This Wu-besotted baker will keep feeding you…and feeding you… and feeding you…
Amirah Kassem runs the New York baking company Flour Shop, and she’s put her talents to good use, producing a series of cakes inspired by the 20th anniversary of Wu Tang Clan‘s Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The C.R.E.A.M: Cake Rules Everything Around Me series features an array of Wu-inspired confections. A frosted Wu-Tang sword, an edible chess board and a cake-based approximation of a Chinese takeaway box are among the sweet treats on offer.
Photographs of Kassem’s works, taken by photographer Henry Hargreaves, are currently on display in the city’s Wallplay gallery. For those unable to head down in person, feast your eyes on some examples of her handicraft below. If you ever get the chance to tuck into one of these beauts, we’d advise riding off the calories on a Wu-Tang bike.
Although none of the FACT office are gourmet bakers, we’ve celebrated the anniversary of our second favourite album of the 1990s in our own humble way: FACT’s Laurent Fintoni offered a superfan’s tribute to the album, and we’ve also examined some of the more outlandish Wu-Tang myths.
