This Mayan fudge temple was found in the basement of the Tate & Lyle Tasting House we’ve just completed – I love it so much wanted to make sure it had it’s very own blog post! Made by the modest genius that is Chris Verraes of Cake for Breakfast this temple was made using 3D plans provided by CyArk who are on a very important mission:
“Digitally Preserving and Sharing the World’s Cultural Heritage”
Best of all they provide open access to data created by laser scanning and HDR photography – do check our their valuable work.
Awesome isn’t it?
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.
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…
Based on various real Anatomical Veni, and the final addition to the Cake for Breakfast Chocolate Victorian Pharmacy, is this AMAZING creation from Chris. 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. A text book example of where confectionery becomes art, am not sure I could bear to eat her.
Cake for Breakfast have created this range of edible authentic Victorian pharmacy items for sale at Eat Your Heart Out. I adore the attention to detail in these plus I know all their chocolate tastes delicious. I have not seen anything like this before – a really unique take on our anatomical theme.
