I’m a big fan of white chocolate, but not even the strongest sweets craving couldn’t make me take a bite out of Annabel de Vetten’s creepy baby heads. They’re way too scary for me, but according to the English food artist they’re quite a hit at parties and baby showers.
The disturbing white chocolate artworks were originally designed as a private commission, but apparently they came out so good that Annabel decided to make several more. Then, her works were discovered by strange cake curator Miss Cakehead, who also brought the infamous STD Cupcakes to our attention, and now the eerily realistic newborn baby heads are a popular chocolate treat. “I just pictured ‘dead, milky eyes and skin’ and hit the nail on the so to speak. And creased the mold while it was setting to get a soft, ‘damaged’ effect. So, strangely enough, no challenge! I was a little worried some might think this is going a bit too far. But it’s only chocolate and if someone doesn’t like the shape it’s in, they can just go buy a Mars bar,” de Vetten told HuffPost.
The life-size baby heads are made with a latex mold the artist used to create candles with, and contain about 5,000 calories (double the daily intake for an average man). 41-year-old Annabel de Vetten says the white chocolate heads are too big for the average person to bite on, so she suggests smashing them with a hammer… She admits not everyone’s crazy about her original dessert, but she’s still swamped with orders from people who want the creepy sweets for parties and even baby showers.
