Queen Mary to host anatomy-themed baking festival with Lectures 26-28th October


Eat Your Heart Out 2012 runs from 26-28 October at St Bartholomew’s Pathology Museum – based at QM’s West Smithfield campus – and aims to educate the public on anatomy and disease through the unusual medium of anatomically correct cakes, cookies and cocktails.

A series of pathology based lectures will also examine the real-life conditions behind the edible treats on sale, which include an astonishingly realistic Trio of Toenail Fungus Cookies, Polycystic Kidney Cakes and Anatomical Macaroons. Artists come from across the UK and include Tattoo Cakes, Nevie-Pie Cakes and The Conjurer’s Kitchen.
