Let them eat Dodo cake...



Last night’s Experimental Food Society event at the Victoria and Albert Museum was full of surprises – even for ShopCurious.

Curious culinary trends included food landscapes and architecture, vegetable cupcakes and edible fashion.

But it was remarkable sugar artist and cake sculptor, Michelle Wibowo, who stole the show. Who would ever have imagined that a curiously cute kid with a passion for baking would grow up to create a severed head cake for a Halloween birthday party?


























Wibowo's latest curiosity cake creation was a giant Dodo, made especially for the Experimental Food Society’s annual ‘Spectactular’ in London last weekend. I say was, because last night we ate it.

And here she is performing the cutting ceremony:











I bet you want to know what Dodo tastes like?

Do you?

She's amazing isn't she?
I remember her London West End cake.
That dodo looked incredibly detailed.
Did you get to taste it?

The cake was huge, Jan - enough for everyone and some... And, yes, I tasted Dodo.

Poor dodo. She's so gorgeous. I think I would have burst into tears when they carved her up...

yes always seems so decadent to destroy something so lovely! hope it wasn't just icing though, never been one for inches of icing
