The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy

Feast On The Corpse of a Kraken 9 Miles Out to Sea

 The infamous Miss Cakehead has teamed up with THE KRAKEN RUM to create a POP UP RUM BAR and EDIBLE AUTOPSY in view of ABANDONDED MILITARY SEA FORTS

The Black Ink Society, a Kraken Rum supported research team, has recovered and secured the remains of a Kraken found off the North Kent coast. It has now been revealed that an autopsy on the remains took place aboard the Kraken Hunting sea vessel X-Pilot in view of Redsand Forts where the beast was found – 9 miles off the coast of Kent in the Thames estuary…

World’s Grimmest Cupcakes – DIY Maggot Extraction

24 days until Eat Your Heart Out 2013 – Feed The Beast supported by The Kraken Rum – and we already have a contender for the most disturbing cupcakes you’ll see all year. These maggot extraction beauties from Twisted Fondant are the only cupcakes I have seen to date which make me feel physically sick, destined to be a smash hit then especially as they come with tweezers, gloves and all you need to freak out your friends. They will be exclusively on sale at the THIRD (!!!) ever Eat Your Heart Out pop up cake shop to be held at The Rag Factory, just off Brick Lane, London. Oh and don’t forget before the cake shop there is also the incredible Edible Autopsy and pop up rum bar on the Redsand Forts (for invited guests only I am afraid).

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.

Eat Your Heart Out – Anatomical Cocktails

Eat Your Heart Out – Anatomical Cocktails

We are so excited at being able to have a bar in the Eat Your Heart Out space this year which leads me to this… A variety of disturbing medically inspired cocktails will be on sale at Miss Cakehead’s Eat Your Heart Out being held from the 26th – 29th October. Stool samples, stomach contents of a suicide victim and charred remains of a suicide bomber just some of the inspiration for the range of cocktails.

 The cocktails are being created by James Dance of Loading, a Falmouth based internet café and games arcade and go way beyond anything seen before.   For example the flavoured vodka in ‘Stomach Contents’ hasn’t been skimmed to purposefully ensure it will visibly contain the perfect teenage diet of chocolate pieces and skittles, the drink garnished with empty pill casings. A shot of absinthe on the top will be reflective of the green hue of stomach bile.

Cocktail inspired by the stomach contents of a teenage suicide victim

Charred Remains was inspired by the remains of a suicide bomber

Other drinks on the menu include:

‘Charred Remains’  made from vodka and Jack Daniels with a crispy meat garnish. The ‘Stool Sample’ being a creamy drink with cocoa, strawberry syrup & fudge pieces used to give the medically correct consistency of a sample. ‘Fat’ will come with a solid fatty layer on top made from white chocolate melted and reset to create the effect and the ingredients of the ‘Sanitizer’ cocktail are designed to cleanse your palette. Finally the ‘Urine’ cocktail (below middle) will come in a sample bottle, and is also offered warm for those who are after an even more authentic experience and can stomach the added reality.

Stool Sample – press will able to sample this cocktail in advance at the launch for Resident Evil 6

Spanning over 3 days from 26-28th October the cake shop will sell ONLY 100% anatomically or scientifically correct educational treats in a nod to it’s location at St Bart’s Pathology Museum in London. Alongside Miss Cakehead the museum’s, Carla Valentine, will be curating the cakes on sale drawing on her years of experience working in morgues, preserving anatomical human specimens and running the Shoreditch based Clandestine Cake Club to help deliver the world’s most unique cake shop, and an innovative form of science communication.

Urine Sample (can also be served warm)

Commenting on the collaboration with Miss Cakehead James comments:

“For Eat Your Heart Out the real challenge was to try and make some drink that worked with the anatomical nature of the event, focusing on bodily fluids being too limiting. Instead I took a crime scene body outline as inspiration and tried to cover every area of the body. Of course cocktails such as the ‘Stool Sample’ and ‘Urine’ were so obvious I could not resist including them. As with the cakes each drink will be disgusting to look they will all taste amazing, horror being in peoples minds and the connections they make.” 

The solid layer of ‘lard’ on top of this creamy cocktail is actually melted then set white chocolate

Brilliantly the contents of the Sanitiser are designed to clense your pallet

Gross Fungus Toe Nail Cookies

Normally Natasha makes stunning hand painted wedding cakes and cookies, including gingerbread houses which Selfridges sold last Christmas. But when Nevie Pie Cakes goes feral (normally my fault to be fair) she really goes for it. Check out these cookies which she will be selling at EYHO and make me feel sick. It’s the more subtle treats which always have that effect on me and I honestly don’t know how she managed not to throw up looking at the reference image for these!  Before I get the blame the gross level of these cookies was entirely her idea.
