Feed The Beast opens in a matter of days so we are getting more and more images of the finished cakes which will go on sale. The big news is that thanks to The Tattooed Bakers vagina dentata cupcakes will be on sale again for the first time since 2010. Costing £3.50 each I predict they will be one of our biggest sellers. Needless to say if you want one of these beasts on your Halloween table you need to get there early!
The strap line for these cakes: “As friendly as a bulldog and as much fun to kiss”
Want to come along to Eat Your Heart Out to buy these and other lots of other macabre treats then all the details you need are below.
Feed The Beast is open from Friday 25th – Sunday 26th October from 11.30 – 18.30 each day. No tickets are required and it’s free entry, although due to some of the cakes on sale it is an 18+ event. It can be found at The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage St, London, E1 5LJ.
Oh and just in case you have not seen the horror movie Teeth!
A week to the opening – who else is as excited as me!
It’s that time of year again – here is the official news on Feed The Beast, Eat Your Heart Out 2013, supported by The Kraken Rum:
‘Feed the Beast’ This Halloween with Miss Cakehead’s Extreme Pop Up Cake Shop
Interactive maggot extraction cupcakes & rum filled macabre liqueur chocolate hands tipped to be top sellers at
Eat Your Heart Out 2013
Eat Your Heart Out, the London based globally infamous Halloween pop up cake shop, is back for it’s third year and will be open from the 25th – 28th at The Rag Factory in Brick Lane. The edible art show and cake shop is entitled ‘Feed The Beast’ and is supported by The Kraken Rum. All the cakes have a beastly theme with the top sellers predicted to include vagina dentata cupcakes by The Tattooed Bakers, a ‘Wounds’ cupcake set by Cake Revolution (above) and interactive maggot extraction cupcakes by Twisted Fondant (shown below) which allow for mango flavoured maggots and puss to be removed prior to eating.
Incredible life-sized rum liqueur chocolate body parts are set to be another show (or appetite) stopper – disturbingly realistic they are created using casts of food artists Kate Haigh’s own hands and feet.
Anyone with a love of extreme cakes will not be disappointed with the large ‘Mouth of Kraken’ creation (below) by Heartache Cakes for it comes with almost 100 individual hand made chocolate teeth and a terrifying sense of foreboding destined to set even the most gore hardened cake lovers on edge. Mouth of Kraken cupcakes have also been created for for those only able to deal with less toothy sweet creations.
If you find cakes replicating giant bloody eyeballs of mythical beasts, chocolate skulls and rocky road topped with stitched detail (shown below) too much for you then The Kraken Rum will also be available in the space to steady the nerves – the dark spiced rum also being used in many of the treats on sale ensuring they make look disturbing but will always taste delicious.
The pop up cake shop follows an exclusive invite only The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy event held nine miles off the coast of Kent on The Redsand Forts (shown below). In additional to a pop up rum bar on board the forts, invited guests will witness an autopsy on the corpse of a Kraken, feast on its flesh and drink fluid (a delicious cocktail) drained from the dead beast. What remains of the corpse will then be displayed at the Feed The Beast pop up cake shop along with images and video taken of the process. Shoppers should be warned that a few weeks on from the official autopsy they should expect the corpse to be bloated, green and maggot riddled.

Absolute genius from the woman who bought you STD cupcakes – Jenni Powell of Two Little Cats Bakery. Available on the shop very very soon.
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!
This bouquet can be decoded to read “Go & Die In a Hole”
PS: Don’t forget we are selling vagina cupcakes under the counter!
In response to popular demand we have decided to sell a few vagina cupcakes ‘under the counter’ at the anatomical heart pop up this week – there were SOOOOOO many of you would wanted to give them to your loved ones we gave in to the pressure!!! From Mrs Lovett’s Kitchen (aka a cake maker who is not putting their name to these beasts) there is something about these which makes me feel particularly icky – I think it is the crusty look of them….
Anyway moving swiftly on the pop up shop is open this Friday – Sunday and sells a range of anatomical heart gifts and sweet treats, the full gallery of which can be seen over at Anatomical Snuffbox. 11-6 Friday to Sunday at Top Office Machines, 133 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG. We’ll also be sharing the space with an amazing pop up flower shop which is selling bouquets of flowers which contain coded messages.
I commissioned these David Lynch cake pops from Miss Insomnia Tulip as a thank you to our Bastille client (non edible styling job – http://www.misscakehead.com). As always she manages to totally nail the brief in her own way – creating edible bites of pop culture in a way I have not seen anyone else do. What can I say, the girl is food artist to be reckoned with!
