Fat & Furious

7 Jun

I love the fact that I am not the only person who gets lunchtime rage at sub-standard food, and I love it even more when others get so bored of crap lunches they start something as epic as Fat & Furious Burger. Of all their works of burger art this all white burger has to be my absolute favourite, not that it was easy to choose…

Fat & Furious is a self-initiated project born from the collision of two strong appetites. Thomas & Quentin (who founded the Graphic Design & Art Direction studio Furious) were so bored about random sandwich at lunchtime they decided to cook some crazy burgers in their little kitchen.  It soon became a ritual:  improvising and experimenting each week new ways  of cooking and representing a burger in very short lunch break. It takes about an hour and a half to find an idea, run to a supermarket to get everything, 
cook, take a shoot and eat. From week to week, they tried to re-invent some edible burgers,  despite their over the top made to be photographed nature. From tomato to tabbasco, from pepper to gold powder, from eggs to eggplants,  everything is good between two buns.

The end result go their project – and an amazing blog – is some amazing images and a book – now a life goal is to make my hangry moods as productive as Thomas & Quentin’s lunchtime boredom « Fat & Furious Burger »

Chocolate Museum Fossils & Incredible Edible Art

6 Jun

So excited to be blogging again (!!!) and what better way to start than by sharing the work of  an incredible food artist and fine artist Sarah Hardy. If I tell you she gained her skills in in wax-work museums, and as a internationally recognised fine artist, you can guess the quality of the edible fossil pieces Essex based Sarah accurately reproduces in the finest dark, milk & white Belgium Chocolate.

These incredible museum quality edible fossils are created with intricate casting and hand-painted detail – creating ultimate collectors items not novelty chocolate. With the largest fossil – the Megalodon Tooth – weighing in at 120g and a whopping 14cm long. 2 hours are spent hand finishing each one to the finest detail with a 11cm long T Rex Tooth and collectors box of 16 separate fossils also in the collection.

IT GETS EVEN BETTER…  Sarah has even created edible decapitated human heads from cake for international film companies and even a raw turkey cake which went on to be an online viral hit, food artist. Now she (& I) are dreaming of the day she gets to create a life sized T Rex Skull in chocolate.

A gallery of some more of her work is below – remember that all of the below are cakes or in the case of the anatomical heart chocolate…

Chocolate Heart From Police Suicide Victim

22 Nov

I have featured the work of Stephen Shanabrook on this blog a fair bit but this solid chocolate heart is one of the most disturbing pieces of his I have seen, in fact the most disturbing chocolate I will ever see.

What we know about this heart is that it belonged to a person who committed police suicide, this being where a person forces the police in a position to shoot them dead. The heart specimen had been kept by a pathologist since 1960. There is something about seeing the two bullet holes in the heart which sends shivers down my spine.

Edible Rings

The incredible EYHO baker Miss Insomnia Tulip created these 100% edible rings from for QVC (commissioned by Mischief PR). Bloody amazing aren’t they?

 

Getting our (Alice Cooper) freak on!

19 Jun

We’ve got about a week to go before the Alice Cooper freak show auditions where will be feeding the press & “interacting” (don’t ask). Delighted to say the awesome Thefty is working as an art director on the project alongside myself, and she’s even done a post with some great gory cake illustrations, and a good luck message to all the bakers (below).

We’re going for a Silent Hill theme with Mamma Jamma Cakes making a cake bust of THE infamous Silent Hill nurse as the centre piece cake, and lest we forget these amazing Silent Hill cake pops I have already shared. Guerilla Science will also be providing us with some brains! There is a lot more in the pipeline and whilst we like to keep a few secrets for the big day I can share below Helena’s rough concept diagram for the table.

I have even got stuck in and produced 2 Silent Hill cupcake stands for the table shown below. I have to say I am pretty pleased with it (and the Facebook group appear to like it too) considering I made it with some old bandages, chipped plates, fake blood, a bruise wheel and items from my kitchen cupboard for colouring (gravy / soya / tea / vinegar / beetroot / flour & water glue).

Solid Chocolate Human Skull – AMAZING

16 Jun

So I collected the long awaited solid chocolate human skull from the post office today and I have to say it is one of the most amazing edible structures I have ever seen (or am ever likely to see). A big claim but I stand by it as remember this is 100% solid edible delicious chocolate cast from a real human skull (you can see the detail in some of the c/u images which is staggering). It’s also made me so excited about the edible autopsy I am almost scared (massively glossing over the fact that writing up the latest version of the document made me physically gag). The solid chocolate human skeleton is going to blow everyone’s minds & having now got a skull I know that Marina Malvada of Chocolate Skulls is absolutely going to deliver the goods (not that I ever doubted it). Maybe I have become ‘desensitised’ but the fact you can see ever single detail of this persons skull (& even teeth) blows me away…
