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!
I mean who does not want to feast on the (rum cake) corpse of a bloated, green and riddled with maggots Kraken… Hope a lot of you will be comming to see (and eat) the corpse at Feed The Beast next week!

Our latest project for The Kraken Rum, Proximo. Following on from this Feed The Beast shop opens next week and I can not wait!!! For now here are details of The Edible Autopsy which took place yesterday:
The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy
Feast On The Corpse of a Kraken 9 Miles Out to Sea
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).
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.

I commissioned these David Lynch cake pops from Miss Insomnia Tulip as a thank you to our Bastille client (non edible styling job – http://www.misscakehead.com). As always she manages to totally nail the brief in her own way – creating edible bites of pop culture in a way I have not seen anyone else do. What can I say, the girl is food artist to be reckoned with!
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.
Check out the anatomically correct detail on this incredible lung cake from Sarah Hardy – hard to get more anatomical than this beast. Available for pre-order, it’s £120, this large cake surely needs to be served at every client meeting this Halloween.
Call me strange as I love cakes, but am not a massive fan of icing, which makes this red blood cell red velvet treat on sale at Eat Your Heart Out by Denise Bakes Cakes my kind of cupcake.
It’s that time of year again – here is the official news on Feed The Beast, Eat Your Heart Out 2013, supported by The Kraken Rum:
‘Feed the Beast’ This Halloween with Miss Cakehead’s Extreme Pop Up Cake Shop
Interactive maggot extraction cupcakes & rum filled macabre liqueur chocolate hands tipped to be top sellers at
Eat Your Heart Out 2013
Eat Your Heart Out, the London based globally infamous Halloween pop up cake shop, is back for it’s third year and will be open from the 25th – 28th at The Rag Factory in Brick Lane. The edible art show and cake shop is entitled ‘Feed The Beast’ and is supported by The Kraken Rum. All the cakes have a beastly theme with the top sellers predicted to include vagina dentata cupcakes by The Tattooed Bakers, a ‘Wounds’ cupcake set by Cake Revolution (above) and interactive maggot extraction cupcakes by Twisted Fondant (shown below) which allow for mango flavoured maggots and puss to be removed prior to eating.
Incredible life-sized rum liqueur chocolate body parts are set to be another show (or appetite) stopper – disturbingly realistic they are created using casts of food artists Kate Haigh’s own hands and feet.
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.
