So the top seller in the Valentine’s Day anatomical pop up (aside from our under the counter v cakes) to date is this salted red caramel heart – yum! One day down, two to go!
I am also totally in love with this anatomical heart pinata kindly made for us by Kerry Hughes.
The anatomical pop up – presented in conjunction with Anatomical Snuffbox – is almost here and the products on offer (both edible and non edible) are looking AMAZING. Sorry for the short post but as you can imagine it is a bit manic at the moment… For now you can preview some of the products on sale here.
We are based at Top Office Machines, 133 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG. Facebook event page here.
Also in the space is Cryptofloricon from Ed Saperia and Original Content London. Basically imagine a steam punk Victorian inspired florist that sells bouquets of flowers with hidden meaning. Those meanings uncoded on the brand’s website. A MUST SEE!
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!
Truth is there are so many amazing anatomical heart offerings but I don’t have time to share them all right now, but whatever your taste there is sure to be something here for you… All the details you need to know are below:
So last night we opened The Helpers – a experiential experience serving cocktails and cake all themed around the movie of the same name – a stunt for Koch Media. The creations were incredible and (never thought I would say this) we pushed the limits so far we are all looking forward to some pretty cake projects for Valentine’s Day and beyond. You can see all the cakes over on Miss Cakehead’s Facebook page, and them featured on This Morning here. Just bear in mind they were for a horror film so they are made to the brief set by our client Koch Media. We have not just lost our minds and started making really dark cakes. In fact the chocolate gun was so disturbing and realistic we gave it as an extra present to someone who has always been massively supportive of our work (I had to get it out of there!). Huge thanks to Original Content London for creating an awesome and very disturbing set.
Another preview of the pieces Miss Insomnia Tulip will be selling at the anatomical heart pop up (see previous post). It’s very rare to find someone who consistently comes up with so many totally unique concepts, will someone hurry up and give her a book deal!
And there you have it – yet more proof that the Valentine’s Day pop up for EYHO will be a million miles away from traditional ‘romantic’ cupcakes. In fact I am thinking of banning pink, just how we ban spiders, witches, hats, broomsticks etc from the normal EYHO Halloween events. These incredible cupcakes are from new EYHOer Kay Gajra. Having had my heart ripped out and stomped on more times that I can remember (hence the Love Will Tear Us Apart tattoo) these have really struck a chord with me. Also I love the idea of using strong graphics as ‘romantic’ cupcake toppers not fluffy traditional Valentine’s Day nonsense!
We are pleased to be working with London Dungeons who we LOVE on a great project :-)
In typical subversive style, London’s top scare attraction, The London Dungeon, is doling out cupcakes with a difference this Valentine’s Day (14th February 2011). Forget sugar candied heart shapes and pretty flowers, and think oozing, gruesome human hearts. The attraction is teaming up with the notorious Miss Cakehead, famed for the incomparable ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ cake shop, and inviting those who prefer their romance with a bit more bite to eat their hearts out. The first 100 couples to turn up will be treated to the revolting, yet tasty treat from one of the attractions most gory scene!
I know I can stomach it (I’d do anything for love as Meatloaf says) but can you?..
