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.

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
