Till death do us part

Annex Post - - FOOD -

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.

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