This week, for Valentine's Day, London will be playing host to romantic pop up with a twist – every single one of the gifts, cards, cakes, cookies and pastries on sale in the Eat Your Heart Out event will be based on anatomically correct hearts.
A joint venture from Miss Cakehead and Medical Illustrator Emily Evans, the sales event features some of the grossest goodies and beautiful finds. The shop will feature a wide range of gifts for those who like their romance with an anatomical twist; the finest arts, crafts and cake makers having been commissioned for the project. Beautiful anatomical heart inspired pieces from jewellery, art prints, cards, embroidery, ceramics to cake, chocolate and anatomical flowers.
