I have been asked a LOT to do a book on vagina cakes so thought I might as well just go for it – as publishers are too pussy I have decided to fund it myself – I say myself… Crowd sourced funding – buy the book for a bargain £10 and help me make this happen. Have 28 days to go!
I have always said how amazing Jimmy Jane are this PR stunt outside a Babeland sex shop confirms this. For one day a ice cream van will played host to someone in an anatomically correct vagina costume selling you ice cream with an additional option of chocolate body paint on top. Winning!
Maybe my mind is in the gutter 99.9% of the time but I have to say using a “Mister Softee” van is also inspired :-D (thanks to @greekstreet for the tip).
(ok I am picky but I just wish they had a better picture than this rubbish one)
UPDATE: Here is a video of the cake table at Kerrang. I say ‘video’ I took a roaming view of the table (& yes that music was on all night – it sent me slightly crazy)!
So last night Cakehead Loves were asked to do a cake installation at the Kerrang awards by Torture Garden, the production company running the reception (more on the other installations in another post). We also had to walk about the tables in the award ceremony giving the artists vagina cakes and other treats such as a Molly Bakes “shit on a stick” like… Half Penny Home also made the bunting you can see… Alix Fox was my partner in crime for this section and we were dressed in amazing burlesque clown costumes from Prangsta with corsets, frilly pants and candy floss wigs. People such as @seansmithsucks (in the Blackout) were loving the Vagina cakes (as well as the frilly pants) made by Black Cherry Bakery and giving them some serious Twitter loving tweeting pictures such as below. Alice Cooper declined one as he is on a diet ;-)
It was such a FUN night but to be honest I have felt better so I will keep it brief and share these images of our sweet table – designed by Natasha of Nevie Pie Cakes fame, with an astonishing Clown Cake from Mamma Jamma Cakes (formerly Chic Cakes) – with a longer post coming soon.
The concept was to design the table to look like “the morning after” with edible cigarette drinks (astonishingly crafted by Nevie Pie), half ‘spilt’ wine, cheese (marzipan) on sticks that look as if it had been half bitten, Molly Bakes cake pops that look like sausages lying in pools of jelly… I am waaaaaaaaaay to hung over to do this justice as we partied hard afterwards (well we had frilly pant on) so I am going to leave you with you these pictures whilst I crawl into a hole and die until this hangover goes.
Who could forget Holly Andrews AMAZING and VERY rude cupcakes? Well here are Blow job cupcakes II – made by (I need to check first if I can name them), following the original design from Holly.
Changing perception about the female body around the world through art; that’s the idea behind this amazing exhibition currently on in Brighton. British artist Jamie McCartney has created a monumental wall sculpture showing women’s most private parts. The nine metre long polyptych consists of four hundred plaster casts of vulvas, all of them unique, which has been arranged into ten large panels.
The age range of the women is from 18 to 76, including mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women, as well as a woman pre- and post natal. Described as ‘the Vagina Monologues of sculpture’, this piece is intended to change the lives of women for good: ‘I realised that many women suffer anxiety about their genitals and I was in a unique position to do something about that’. Half a decade since its humble beginnings, the exhibtion is still a success.
