Kerrang! Awards 2012

We were delighted to be asked to work with Torture Garden on the freaky food element of the Kerrang! Awards again this year – the theme was Tudor royalty / feasts and Natasha Collins nailed the ideas (as normal). Between rushing off to am emergency dentist (as soon as this post is written) and my killer hangover (only thing masking the main my tooth nerve is exposed OUCH) I shall keep this short and sweet (no pun intended).

Chicken Feet Cake Pops from Miss Insomnia Tulip – dressed with edible flowers

Chocolate Snails from Cakes for Breakfast

Chris (from Cakes fir Breakfast) also made some frog spawn – lemon jelly injected with chocolate served on wooden spoons

Natasha styled the snails with ‘soil’ and crystallised edible flowers

Natasha hand painted some fish cookies which where then nestled inside gold bread (I think she is addicted to gold food spray)

The Cake Conjurer made the ever awesome ‘cakes in eggs’ – this time dying the eggs green for an unsettling & rotten Tudor feel

Head of the roasted swan cake made by the Cake Conjurer – see dedicated post for more detail. Gave this to a friend to eat on the night (bet he didn’t)!

More of Natasha’s fish cookies – super tasty gingerbread base

Natasha also made larger fish cookies of ‘eaten’ fish nestled on edible flowers, salt (popping candy) and salad leaves (explaining why a few snails also crept in)

These freak me out – ‘Fingers’ from the Cake Conjurer

(shudder)

More of Natasha’s fish cookies in the light used for the event

Chicken Feet Cake Pops – Miss Insomnia Tulip (see separate post on these bad boys)

Boiled Chicken Feet – Extreme Cake Pops

I still can’t talk about the various projects we have on the go at the moment but I can share some of the incredible creations people are submitting to us daily such as the chocolate snails and new today these ‘Chicken Feet Pops’ from Miss Insomnia Tulip which are gross. Gross in the EYHO world meaning perfect.

The feet are made from vanilla & raspberry cake, triple dipped in white chocolate with the pop hand painted to resemble a boiled chicken foot; the chicken dipping sauce pop (top) covered with coloured piping gel; the battered chicken foot pop is covered with the dipping sauce and crushed citrus sprinkles to resemble batter. Ruddy amazing Yorkshire based baking talent and a really innovative cake pop design to boot. The latter is something which is getting rarer and rarer… See more on her Facebook or Flickr stream. Which variety are your favourite – I have to say for me it’s the battered boiled chicken foot all the way << something I will never say again.

Our team can make anything and make it brilliantly. What would you like to see at Eat Your Heart Out 2012: The Morgue Years – please do let us know!
