We've told you about Miss Cakehead's Eat Your Heart Out pop-up cake shop coming up in London. We've seen corpse body parts made of chocolate and cupcakes with edible maggots. In the latest stunt to promote the event, the "Black Ink Society" conducted an autopsy of a Kraken! We've got plenty of pictures of the event, which was held shipboard off the coast of Kent on Thursday.
Several parts of the Kraken were brought on board the ship for further investigation which included a giant eye (white chocolate eye filled with Kraken Rum), Kraken cysts (black pickled onions), eye pupils (black eggs), black sticky stomach contents (liquorice and black treacle), an entire kraken mouth (Kraken Rum cake) with over 200 teeth (made from white chocolate) and the remains of a human skull intertwined with juvenile kraken tentacles (Kraken Rum cake). Washed down with a delicious mixture of rum tots and grey and murky Kraken pus (white chocolate hard shake). The flesh of the kraken is said to have mysterious properties so valuable it must be consumed.
The public will get a chance to feast on the remains of the Kraken at the 2013 Eat Your Heart Out event, titled "Feed the Beast."
Visitors will see the remains of the Kraken corpse and be able to feast on its putrid maggot riddled flesh (Kraken rum cake with marzipan maggots), see disturbing cake installations and sample cocktails as dark as a Kraken’s Ink. The public can also visit the space to view a video of the Kraken autopsy and see a full photographic gallery of the process. ‘Treats’ on sale in the space are set to include festering mouth-of-Kraken cupcakes, chunks of human flesh and Kraken rum ‘Drowned Sailor Hands’. Entry to the event is free with no tickets required but due to the nature of the cakes on sale only those aged over 18+ will be able to enter.
The "autopsy" on Thursday was attended by bartenders who won a competition to produce cocktails "as dark as a Kraken’s ink." Their cocktails will also be featured at the event next week.
"Feed the Beast" will be open October 25-27th at The Rag Factory 16-18 Heneage Street, in London, England. There is no admission charge, but you must be 18 or older to attend, as some (actually all) of the treats are, shall we say, disturbing.
