Miss Cakehead writes, "Feed The Beast, the world's most extreme cake sho,p is open. Guests coming along will be able to see, and feast on the 'flesh' of, this showstopper cake by The Tattooed Bakers - a Devil Horse cake dripping in rum, literally. The beast has Kraken Rum pouring from its nose into a skull-surrounded font. It was cut open by the mighty Kraken Hunter and guests at the opening party who wanted a top up could simply place their glass under the stream for an instant supply of The Kraken Rum. It took The Tattooed Bakers over 200 hours to complete, shown in the stunning attention to detail, and anatomically correct detailing. The cake flesh was of course made from red velvet."
So Feed The Beast 2013 is open and there are so many amazing cakes it would be impossible to fit them into just one post. Thought it would be a good place to start with the showstopper cake by The Tattooed Bakers (see bottom image) – a Devil Horse cake dripping in rum, literally. The beast had Kraken Rum pouring from it’s nose into a font which was surrounded by skulls. It was cut open by the mighty Kraken Hunter and guests at the opening party were invited to help themselves to it’s red velvet cake insides, and those who wanted a top up could simply place their glass under the stream for supply of The Kraken Rum. It took Eddie & Rich over 200 hours to complete, shown in the stunning attention to detail.
