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!
I am pretty sure these urgh but medically correct cupcakes from Sarah Hardy will be one of the top sellers at EYHO this year. Educational and gross it’s hard to think of a better Halloween cupcake, and besides spiders, witches, cats, pumpkins, ghost and all the other cake decorating cliches are banned!
Not for the feint hearted here is the image the original cupcake was based on. Enjoy your breakfast people!!!

Lip cupcakes are far too pretty for #EYHO which is why Tattoo Cakes have a added a cold sore detail!
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.

Nicola Shipley of Tattoo Cakes has created EYHO this incredible set of 12 cupcakes, each with a hand painted topper inspired by vintage medical illustrations. Perfectly at home in the pathology museum then, and yep of course they will be on sale. Still working out if to sell in boxes of 12, 6 (two whole sets) or individually. What do you think?

These Mole cupcakes, by Tattoo Cakes, will come with a leaflet highlighting the dangers of skin cancer and what symptoms to look out for on yourselves and others. The moles which are dangerous – and should be seen by a medical professional – will be in red cupcake cases to really hit the point home. Edible science communication is the way forward and if these cause just one person to seek medical advice in time for treatment then these have got to be some of the best cupcakes ever right?
