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 […]

Chocolate Kitten Skull & Friends…

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

Chocolate Eel

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…

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.

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.

The Ultimate Skull Wedding Cake

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.

DSC_0057DSC_0035

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.
