Religious Themed Edgy Easter Baking

The EYHO gang are having so much fun working on a range of religious themed cakes and treats for Easter. As a creative food genius it is always no surprise Miss Insomnia Tulip was first out of the box with these pentagram hot cross buns – and yes they will be sold in our online shop.

There will also be plain ones for atheists and of course the pentagram one is multipurpose… Turn ii upside down and you can a satanic hot cross bun which also comes with a hint if chilli.

Serotonin Salted Caramels

I know we have the anatomical pop up this week but before we focus on hearts on for a week I wanted to share these fairly moving (in an odd way) Serotonin Salted Caramels from Miss Insomnia Tulip – who is a truly unique food artist and one of a kind. Lots more coming on The Depressed Cake Shop in a few weeks…

Chocolate gets right to the heart of sexual pleasure by increasing the brain’s level of serotonin, the feel-good brain chemical. Serotonin plays a major role in positive mood, emotional health, proper sleep and balanced appetite, contributing to numerous behavioral and physiological functions. Decreased serotonin is a well-known factor in cases of depression. Increased brain serotonin promoted by chocolate increases sexual excitation, desire and responsiveness.

A ‘Common Pathologies of the Breast’ Cupcake

As we’ve said all along this year’s Eat Your Heart Out is not about ‘gore’ it’s about using extreme cakes to communicate messages based around Pathology – hence our location in the St Bart’s Pathology Museum and Carla Valentine co-curating the shop with me. Miss Insomnia Tulip has nailed it with this ‘Common Breast Pathologies’ cupcake, I genuinely feel this has taught me something. Lots of gold stars for her!!!
