Feed the Beast: Eat your heart out 2013

Remember the beautiful unicorn cake at Baketopia a couple of weeks 
ago? This is his alter-ego,  'Hector the Hell Horse', by The Tattooed Bakers 
(made of red velvet cake!)
Last night I went to the launch of the grizzliest pop-up shop I've ever been to, Feed The Beast (Eat your heart out 2013) is a showcase of magnificent nightmare-inducing cake artistry - with some of the most incredible Halloween treats on sale; from eyeball cake pops, 'mouth of the kracken' cupcakes and tentacle flapjacks, to grimly realistic cakes depicting wounded and stitched flesh. The whole shop is beautifully curated in a museum-of-curiosity-meets bakery-of-the-damned fashion.

So, with a Kracken rum & coke in one hand and my camera in the other, I ventured in - here are just a few of the highlights...

'Lord Kronos' - by Cake Revolution
Eyeball cake pops by Caking It
Baby kracken eyeballs by Caking It
Unbelievably realistic looking cake take-aways, with some questionable
ingredients... by Caking It (with some of her vomit cupcakes on the left 

hand side...)
Incredibly gory wound cupcakes by Cake Revolution, I love the bloodied
gauze packaging.
