Weird food: Corpse cakes and eerie eats

2014-08-01 18:45

No matter what the next few sentences will read, there is no way they will prepare you for the lunacy that is Conjurer’s Kitchen.

It is altogether dark, disturbing and fascinating. This is not a fancy dress shop – it’s a cake shop.

But I doubt very much you will be taking your Ouma there for afternoon tea.

My first thought when browsing the website was that who- ever designs these cakes must have spent time in the deep trenches of the underworld, wherever that may be, at some point in their lives.

Gone are the days where you were excused from the table for talking about bodily fluids and other inappropriate subjects because they are now on cakes.

But if you can get past the shock and horror, you may find it deep within yourself to be bowled over by the sheer detail of the creepy designs.

Everything looks so unbelievably lifelike. You can’t help but appreciate the artistic talent behind this daring culinary adventure.
