The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy

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 Skull – Ossuary of the Chapel of St.Michael

The Conjurer’s Kitchen is on fire at the moment, and I mean that in a good way rest so assured it’s not that her cakes are being burnt!!! Her vision enables her to revisit old classics such as the chocolate skulls and give them a unique never seen before twist. So looking forward to working with her throughout 2013, first up The Helpers DVD pop up on the 17th January where she will be creating something truly horrifying! Whilst it would seem obvious to create skulls inspired buy the Ossuary of the Chapel of St.Michael to my knowledge no one has thought of it before, and that’s what gives CK the edge. Plus of course her skill to execute it personally. You can buy a fully personalised skull on the EYHO shop here.

Fancy a Christmas dinner made from cake? We did! #impfringe

We were lucky enough to be asked to take part in the Imperial College ‘A Feast for the Sciences’ fringe event, alongside some really other inspirational science communicators. In a dream brief we were asked to create a full Christmas Dinner from cake, to support the other stands at the free event.

Join us on a festive journey through an emporium of edible sensations. Explore a fusion of food and drink, agriculture, medicine and more at this feast of hands-on research.

The Imperial Fringe is a series of monthly evening public events exploring the unexpected side of science. All events are free and open to all. Prepare to think in new dimensions as you join us on a voyage of discovery and debate, inspired by Imperial’s groundbreaking research.

Gravy was chocolate caramel sauce – true to the real deal lots of the marzipan peas fell in. Guests were doing some major dunking into this delicious gravy!!!

As you would expect in the real world all of the butter ‘knobs’ showed were at different stages of melting – love this kind of attention to detail

As I hope the pictures show, it was a great event packed full of people passionate about science communication, alongside those who were becoming passionate about the sciences due to the event.

The EYHO team creating the event was headed up by Annabel from Conjurer’s Kitchen (check out her detail on the turkey) with other members in support; Leshie Loves Cake making sprouts, Two Little Cats Bakery making pigs in blankets and Cake For Breakfast making some amazing edible candles which could be burnt AND eaten.

I adored this project so much and thanks to the team at Imperial for making it so easy for us. Next time we want to include sugar crafted candle sticks and glasses, sugar art paper hats and chocolate plates and cutlery. Maybe some of the PR agencies who turned down product support for this as they said it would look a bit shit (apparently you can’t make a cake that looks realistically like a turkey – erm you can see above) would like to make one 😉  Oooooo or maybe we need to do this in 100% chocolate – my mouth is watering (& thighs getting fatter) just thinking about it.
