So Feed The Beast 2013 is open and there are so many amazing cakes it would be impossible to fit them into just one post. Thought it would be a good place to start with the showstopper cake by The Tattooed Bakers (see bottom image) – a Devil Horse cake dripping in rum, literally. The […]

Chocolate Kitten Skull & Friends…

There are a lot of human chocolate skulls out there but I have not seen a solid chocolate kitten skull or crow before – this is why Conjurer’s Kitchen ROCKS! Truly amazing edible pieces and way past the point anyone could argue that these were not art. On sale in the EYHO Etsy store shortly. More pieces to come including conjoined skulls, a parrot and even a monkey

David Lynch Cake Pops

I commissioned these David Lynch cake pops from Miss Insomnia Tulip as a thank you to our Bastille client (non edible styling job – http://www.misscakehead.com). As always she manages to totally nail the brief in her own way – creating edible bites of pop culture in a way I have not seen anyone else do. What can I say, the girl is food artist to be reckoned with!

Buy them from our Etsy store here

Chocolate Skull – Ossuary of the Chapel of St.Michael

The Conjurer’s Kitchen is on fire at the moment, and I mean that in a good way rest so assured it’s not that her cakes are being burnt!!! Her vision enables her to revisit old classics such as the chocolate skulls and give them a unique never seen before twist. So looking forward to working with her throughout 2013, first up The Helpers DVD pop up on the 17th January where she will be creating something truly horrifying! Whilst it would seem obvious to create skulls inspired buy the Ossuary of the Chapel of St.Michael to my knowledge no one has thought of it before, and that’s what gives CK the edge. Plus of course her skill to execute it personally. You can buy a fully personalised skull on the EYHO shop here.

Fancy a Christmas dinner made from cake? We did! #impfringe

We were lucky enough to be asked to take part in the Imperial College ‘A Feast for the Sciences’ fringe event, alongside some really other inspirational science communicators. In a dream brief we were asked to create a full Christmas Dinner from cake, to support the other stands at the free event.

Join us on a festive journey through an emporium of edible sensations. Explore a fusion of food and drink, agriculture, medicine and more at this feast of hands-on research.

The Imperial Fringe is a series of monthly evening public events exploring the unexpected side of science. All events are free and open to all. Prepare to think in new dimensions as you join us on a voyage of discovery and debate, inspired by Imperial’s groundbreaking research.

As I hope the pictures show, it was a great event packed full of people passionate about science communication, alongside those who were becoming passionate about the sciences due to the event.

The EYHO team creating the event was headed up by Annabel from Conjurer’s Kitchen (check out her detail on the turkey) with other members in support; Leshie Loves Cake making sprouts, Two Little Cats Bakery making pigs in blankets and Cake For Breakfast making some amazing edible candles which could be burnt AND eaten.

I adored this project so much and thanks to the team at Imperial for making it so easy for us. Next time we want to include sugar crafted candle sticks and glasses, sugar art paper hats and chocolate plates and cutlery. Maybe some of the PR agencies who turned down product support for this as they said it would look a bit shit (apparently you can’t make a cake that looks realistically like a turkey – erm you can see above) would like to make one ;-)  Oooooo or maybe we need to do this in 100% chocolate – my mouth is watering (& thighs getting fatter) just thinking about it.

Chocolate Eel

This incredible 100% edible chocolate eel from Cakes For Breakfast is the latest addition to Chris’s series of astonishing chocolates which form part of “Robyn’s Chocolate Museum of Natural”. Other creatures created in chocolate for the series, or about to be, include the Great Crested Newt, earthworm, snails and even a slug.

These eels were to form one of  the main characters in an edible diorama mimicking their natural habitat, including a pond of course. It was made for the Experimental Food Society exhibition which was cancelled with very short notice by which time most things had already been made for it. I have seen sooooooo many incredible things from people who have had their time wasted by this I am going to try and share as many of the incredible creations which were lined up possible. This particular exhibit would have been accompanied by a museum shop, serving as a buffet…

3D Anatomical Heart Cookie (and more)

As many of you already know in response to popular demand there will be an Eat Your Heart Out pop up store in February this year on the 7th, 8th & 9th February, London (it’s actually the first event in a series which I will be doing with Emily Evans but more of that soon)…

This stage of any project is always really exciting so wanted to share some of the edible concepts we have had in so far. This 3D heart cookie from Made With Love By Me / Hannah Glennerster is one of them. It is a three-dimensional interactive maple syrup anatomical heart cookie which has been airbrushed, royal iced and hand-painted. The top cookie comes off to reveal the inner workings of the heart on the bottom cookie which is also a space where you can store a message for your loved one. I see this  piece as a romantic extreme fortune cookie!

 

 

And there’s more… Miss Insomnia Tulip has come up with this incredible Heart of Stone made from oreo fudge with sugar blood.

The big difference between this event and previous ones is that with Emily on board we’ll be branching out into craft, homewares and art for the first time so it’s a one stop shop for all those who are bored by the saccarine valentines offering and / or pink. We already have some amazing people on board some picks shown below.

Chocolate artist Cake for Breakfast will also be making anatomically correct heart lollipop and solid 100% anatomically correct sold chocolate hearts weighing in at 1lb. Awesome already right and this is just the start!

We’re still on the look out for new artists and bakers so drop me a line if interested – emmylou.cakehead@gmail.com

MAGGOT THERAPY ON A DIABETIC ULCER CUPCAKE

I am pretty sure these urgh but medically correct cupcakes from Sarah Hardy will be one of the top sellers at EYHO this year. Educational and gross it’s hard to think of a better Halloween cupcake, and besides spiders, witches, cats, pumpkins, ghost and all the other cake decorating cliches are banned!

Not for the feint hearted here is the image the original cupcake was based on. Enjoy your breakfast people!!!

Approx. 750g of white high quality chocolate; for sale as a set in a limited edition at Eat Your Heart Out 2012. Contact Cake for Breakfast to find our more or order directly.
