30th March sees the launch of a temporary cake shop called ‘Sacred Tarts’, featuring creations from Nicola Shipley of Tattoo Cakes. The shop will feature cake Popes, cake truffle eyeballs on a plate and a representation of St Lucy. Other contributors include Francesca Mattea and Laura Edwards of Mama Jamma Cakes.
Carla Connolly, Assistant Technical Curator at the museum and creator of the Sacred Tarts event, said: “Easter eggs are always well received, but are pretty boring when you know you’re going to get them every year. The Sacred Tarts team will be busy over the next six weeks coming up with some pretty exciting alternatives – from crystal sugar crowns of thorns to butterscotch crucifixes and edible saints.”
Designed to highlight ‘the darker side of religion’, the show is free to enter, open from 11am to 6pm and located in Barts Pathology Museum in the Robin Brook Centre, West Smithfield, London.
