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 […]

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.

Carbuncle Bars

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.

The Ultimate Skull Wedding Cake

I love that I get to work with people such as Anna – talking about their incredible work really is a joy. So anyway what follows is one of the most inventive wedding cakes I have ever seen – talk about love at first fright. Beautiful and classy but still different I think that without a shadow of doubt this will be the star of the show at an alternative wedding she is taking part this weekend.

Food artist Annabel de Vetten, also known as Conjurer’s Kitchen, created this incredible skull wedding cake for the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza in Birmingham this weekend. Her theme being ” ‘Til Death Do Us Part”.

It features solid chocolate skulls of 16 carrion crows, 12 domestic kittens, 3 Vervet monkeys, and 4 barn owls, all of which the artist sculpted by hand. Made from White Chocolate Mudcake, the cake took her over 100  hours to complete in total. There are two options of toppers: a chocolate conjoined kitten skull, or dried flowers from an actual wedding bouquet (ones shown here from her own).

You can find more out about her work at www.conjurerskitchen.com.

Anna also created the giant Easter Island Head cake for the Tate & Lyle tasting house projectclosing today.

The Helpers – Horror Movie Edible Installation

See a video on the behind the scenes of this project here.

So last night we opened The Helpers – a experiential experience serving cocktails and cake all themed around the movie of the same name – a stunt for Koch Media. The creations were incredible and (never thought I would say this) we pushed the limits so far we are all looking forward to some pretty cake projects for Valentine’s Day and beyond. You can see all the cakes over on Miss Cakehead’s Facebook page, and them featured on This Morning here. Just bear in mind they were for a horror film so they are made to the brief set by our client Koch Media. We have not just lost our minds and started making really dark cakes. In fact the chocolate gun was so disturbing and realistic we gave it as an extra present to someone who has always been massively supportive of our work (I had to get it out of there!). Huge thanks to Original Content London for creating an awesome and very disturbing set.

Hyper Realistic Solid Chocolate Baby Heads! MUST SEE!!!

One thing I am passionate about with this crazy Eat Your Heart Out business is to continue to push the limits of edible art – well get the cake makers to push the limits to be precise – and create things which have never been seen before. These incredible baby heads from Conjurer’s Kitchen a case in point. I also think it is this ethos which leads to the creation of viral marketing, PR & advertising stunts – such as the Resident Evil Human Butchery – when doing my proper job as a freelance creative director. 

A private commission (that’s all we can say), they are solid white chocolate baby heads, and the same size as the head of your average newborn baby. They also  TERRIFY me! As I was tweeting earlier there is something SO disturbing about these heads but I just can’t put my finger on it. Maybe it’s as they have no body, or maybe it’s just as they are a baby’s head?!? Either way I am so proud to be heading up a movement which leads to the creation of amazing edible works of art just like these.  We’ll be using them in a project very soon I am sure!!!
