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…

Derelict Love Hotels

12 Apr

OK I admit it – I missing being an active blogger so Cakehead Loves Evil is back if that is OK with everyone? Oh I will also be sharing a lot via the Miss Cakehead Facebook page. In brief I realized the other day that with over 5 million views I must have been doing something right with this blogging lark so I should really carry on. Hope this makes you happy, I am actually rather excited.

As some of you may remember I am openly obsessed with the creative randomness of Japanese Love Hotels ever since reading this book. I should add for clarity not the sex side but the what the hell was the designer thinking, and how the hell do you get off on that wondering side.

With a whopping 500 million visits a year, love hotels – establishments that offer couples a private, short-stay location in which they can indulge in the pleasures of the flesh – are a booming business in Japan. Indeed, it’s been estimated that 1.4 million Japanese people, or 2% of the country’s population, visit a love hotel each day.

Having been fascinated with them for years – and it being hard to find out as much as I would like to know online – there has not been much fresh content to blog on a Love Hotel theme for a year or so now (for the record Gang Snowman is still my favorite). But that has changed with the discovery of a rich seam of abandoned love hotel images online – still not as scary as the derelict Mr Blobby Land photography though. Nothing will ever be that scary.
