Creepy Realistic Cake Art By Annabel de Vetten

Eating human flesh is taboo, but the morbid creations of food artist Annabel de Vetten, the Birmingham, UK mastermind behind Conjurer’s Kitchen, simulate the experience. From white chocolate dead baby heads to skinned animals, de Vetten’s cool cakes make dessert a truly guilty pleasure.

“You get that little thrill of eating something your eyes tell you not to, but your nose and taste buds urge to devour,” de Vetten told Vice. “German being such a descriptive language…’wake’ is literally translated to ‘corpse feast,'” the German-born artist added when asked if there was anything ritualistic about eating her ghastly realistic artworks.

De Vetten’s inspiration for these beautiful cakes comes from horror movies and alternative art, and the gruesomely detailed style of her cool desserts is the result of her training in fine art and taxidermy. Conjurer’s Kitchen edible art shop opened in 2011 and has worked with Barbican Museum, the British Library, the shop Obscura from the television serial Oddities, and others. De Vetten’s unique artworks are particularly popular in the death-positive community (medical historians, funeral directors, etc).
