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!
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
PS: We love people sharing our stuff and hate watermarking images – if you are going to share these (and please do) then photo credit to Conjurer’s Kitchen is required.
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.
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.
