This time of year, as Halloween candy starts to show up in stores, you have to wonder what Miss Emmylou Cakehead is planning for Halloween. Her productions are guaranteed to raise eyebrows, and this year is no exception.

Miss Cakehead and company will present Cakeaggedon, the very first edible horror farm!
What is a horror farm you ask? Well don't pry too much because we all know how the curious cat ended up... If you do want to come and investigate the strange goings on here though, you might do well to bring a friend - we don't want anyone picked off. Those select few brave enough to venture into the woods will witness, gorge, and be hunted through the world's most terrifying cake installation, and those that make it out will ensure it is THE most talked about scare attraction of 2014. Your mistress of misery for this symposium of sweet slaughter is the infamous and eccentric MISS CAKEHEAD. Her latest reinvention is as far from a convivial cake connoisseur as The Big Bad Wolf is from a vegan food hall. Think cakes are all sunshine and rainbows? You couldn't be further from the tooth....
Cakeageddon is a combination cake show and interactive horror tour, taking place at Standalone Farm in Letchworth Garden City, Herfordshire, UK, October 29th through November first. This is no cake walk, except it kind of is.
Scattered around the farm will be a series of large scale cake installations which brave visitors will be able to tuck into if there dare… There will be plenty of nasty surprises in store as they go on their cake-walk though the night… Even the children’s play barn on the farm is touched by Miss Cakehead’s twisted mind, taken over by a nightmarish edible creation of Animal Farm.
Despite the presence of a children’s play barn, this tour is not for children. The highlight of Cakeageddon is the Three Little Pigs, all freshly slaughtered, by the cake artists at Tattooed Bakers. There will be more than three cakes, with freshly-baked versions for eating. Other gruesome cakes by Tattooed Bakers, Nevie Pie Cakes, Fancy Nancy Cakes, Daniel P. Carter, Totally Sugar, and Caking It will be featured at Cakeaggedon.
