don’t forget before the cake shop there is also the incredible Edible Autopsy and pop up rum bar on the Redsand Forts (for invited guests only I am afraid).
On Friday 13th September a 30ft long tentacle was recovered from Port Meirion beach by an intrepid ‘Kraken Hunter’, and taken to The Kraken Rum tent at Festival No. 6 where it was served to hungry festival goers as means of disposal. This is the first time in living memory detailed examination of Kraken anatomy has taken place with food artists, The Tattooed Bakers, identifying the flesh as a rich spiced dark rum soaked fruit cake.
Wearing full protective clothing, the Kraken Hunter then proceeded to serve the remains to a hungry crowd who had witnessed the recovery of the tentacle earlier in the day. Legend has it eating the flesh of Kraken will leave those who consumed it with special powers and a distinguished taste in rum.
What is more further remains of the Kraken (a beast previously thought to be mythological) have been recovered by UK based ‘Kraken Hunters UK’, a The Kraken Rum supported organization only for the most brave and intrepid individuals. Large chunks of flesh, including an intact football sized eyeball, have been found in the Thames Estuary with an autopsy scheduled to find out more.

Delighted to say that the infamous Eat Your Heart Out pop up cake shop is back for 2013 – this year it’s supported by The Kraken Rum – and will be held in London from the 25th – 27th October 2013.
With a fearsome monster theme it’s entitiled ‘Feed The Beast In Your Belly’. Showstopper cakes guests will be invited to slice into include an lifesized bloated corpse of a drowned sailor, rotting giant squid tentacles and everyone’s favourite Halloween cake, severed limbs. The predicted top seller? Festering wound cupcakes will be this years STD cupcakes.

We have got some incredible macabre food art up our sleeves this year – bring it on!
Once again Miss Insomnia Tulip is an absolute genius. This would be hard enough on a cake but on Macarons… Go Lou we are so proud of you!

I know that every agency says they work with the best talent but when it comes to our edible installation work I am pretty darn sure we can’t be beaten – this incredible cake from core team memember Annabel de Vetten (of Conjurer’s Kitchen) a case in point as to the outstanding talent of our team.
Created for Birmingham’s Shock And Gore festival, this cake replicates Buffalo Bill’s female skin suit from The Silence of the Lambs. Just yet another example of this incredible food artist’s work who also created THAT Dexter cake for our Fox Entertainment client which trended on Twitter and was even shown to Michael C Hall himself on a US network chat show Jimmy Kimmel. Oh and in case you were wondering it’s vanilla cake, with dark chocolate ganache and black cherry filling.
This Mayan fudge temple was found in the basement of the Tate & Lyle Tasting House we’ve just completed – I love it so much wanted to make sure it had it’s very own blog post! Made by the modest genius that is Chris Verraes of Cake for Breakfast this temple was made using 3D plans provided by CyArk who are on a very important mission:
“Digitally Preserving and Sharing the World’s Cultural Heritage”
Best of all they provide open access to data created by laser scanning and HDR photography – do check our their valuable work.
Awesome isn’t it?
The EYHO gang are having so much fun working on a range of religious themed cakes and treats for Easter. As a creative food genius it is always no surprise Miss Insomnia Tulip was first out of the box with these pentagram hot cross buns – and yes they will be sold in our online shop.
There will also be plain ones for atheists and of course the pentagram one is multipurpose… Turn ii upside down and you can a satanic hot cross bun which also comes with a hint if chilli.
So the top seller in the Valentine’s Day anatomical pop up (aside from our under the counter v cakes) to date is this salted red caramel heart – yum! One day down, two to go!
I am also totally in love with this anatomical heart pinata kindly made for us by Kerry Hughes.
