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…

Bird Skeleton Cardigan

11 Dec

Knitted bird skeletons (!), and lace (!), in black (!) is almost too much for me to take, and as a bonus this to die for cardigan is affordable too. On sale at Dolls Kill which is a site I love despite the fact I am probably far too old for most of their clothes but sod it.

Too Fast Bird Skeleton Lace Front Cardigan is lace in the front with a party in back. Fool everyone into thinking you’re a fancy chick with the lace front, and then freak them out with the back. Bird skeletons and skulls hanging out on the back for an extra freaky detail. So rad. Cropped fit with buttons down the front. Ruffled bottom trim. Throw this on with a bodycon dress and finish the look with stacked rosary necklaces.

Anatomical Heart 3D Cookie

25 Nov

Starting to set up and plan for the Valentine’s Day anatomical heart pop up and you can read more here. This 3D heart cookie from Made With Love By Me / Hannah Glennerster is one of the items we will be selling. It is a three-dimensional interactive maple syrup anatomical heart cookie which has been airbrushed, royal iced and hand-painted. The top cookie comes off to reveal the inner workings of the heart on the bottom cookie which is also a space where you can store a message for your loved one. I see this piece as a romantic extreme fortune cookie!

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.

Anatomical Neck Tattoo

28 Jan

Lush neck anatomy tattoo taken from Atlas of Anatomy by Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery posted over at Street Anatomy.

Bennett Barch got this tattoo after spending years in medical school and residency, “I decided to get the tattoo as a symbol of the effort I put into my career.” I think I like the line version as much as the color. Well done!
The tattoo was done by Chicago-based tattoo artist, Scott Fricke.
