This fucked up Silent Hill, with a great pair of cake tits on her, is 100% edible and from the uber talented Mamma Jamma Cakes. This cake was created in response to the Silent Hill brief I issued for a desert table commission (see press release at the end of this post which also shares a little more information about how this cake was made). This cake will be getting eaten at the Alice Cooper freak show installation this coming Monday. As I have said a LOT this is one of the best cakes I have ever seen in terms of a perfect response to a brief – eat your heart out Ace of Cakes!

An Edible Horror Show in Hyde Park
Delicious ‘shattered glass’, ‘barbed wire’ and ‘pus covered bloody bandages’ to be consumed at the Alice Cooper freak show audition.
Curator of cake & chaos, Miss Cakehead, is set to create one of her scariest edible experiences to date with an installation based on the Silent Hill video game that also inspired a 2006 horror film of the same name.
Following the hit of the ‘Morning After’ table at the Kerrang Awards, Cakehead Loves was asked to produce a ‘disturbing’ edible experience at the Alice Cooper Freak Show auditions at Hyde Park this Monday 27th June. The backdrop to her piece referencing lyrics of the Alice Cooper Hit ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’ with the lyrics “I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing ‘Til they got a hold of me” written on newspaper in blood, referencing a similar scene in the Silent Hill video game.
Surgical cloth, shattered edible ‘glass’, gruesome cakes & an amazing 100% edible sculpture of the Silent Hill ‘Nurse’ are amongst the goodies which will feature nestled amongst edible barbed wire and anatomical heart cakes displayed on cake stands covered with blood stained bandages.
The centre piece Silent Hill Nurse cake is made form a total of 6 stacked chocolate cakes and 100% edible apart from a wooden pole used for support. The head was wrapped in individually rolled and textured bandages which were then pressed and molded into it to give an appearance of decaying, rotting bandages and flesh.
Laura Edwards of Mamma Jamma Cakes who made the cake commented:
“With Silent Hill being the theme, and the nurse being such an iconic figure from the game and film, she really had to be the centre piece really should be the nurse which I wanted to create as a 100% edible bust.
Other Gruesome edibles include Gash Wound Cupcakes from The Butcher of Caker Street (delicious vanilla cupcakes topped with open flesh wounds, ripped stitches and clotting blood) & a solid chocolate skull cast from a real human example by Canadian food artist Marina Maldava.
Devon based caked maker Kiss & Bake up has provided jumbo badass sculpted chocolate cake pops featuring some of Silent Hill’s most prominent characters such as Pyramid Head & the Mannequin. Cupcake obsessed Anne Murphy of I Heart Cupcakes has provided red velvet cupcakes with white icing splashed with blood cupcakes whilst artist ‘Thefty’, AKA Helena Maratheftis acted as an art director for the project. Guerilla Science have also contributed some of their infamous panacotta brains.
Paradoxically the next event from Miss Cakehead – Cakey Perry (www.cakeyperry.com) – could not be further away from this concept. A selection of cakes and other treats being served at a Katy Perry inspired high tea.
