nothing says cake art like me and Alex drunk in a teacupI am curating an event at the Future Gallery that opens on the 26th August - it will be a Fully Edible Art Exhibition sponsored by Tate & Lyle and feature many members of The Experimental Food Society (EFS) www.experimentalfoodsociety.com/
The event will see British Artists such as George Morten Clarke, Alexander Turvey, Stuart Semple and Pete Fowler paired with food creatives such as Bompas & Parr, Prudence Staite, Michele Wibowo, Simon Smith, The Curious Confectioner and myself responding to the event's theme of FAIR.
In each case, the artist provides the concept and the food creative brings it into edible reality - in one off pieces such as a 6ft wedding cake designed by Stuart Semple - that will be auctioned - either for recreation or on the spot purchase- with all proceeds going to charity. (We Make Peace, The Fairtrade Foundation)
On the Sunday day we will cut into and eat the artworks - we will also be unveiling a very special Cake Catapult conceived of and designed by Polly Betton (also of the EFS) and making a huge edible mess.
Saturday will see a 'Tea Party in the Future' conceived by Bea of Bea's of Bloomsbury, a very talented and much loved London based baker who's background in Molecular Gastronomy makes her a perfect host for this event.
We will also have a Cupcake Tree that sprouts cakes, Crumbs & Doilies, Cake Pop Fairy Lights (courtesy of Molly Bakes), an entire Futureheads song baked in cookies on the wall, a Tate & Lyle candy floss machine, lots of free cake and opening night punch courtesy of Courvoisier.
