Created by Birmingham cake artist Mrs de Vetten, 41, these £35  life-sized, solid white chocolate baby heads which weigh nearly one kilogram and contains 5,000 calories – nearly twice the recommended daily calorie intake for men - are proving a hit at parties and even as gifts ..... at baby showers.

People are nuts.

Those chocolate baby heads are creepy.

Kelly said...

I agree...those baby heads ARE creepy! I can't imagine using one at a baby shower.

I bet that antiquated "sex & pregnancy" manual would be interesting to look through!

The Mens fashion week pics are ridiculous . They look like transvestites.
As Kelly says the baby heads are creepy. eerie indeed.
I would like to see the manual on sex by the Philospher

Jenners said...

Oh those baby heads are horrifying!! The photo just gave me the creeps.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I heard about the baby heads. I think that is as creepy as having those cute baby cakes and hacking into them... :P

naida said...

Those baby heads are grotesque! yikes.

How do people leave implants and live crabs behind in a hotel? (I'm not a Harry Potter fan yet, so I'm imagining there are screams elsewhere regarding his wand.) The chocolate baby heads did creep me out a bit. Excellent round of news again, Petty!

Hi Tracy,

Those baby heads are definitely the most gross looking things I have ever seen, they could even put a confessed chocolate love, off the stuff!!!

Not so sure about the molten wax tights either ... although perhaps I was influenced by the terrible pair of legs in your post, before I even clicked on the link. I'm not too sure if the poor girl is knock-kneed, bandy, or is ust having real trouble with the shoes!!

Hope the decorating is going well, I can fully sympathise with you. We had to squash the entire contents of our place into the lounge, including the bed, for nearly three months, whilst we were having rennovations done ....Never Again!

Suko said...

These stories are pretty unbelievable! Those "sweet" baby heads are a more than a bit creepy, and I think I'll keep my regular stockings, thank you very much....

The Golden Eagle said...

Other than it looks silly, I can only think that those wooden plans must be heavy to carry around on your head and shoulders.

Blond Duck said...

I'll take the micro pig, but not the molten tights!

I don't know how you find these gems. Those baby heads scare me a little bit! I have a friend who would have loved to have had a zombie themed wedding- but she got married 10 years ago (Halloween theme). That manual is probably interesting!

Alyce said...

Those tights look so uncomfortable! And as for the baby heads - they were so creepy I scrolled right past and didn't even stop to read what that was about. :)

carol said...

Those baby heads are just too creepy. I mean I love chocolate, but that's just wrong.

Gina R said...

Well now that was a mix and a half! That zombie wedding though...I actually have a friends whose friend IS having a zombie theme wedding. *-* Yep...nuff said.

Betty Manousos said...

oh, those chocolate baby heads are just too creepy!

Alexia561 said...

How on earth do you leave a winning lottery ticket in a hotel room??? And totally agree with everyone else that those baby heads are beyond creepy!

StarTraci said...

Molten lava leggings -- super cool! White chocolate baby heads -- aack!
