I have featured the work of Stephen Shanabrook on this blog a fair bit but this solid chocolate heart is one of the most disturbing pieces of his I have seen, in fact the most disturbing chocolate I will ever see.
What we know about this heart is that it belonged to a person who committed police suicide, this being where a person forces the police in a position to shoot them dead. The heart specimen had been kept by a pathologist since 1960. There is something about seeing the two bullet holes in the heart which sends shivers down my spine.
The incredible EYHO baker Miss Insomnia Tulip created these 100% edible rings from for QVC (commissioned by Mischief PR). Bloody amazing aren’t they?
Love these – thanks to @izzi01 for tweeting me the link.
I find this a bit odd on many levels – not least as Kraft have spent so many year promoting the healthy aspect of the brand to suddenly go the chocolate route. I know it will only be 86 calories per scrape but still… (read more)
How could I resist such a sweet email – I also really like them, very original (for once).
Hello, I just started a confectionary line called Sweetly Demented, ranging from the morbid, shabby chi, & sometimes just plain rude. I would appreciate any reviews, comments or critiques that you have.
Grandpa - love how this is is topped with one of her Grandpa's paintings
This chocolate crab cake is amazing – discovered here:
ARGH we were close to doing this last year but the potential sponsor said it would not get enough coverage for them – it’s gone global so that’s not annoying at all.
A new theme park made entirely of chocolate has just opened in China’s Shanghai on Friday.
According to Reuters, everything on display was made from chocolate, including a replica of ancient China’s famous Terracotta Warriors and the traditional Chinese symbol of the dragon.
Organisers say that the choice of delectable items on display was made based on an effort to unite the East and the West.
Shanghai’s World Chocolate Wonderland welcomed visitors through its doors on Friday (December 16), into a theme park of lifelike chocolate exhibits. Read more of this story (which of course wont get any coverage – sorry it’s bugging me!) over at Sky News, and see a gallery over at The Telegraph.
Oh yes Think Geek does it again! They also sell this Zombie Jerky (it’s green) and this ridiculous (yet awesome) garden zombie sculpture.
An undead delight for survivors only
It’s simply ghastly, you know, our town being overrun by these walking dead. But it was quite fortunate to find such suitable refuge in this confectionery shop. While young Timothy stands vigil in the upper window, you and I may eat our most ironic and delicious creations. Braaaiiiins, indeed! Quite good, I say. Quite good.
Chocolate Zombie Head Bon Bons arrive in a stylish candy box, suitable for gifting to your favorite guy or ghoul.Each box contains six bon bons in rich dark chocolate. Bite into one and taste the sweet cherry cordial-style brains, but be careful! Eating brains is addicting and you may find yourself at the business end of a shotgun. Munch responsibly.
These choctastic photographs created using a very old technique more commonly used in the confection of chocolate-coat cakes; objects were deep frozen then sprayed with hot melted chocolate using an airbrush. The combination of distinguishable classic technology designs, and a smooth chocolate finish, is such a winner. Now I’d LOVE to see if you could create the ultimate christmas chocolate tree like this too (makes mental note to mention to Sam Bompas for some playtime), read more here.
