Annabel de Vetten-Peterson, who runs Conjurers Kitchen, can do the most fantastic things with her culinary skills. This is waaaay more than making cake: she has an amazing artist eye and hand. And while you normally think of cakes as being sweet, her favoured subjects are often dark – skulls, blood, guts, a realistic skinned swan and little foetus chocolate heads.
Back when I was an ankle biter, the best I got for my birthday was a thick, dripping chocolate cake, with a handful of candles on top. These days, the kids are getting a bit more … errr … demanding, as this incredibly artful collection of kiddie birthday cakes suggest.
