It’s time to think about Valentine’s Day (yes I know already) and I am delighted to say that I will be creating the world’s first florist selling only black flowers for my client The Kraken Rum. Here’s what you need to know:

In a world first, a FLORIST SELLING FLOWERS AS DARK AS THE KRAKEN’S INK, pops up in London this Valentine’s Day. Macabre bouquets are arranged in GRAVE VASES and come with a bottle of THE KRAKEN RUM in place of the traditional champagne option. There is even a choice of 2 messages, ‘TAKE ME WHOLE‘ or ‘SWALLOW ME PIECE BY PIECE’, with lyrics taken from The Kraken Rum Sea Shanty recorded by Ross Millard of The Futureheads.

The pop-up florist forms part of The Kraken Rum’s KRAKEN VERSUS CUPID campaign, by macabre and infamous Miss Cakehead.  Found in Kingley Court, just off Carnaby Street…

Meet Devil Horse – The Ultimate Halloween Cake

BITgnaXAY2SK6FtA15B-HmVnRYLVAeiGrgPVUkSZbNU-1

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 beast had Kraken Rum pouring from it’s nose into a font which was surrounded by skulls. It was cut open by the mighty Kraken Hunter and guests at the opening party were invited to help themselves to it’s red velvet cake insides, and those who wanted a top up could simply place their glass under the stream for supply of The Kraken Rum. It took Eddie & Rich over 200 hours to complete, shown in the stunning attention to detail.

Beetle & WILDE – Deadly Design

An abosolutely key part of The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy event last week were Beetle & WILDE who are incredibly stylish macabre interior stylists and whose work I much share with you all. They created stunning sets on both the X-Pilot and in the local pub, Yes the Black Ink Society was in fact the Old House At Home, a Queenbrough local pub, with the Beetle & Wilde touch.

Best of all they are also have an awesome shop so you can also by some of the pieces the incredible Caz has sourced in her carefully curated online store. I was blown away with their attention to detail as was everyone on the trip. She has sold a taxidermy fox and a skeleton before we even left the location and has been comissioned to course other items including a stuffed pike (don’t ask)!

Away from the project their items they source for customers, sell in their shop, and use in their designs are equally as stunning.

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).

Anyone with a love of extreme cakes will not be disappointed with the large ‘Mouth of Kraken’ creation (below) by Heartache Cakes for it comes with almost 100 individual hand made chocolate teeth and a terrifying sense of foreboding destined to set even the most gore hardened cake lovers on edge.

If you find cakes replicating giant bloody eyeballs of mythical beasts, chocolate skulls and rocky road topped with stitched detail (shown below) too much for you then The Kraken Rum will also be available in the space to steady the nerves – the dark spiced rum also being used in many of the treats on sale ensuring they make look disturbing but will always taste delicious.

The pop up cake shop follows an exclusive invite only The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy event held nine miles off the coast of Kent on The Redsand Forts (shown below). In additional to a pop up rum bar on board the forts, invited guests will witness an autopsy on the corpse of a Kraken, feast on its flesh and drink fluid (a delicious cocktail) drained from the dead beast.  What remains of the corpse will then be displayed at the Feed The Beast pop up cake shop along with images and video taken of the process. Shoppers should be warned that a few weeks on from the official autopsy they should expect the corpse to be bloated, green and maggot riddled.

30ft Kraken Rum Cake Tentacle

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.
