Delighted to say I am currently speaking to Barbara Jo about the team working with her for EYHO 2011, and of course the edible autopsy. She just sent me the link for her melting death head cake. Excuse me whilst I am sick into a bin as this is awesome but too gory for me at the same time!!! Vagina cakes I can do, melting flesh not so much!
Bride of Zombiefest was also the perfect opportunity for me to make a cake that has been percolating in my head for a while now. The idea was a severed head cake, served up on a silver platter with an attractive array of garnishes, with flesh that would melt off over the course of the party, revealing the grinning skull underneath.
We were taken Zombie hunting tonight near Milton Keynes to celebrate the launch of Resident Evil Afterlife 3D – see above! I am a little sleepy, and confused still. so more on this to come along with some proper images… Here’s some for now though that I wanted to share before I hit my bed for the inevitable nightmares!!!
Monika Tichacek has literally sewn together two of pop-culture’s biggest trends – fantasy horror creatures and reality dancing programs – and has created a monster. Her morbidly beautiful photographs are simultaneously entrancing and repulsive. Zombies tango dancing, kissing corpses, bejewlled rotting carcasses… We wince, we want to look away, but we can’t.
Zombie roadkill badger CAKE – with glowing eyes from Louise at Love to Cake. One of my two chosen window display cakes for Eat Your Heart Out & the PRETOX Potion:
Apologies for lack of posts today it’s been the gory cake madness of the Eat Your Heart Out & PRETOX Potion shoot today – here are some of the images I have been ‘tweeting’ throughout the day. Wait until you see the proper ones – the work of Nathan Pask blew me away today! OMG as for the last supper – though I got *freaked out* seeing a very dear friend with a noose around their next looped over a beam. More of that to come…
Well these really are remarkable – a collection of frankly messed up 1970′s illustrations, for CHILDREN’s books, done by artist Gōjin Ishihara (via Pink Tentacle).
