I have BIG things planned for Eat Your Heart Out mischief making this year (such as The Edible Autopsy) so thought it would be best to ease you into the year gently… I’ve been working with London Dungeon (and as always our much valued EYHO team member Nathan Pask took the photographs). Never let it be said I am not a romantic at heart!
In typical subversive style, London’s top scare attraction, The London Dungeon, is doling out cupcakes with a difference this Valentine’s Day (14th February 2011). Forget sugar candied heart shapes and pretty flowers, and think oozing, gruesome human hearts. The attraction is teaming up with the notorious Miss Cakehead, famed for the incomparable ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ cake shop, and inviting those who prefer their romance with a bit more bite to eat their hearts out. Couples visiting the dungeons on February 14th will be given a heart ventricle cupcake to eat amongst the horror of the attraction’s Blood & Guts exhibition; a recreation of a filthy makeshift operating theatre where a blundering butcher surgeon performs horrific blood soaked surgery in graphic detail (on even the most unwilling of patients)! So the big question is do you have the stomach to literally eat your loved one’s heart out?
I know I can stomach it (I’d do anything for love as Meatloaf says) but can you?..
Miss Cakehead have been gorrifying cakes for some time now and now, thanks to her, The London Dungeon can offer a hearty meal for those couples who shun the sentimentality of Valentine’s Day and are looking for something with a little more bite.
