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…

This cake makes me sick

9 Jan

Delighted to say I am currently speaking to Barbara Jo about the team working with her for EYHO 2011, and of course the edible autopsy. She just sent me the link for her melting death head cake. Excuse me whilst I am sick into a bin as this is awesome but too gory for me at the same time!!! Vagina cakes I can do, melting flesh not so much!

Bride of Zombiefest was also the perfect opportunity for me to make a cake that has been percolating in my head for a while now. The idea was a severed head cake, served up on a silver platter with an attractive array of garnishes, with flesh that would melt off over the course of the party, revealing the grinning skull underneath.

This is the last preview your having of MATP – not least as I have an exhibition to pull together in oh 2o hours! I think this piece is an AMAZING edible feat, and feel very lucky to have such great talent in the show. Hats off to David A Smith & Simon Smith for this beast:

Taking inspiration from animals of the FAIRground Carousel, artist David A. Smith and Chef Simon Smith create the captured bust of a Carousel Deer. Reflecting the use of David’s Deer forms, Simon’s exceptional talent brings the creature to life in the sweetest way possible using Tate & Lyle FAIRtrade sugar.
