I’ve been involved with art directing Miss Cakehead‘s edible horror show for Alice Cooper’s Freakshow Auditions, held yesterday in London’s Hyde Park. The installation took inspiration from Silent Hill, and featured open wound cupcakes from The Butcher of Caker Street, Silent Hill Cake Pops from Kiss & Bake Up, blood splattered cupcakes from I Heart Cupcakes, and of course, the terrifying dead nurse cake by Mamma Jamma Cakes. Here are some photos:
Yes, ladies and gents, she is all cake. (Six layers of chocolate cake, in fact.)

Miss Cakehead with blood on her hands. (Delicious red velvet cake, FYI.)

This is me with the backdrop I made. (I’m trying hard to look badass here.)
It was a day of much craziness. Apart from the madness of assembling an elaborate dessert table in sweltering heat, We witnessed the auditions themselves, which involved a lot of staplers, fire, and fake blood. Enough Said.
