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.

World’s Grimmest Cupcakes – DIY Maggot Extraction

24 days until Eat Your Heart Out 2013 – Feed The Beast supported by The Kraken Rum – and we already have a contender for the most disturbing cupcakes you’ll see all year. These maggot extraction beauties from Twisted Fondant are the only cupcakes I have seen to date which make me feel physically sick, destined to be a smash hit then especially as they come with tweezers, gloves and all you need to freak out your friends. 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. Mouth of Kraken cupcakes have also been created for for those only able to deal with less toothy sweet creations.

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.

We’re pretty confident in laying down the gauntlet and saying that these will be the best liqueur chocolates you will ever see, plus of course being made with a dark spiced rum means they taste amazing.

Amazing cake from Claire Ratcliffe – what I really like is whilst the subject matter is gross it also really shows off her piping skills at the same time!

There are no words to describe how much I loved working on this amazing Dexter Series 8 project, and what an honour to help launch the final ever series of something I am a HUGE fan of. Needless to say Annabel nailed the Dexter cake she was asked to make for the project – her talent astonishes me.

Here’s the press release:
