The wonderful Andrew Williams (previously at Britsh Baker Magazine) and I are launching a spanking new baking PUBLICATION (not a blog) and want to get it started with a massive dose of brilliance (even if we say so ourselves).
Miss Cakehead and Cakey Muto present Beaten & Creamed: The Cake Shop Quiz
Put your regular pub quiz and its sandsack of prizes on hold for one week, because East London’s Cakey Muto will play host to a unique Cake Shop Quiz at 8pm, Thursday, 7 June 2012. Organised by Miss Cakehead on behalf of Beaten & Creamed – the spanking new baking publication that is coming soon – the event will dish up a selection of delicious treats as well as test your tastebuds and knowledge of baking.
The Golden Afternoon Tea Company will be channeling inspiration for each table from the frankly amazing after party table Miss Cakehead & Nevie Pie produced for The Kerrang! Awards so of course they’ll also be more than your standard beer mat on the table.
Exciting prizes will be on offer and all entrants will be treated to a fabulous Cakey Muto cupcake.
Entry is £2, with maximum teams of four, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Venue: Cakey Muto, 25 Chatsworth Road, London E5 0LH

Today the doors will swing open on what has been billed as possibly London’s Toughest Hotel experience as “Hotel Alcatraz” arrives in Kings Cross, London. The opening of “Hotel Alcatraz” coincides with the launch of J.J. Abrams’ new drama series, Alcatraz (see above), which starts on UKTV’s entertainment channel Watch from today (Tuesday 13 March 2012) at 9.00pm.
As a freelance creative I get to work on some really cool projects, in this case working on the creation of a rather awesome hotel for the lovely Hope & Glory PR and their client Watch / UKTV. The installation built by the unbeatable production team at Helix 3D, it may all look grotty and old but it’s brand new and made to look like that so it recreates the experience.
Watch has created the experience to enable fans of the show to get a better understanding of the lives of prisoners and to bring the show’s characters to life in present-day London.
In order to promote the TV show of the same name an EXACT replica of four cells from Alcatraz was recreated in Kings Cross Field Street, which has now opened as a hotel offering people the chance to stay overnight for free during it’s test opening which is this week only. If you fancy a unique night in London, and the chance to watch a pretty awesome TV show from you cell (a prisoner reward for good behavior) then head to Late Rooms from 1200 today to book your room.
Could not more be looking forward to the David Shrigley Brain Activity show at the Hayward Gallery – some of the images below taken from the show’s website. He is such a lovely man too who was beyond generous with his time for The Futureheads, FH10 project to raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice. For a bargain £50 (+ £7.50 50% postage cost to celebrate this show) a limited edition 1/100 Shrigley print could be yours. Only a few left so get a move on if you fancy one! Anyway check out his Hayward show below = I can not wait!
In 2012 our overpriced rail fares have been hiked again. Our trains are already the most expensive in Europe. In three years time ticket prices will be 24% more expensive than now, yet passengers continue to be stuck with overcrowded, unreliable trains, with less staff on trains and less staff at stations. This Government is taking us further and further away from the value for money train service we all need.
You’ve already seen the Skype cakes so now time for my favourite cake of all from the Poke 10 project – Spot the Bull, inspired by the website of the same name. All baking from Nevie-Pie who says I wasn’t “too bossy”.
An entire table was covered in cake with grid letters placed around the edge, much as you would expect from a spot the ball page in a newspaper (delicious rum soaked chocolate cake with crushed oreo cookie dirt and green iced grass). Three toy bulls were hidden in the cake with the lucky party goers getting a bull in their slice winning one of three prizes (bull horns, fake flies or cow pat chocolates).
On top of the amazing cake were some incredibly realistic cookie mushrooms (with popping candy hidden inside), a cow pat (my idea) and a very cute rabbit cookie (Natasha’s idea). When NP wasn’t looking I then also added some fake flies to the cowpat cookie and mushroom. Finally the cake was cut into grids so the square of cake to be eaten could be chosen specifically, and guests did not have to eat the next slice in so to speak.
In case you missed it here is Deadmau5 in London, and some top architectural mapping, all brought you to by the lovely people with eye wateringly large marketing & ad budgets (jealous) at Nokia.
Really liking the new collection from We Are Handsome, especially the Benton / Fenton dress (on the right) as I am calling it.
No idea what the Benton / Fenton thing is – then here you go. I have no idea why millions, including myself, are finding it funny we just are!
I AM FURIOUS. These fucking rioting scumbags are going to cost me a nights sleep I am going to be productive. Fed up of fake pictures, tweeets and propaganda being spread on Twitter scaring everyone including me… Anyhow got a lovely email from @evidencematters who has got baking and @made_with_pink has her spoons ready with @mscupcakeuk already spreading the love in Brixton earlier today. Here is a lovely email from Evidence Matters…
I’ve so far baked
1 banana cake
3 lemon drizzle cakes
2 honey cakes
I’m checking through my inventory and planning more. It seems facile but it feels that people are disproportionately cheered by cake in difficult circumstances.
She is spot on – cake makes people feel better and we need to spread the love via Peace of Cake (I love a good pun). I’ll work out how tomorrow (I always manage to think of something) but if we can just make one person, or business, effected by today’s events feel better & that people care, or show thanks to those who went beyond the call of duty to help, then it’s worth it. The amazing women who gave the speech to the looters at Hackney can have all the cake in the world as far as I am concerned… (watch on twitter)
I can’t just watch this unfold around me (sofa against the front door / letter box taped up for example as I live on a high street) and let these little fuckers win… Peace of cake, let’s spread the love not the hate (yes I am at that stage of drunkenness & the gin starting to kick in).
Please leave comments or head to Cakehead Loves Facebook page and do so there (have made the security settings so anyone can post links)…
And if everyone RT’s this as much as they did with the fake army tweet which scared the shit out of me (sorry about that again) then we are sorted. We CAN make a POSITIVE difference and are not powerless to let these people ruin our beautiful city.
Love & light xxx
PS: is it really bad to shotgun any fireman action so early?..
