Remember Miss Cakehead’s gory, anatomical sweetmeats? Well, she’s back, with desserts that will turn a few eyes…and stomaches. Besweetened body parts and hunks of Kraken will go on sale at the Feed The Beast extreme cake shop, opening this week. Highlights include rocky road cake topped with poorly stitched wounds, an edible severed hand, and a maggot-riddled cupcake. In a teuthic twist, this year’s cake shop includes severed body parts from a confectioned Kraken, which was ceremoniously dissected on a boat in the Estuary last week (see pics).
The pop-up cake shop appears for three days at the Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage Street from 25 October. Wash down your gory treat with an inky cocktail from Kraken Rum. Entrance is free, and you just have to turn up (though we anticipate a bit of a queue).
