Lily Vanilli is much more than a baker; she’s a cake sculpturer. Her unique creative flare has seen her evolve from graphic design to a creator of cupcake decadence. One of her greatest talents is the ability to concoct delicious recipes; another is her ability to keep them secret.
She revels in aesthetic paradox and therefore delights in presenting her sugary sweet flavours in macabre and often grotesque shapes.
It all began as a hobby in her Hackney kitchen, but before long her delicious cakes were soon on the lips of London’s fashion elite. She has created a gothic wedding cake for Pearl Lowe, a birthday cake for Victoria Beckham and she counts Heidi Klum as just one of the many avid fans of her cupcakes.
Amazing synth design porn here – Australian designer Dan McPharlin creates these miniature retro synthesizer models from paper and cardboard. He also did the cover for Jean Jaques Perry and Luke Viberts collaborative LP (thanks @themonsterist) – you can buy it here.
Oh I really really want one! Check out the minature papaer synthesizer stream over on Flickr.

Good work from Boing Boing who have not only created a brain out of a watermelon, but posted instructions on how you can make your own too.
I am not sure what I make of these Michael Jackson cross stich patterns – torn between love and hate… If you love them then download yours here.
I have fallen for this Baby Jaba made out of felted wool by Kit Lane.
Custard made this last night for Dastardly & Custard – it really is a creative solution with a small budget. I would like it all the more without the irony that my mac is currently being held together by one gnome, two cat chews and some folded up paper.
This is super clever… A range of uber cool craft sets from i artist London that allow you to recreate the works of some awesome artists. Check this out!!!
For the Love of God is an amazing piece by Damien Hirst that consists of a platinum cast of a human skull encrusted with 8.601 diamonds including a massive pear- shaped one on the forehead. It cost 14 million pounds to produce. This is the ultimate contemporary piece of art that everyone wants to display in their home.
Now, with IHIRST you will be able to create your very own replica. We have included a real size plastic skull and and all the crystals you need to create your copy (Yes! Each one of the 8.601 crystals at an incredible price!). Even the glue and the tweezers are included; patience is the only thing you need. It´s a challenge!! You can even customize your design by adding crystals with different colours if you prefer. Choose your tools. With IHIRST you can create an entirely new design or stick to the original one. Enjoy a piece of art that´s as entirely individual as you are yourself.
CONTENTS: PLASTIC HUMAN SIZE SKULL, CRYSTAL BEADS (8,601 PIECES), GLUE, PAINTBRUSH, TWEEZERS, SILVER PAINT, INSTRUCTIONS.
(Let me say that I do not even have the staying power to watch a film so as far as this goes there is nooooooooo way.)
I adore these delicate knitted organs from artist Sarah Illienburger.
