I have masses of affection for the whole team at Ministry of Stories / Hoxton Street Monster Supplies and I’ve been lucky enough to work with them on creating terrifying food for their events. My top pick? It has to be the bogey cupcake display I created below (Crumbs and Doilies made the cupcakes and even the insides were a horrid bogey grey colour).
Ministry of Stories really are brilliant, championing such an important cause in an massively unique way:
We are an organisation dedicated to the creation of stories by a new storytelling generation. Fire your imagination, have a look around and get involved.
Products in their store, Hoxton Street Monster Supplies, fill me with joy and I have a massive crush on their Minister for Fluency too. These are super clever witty products that equally engage with adults and children, a darn hard thing to do. The latest addition being these tears…
Salt Made From Tears combines centuries-old craft with the freshest human tears which are gently boiled, released into shallow crystallisation tanks, then harvested by hand and finally rinsed in brine. Experience the full range of these flavours in this exclusive collection.

Ministry of Stories was inspired by the US based 826 Valencia in San Francisco.
Similarly they have a range of stores which help raise funds and sell an equally inspiring range of products including The Pirate Supply Store and my favourite Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. As a creative these products massively inspire me and I’d love to be able to buy every single one of them. A few top picks pasted below:
