Miss Cakehead sez, "The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy saw guests feast on the (rum cake) corpse of a recently captured Kraken in the shadow of the now derelict Redsand Forts found nine miles off the UK coast. The remains of the creature will be displayed at Feed The Beast - an extreme pop up cake shop opening in London next week - with guests having the chance to feast on the (marzipan) maggot riddled flesh themselves."
The Black Ink Society, a Kraken Rum supported research team, has recovered and secured the remains of a Kraken found off the North Kent coast. It has now been revealed that an autopsy on the remains took place aboard the Kraken Hunting sea vessel X-Pilot in view of Redsand Forts where the beast was found – 9 miles off the coast of Kent in the Thames estuary – on the 17th October.
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).
