It’s nearly Halloween! Celebrations are well under way as a few of my friends are dressing up for some parties this weekend. Just a couple of days ago, I was invited to Creepycakes event organised by Google+ Local. The event was described as ‘spooky high tea with a halloween twist‘.
As I love to bake, I was very excited to see what was in store for us. In my head, I envisaged spiders, pumpkins, witches hats… but when we got to Google Headquarters, the first thing I saw was ‘smoked cigarettes’ in an ashtray. They looked so real but I had a bite and it was actually cake!
Miss Cakehead was the brains behind the horrifying treats presented to us. It was a sneak preview to EAT YOUR HEART OUT – which is happening this weekend October 26-28th at St Bart’s Pathology Museum.
What followed were tastings of these ‘bad-taste cakes’ and we were in awe of the variety of gruesome baking.
It was a great evening where we devoured ‘phlegm’ (aka clotted cream) and ‘scab’ scones and even a ‘brain’ made out of marshmallow.
For those who are looking for some inspiration this halloween weekend, why not pop down to EAT YOUR HEART OUT and check out these amazing baked goods… You might not be able to differentiate between the real and the imitation! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
