Release the Kraken! Monster’s Ink


We can now reveal an additional Halloween event that we’ll be part of this week. Tomorrow night we’ll be taking a taste of Art Macabre along to Eat Your Heart Out ‘Feed the Beast’ – Miss Cakehead’s infamous extreme cake shop for 2013!

We’re thrilled that we’ll be bring some monstrous inky activities to the Preview Party for this year’s ever-astounding Eat Your Heart Out event. This year Miss Cakehead and co are supported by those tasty purveyors of the spicey stuff Kraken Rum and so we’ll be inviting guests to add to our ancient map with drawing of their favourite kraken-themed cakes they’ve spotted, drawn in ink (of course), as they sip rum cocktails and feast on an edible kraken autopsy.

I know that any fan of Art Macabre will also appreciate the creative macabre glory of Miss Cakehead‘s cake curation spectaculars. If you’ve yet to make it…

Génesis 22:1-19

Y cuando llegaron al lugar que Dios le había dicho, edificó allí Abraham un altar, y compuso la leña, y ató a Isaac su hijo, y lo puso en el altar sobre la leña.

10 Y extendió Abraham su mano y tomó el cuchillo para degollar a su hijo.

11 Entonces el ángel de Jehová le dio voces desde el cielo, y dijo: Abraham, Abraham. Y él respondió: Heme aquí.

12 Y dijo: No extiendas tu mano sobre el muchacho, ni le hagas nada; porque ya conozco que temes a Dios, por cuanto no me rehusaste tu hijo, tu único.

For almost three years between 1888 and 1891, he terrorized, fascinated, and repulsed the Victorian London and the world beyond, before fading out of history as abruptly as he had entered it. Many a prominent Victorian was accused of being him, but the Whitechapel Murderer was never actually caught, although the abrupt end of his reign of terror suggested that it was interrupted by his death, incarceration, institutionalization, or deportation.

Unlike all other acknowledged victims of Jack the Ripper, Mary Jane Kelly was killed inside, in her apartment at Miller Court. Her face was mutilated — again something not found in four other ‘official’ Ripper victims. For those reasons, whether Mary Jane Kelly was an actual victim of Jack the Ripper has always been…
