Throb – anatomical heart gifts for Valentine’s Day

Very excited to share more information about the anatomical heart pop up in London for Valentine’s Day. Indicative of the way Eat Your Heart out has become a cultural leader, the shop is 60% gifts and art 40% cakes and chocolate treats. It’s being run under the guise of Anatomical Snuff Box, a venture from myself and Emily Evans promoting the education of anatomy using cultural channels. You can see all of the gifts here (more being added daily). The wonderful Kraken Rum are also supporting the event so expect lots of free rum shots and rum soaked cakes – if you have not tried this amazing drink yet here is your chance.

So if I had to pick my predicted ‘top sellers’ it would be the amazing crochet hearts from Kate Jenkins who is an INCREDIBLE textile artist. I have been a fan of hers for years so it’s really humbling she know thinks enough of ‘Miss Cakehead’ to create some bespoke pieces for our shop. Kate has also produced a range of tea towels and cards featuring the pieces so her work is affordable for all.

There’s also this cocktail sharer from Bespoke Barware which I predict will be a top seller for them all year round. I will most certainly be buying one for starters!

ANATOMICAL HEART POP UP SET TO HIT LONDON

46456_128629107294895_1673293110_n

Between the 8th – 10th February 2013 a secret location in East London will be playing host to romantic pop up with a twist; every single one of the gifts, cards or edible treats on sale will be based on an anatomically correct heart. It is a venture from Miss Cakehead & Medical Illustrator Emily Evans who have teamed up to create Anatomical Snuffbox, an outfit with sole aim of promoting and producing anatomy led cultural events. The anatomical hearts on sale have been sourced from the finest arts, crafts and cake makers from both from the UK and further afield, many of who have been commissioned to create unique pieces for the project. Expect to see anatomical heart inspired pieces in the form of jewelry, art prints, cards, embroidery, ceramics and of course cake and chocolate.

As with any Miss Cakehead event you should expect the unexpected and a solid chocolate human heart, cast from the victim of a police suicide victim, by artist Stephen Shanabrook, is also on sale. The piece clearly showing the entry and exit bullet holes of the bullet.

Miss Cakehead says: It’s my passion to give people something new and fresh to buy and I am really looking forward to being able to expand my curating into gifts and art. To be honest if I could have my way I would have banned anything pink and ‘heart’ shaped but I wasn’t allowed.

Emily says: As an anatomist, nothing brings me greater pleasure than getting others enthusiastic about anatomy. Valentines day can be a daunting prospect, so I’d like to think this event celebrating the human heart will offer alternative anatomical treats for the one you love (be that someone else or just yourself!).

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.

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