Baked creations with an extra edge of gruesome for Hallowe’en


Published:

Lifelike intestines crafted from a mix of chocolate and fondant spill out from the belly of the cake.

Sam Lapointe isn’t your average pastry chef. Rather than frills and frou-frou, Lapointe’s cakey creations take inspiration from the goth and the geek.

At Cakes Cove, her Kickstarter-funded bakery located at 1074 St. Clair Ave. W., Lapointe whips up sugary confections that veer from the fail-safe (caramel sea salt) to custom cakes with a sinfully warped edge.

Have a high tolerance for the gruesome? For All Hallows’ Eve, party throwers can order cakes like the Tainted Love (above), a towering build with gloriously bloody guts spilling from its depths. Lapointe’s creation, which takes a casual two days to build, wraps fondant and chocolate around a centre of red velvet and chocolate raspberry. This Halloween, let your creep flag fly.

Bowls are another main draw. The Obi Wan Bulgogi ($15) has been the top seller to date. (We’re pretty sure that name has helped steer its path to popularity.) Beginning with a bed of black rice, the meal-in-a-bowl is loaded up with purple cabbage, roasted broccolini and a poached egg.

Ideas perpetuated through prohibition have given birth to the “stoner” image and also led to the widespread acceptance that THC, one of the psychoactive components in cannabis, will cause schizophrenia. This notion has kept dozens of researchers from exploring the anti-psychotic potential of cannabidiol (CBD), another cannabis compound that is non-psychoactive and shows promise in treatment of psychosis.
