We love a creative challenge and boy did we embrace the theme when it came to creating a junk food themed dessert table to celebrate the 30th birthday of London Mess AKA James Thomlinson (above – he only dresses like this on his birthday in case you were wondering).
Our installation was themed around ‘the morning after’ and staged to look as if Jim had been eaten junk food in bed, the ‘table cloth’ a duvet and there was even a pillow on the table. The Tattooed Bakers created one of their infamous head cakes for Jim (based on a previous shoot with Travis Hodges) with other food artists contributing including Nevie Pie Cakes, Miss Insomnia Tulip, Caking It and Cake Revolution (thanks ladies & Rich you nailed it).
A few of the treats are show below, it was an epic installation. The full menu (ALL CAKE):
‘Mr Sprinkles’ Rainbow Cake, Burgers, Pizza, Salt & Pepper Squid, Singapore Noodles, Edible Cigarette Butts, Samosa, Barjis, Macaron Breakfast, Chicken Buckets, Shortbread Chips, Cocktail Sausages & Pineapples on Sticks, Pickled Onions & Cheese, Mini Pork Pies, Pigs in Blankets, 30th Birthday Cupcakes, Whisky (jelly), Half Drunk Coffee… and if that wasn’t enough a mixture of confectionary and other surprises.
The attention to detail and theme is best seen in this video below:
With a junk food theme other touches included ‘James’ coke bottles filled with gummy cola bottles, personalised take-out branding (McThomlinsons), junk food gummy sweets, fast food balloons and even a bouquet of bacon roses.
Guests were given a mixture of take our containers to as party bags, with their names spelt wrong on the top in biro as with all the best takeaways.
Oh day of the party also involved a Happy Birthday gold leaf bacon sandwich (as you do).
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LONDON MESS!
