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?


Edible Make Up

5 Apr

Chocolatier Christophe Roussel has created this gorgeous 100% edible chocolate make up palette << now this is what I am talking about when it comes to realistic looking food design. The lipstick is white chocolate, the cream tube contains a light chocolate soy milk the eyeshadow crunchy praline and so on… (via The Trendy Girl)

I dearly wish this also worked as make up!

Of course it would have been rude not to look around the site a lot more and there are some INCREDIBLE looking towering creations on there including neon coloured macarons. DROOLING…

Philadelphia Cadbury Flavour

I find this a bit odd on many levels – not least as Kraft have spent so many year promoting the healthy aspect of the brand to suddenly go the chocolate route. I know it will only be 86 calories per scrape but still… (read more)



Sweetly Demented

How could I resist such a sweet email – I also really like them, very original (for once).

Hello, I just started a confectionary line called Sweetly Demented, ranging from the morbid, shabby chi, & sometimes just plain rude. I would appreciate any reviews, comments or critiques that you have.

Grandpa - love how this is is topped with one of her Grandpa's paintings

Chocolate Wonderland

4 Jan

ARGH we were close to doing this last year but the potential sponsor said it would not get enough coverage for them – it’s gone global so that’s not annoying at all.

A new theme park made entirely of chocolate has just opened in China’s Shanghai on Friday.

According to Reuters, everything on display was made from chocolate, including a replica of ancient China’s famous Terracotta Warriors and the traditional Chinese symbol of the dragon.

Organisers say that the choice of delectable items on display was made based on an effort to unite the East and the West.

Shanghai’s World Chocolate Wonderland welcomed visitors through its doors on Friday (December 16), into a theme park of lifelike chocolate exhibits. Read more of this story (which of course wont get any coverage – sorry it’s bugging me!) over at Sky News, and see a gallery over at The Telegraph.


Zombie Head Bon Bons (cherry brains)

13 Nov

Oh yes Think Geek does it again! They also sell this Zombie Jerky (it’s green) and this ridiculous (yet awesome) garden zombie sculpture.



An undead delight for survivors only

It’s simply ghastly, you know, our town being overrun by these walking dead. But it was quite fortunate to find such suitable refuge in this confectionery shop. While young Timothy stands vigil in the upper window, you and I may eat our most ironic and delicious creations. Braaaiiiins, indeed! Quite good, I say. Quite good.

Chocolate Zombie Head Bon Bons arrive in a stylish candy box, suitable for gifting to your favorite guy or ghoul.Each box contains six bon bons in rich dark chocolate. Bite into one and taste the sweet cherry cordial-style brains, but be careful! Eating brains is addicting and you may find yourself at the business end of a shotgun. Munch responsibly.
