Jellies, the new cupcakes

Jellymongers Bompass and Parr were surely Willy Wonka fans growing up (how else would you come up with "Jellymonger" as an occupation?) The pair are described as "jelly architects" who have created event experiences such as glowing alcoholic jelly installations, a chewing gum micro-factory where visitors can create their own gum from a list of 200 flavours including Hendricks Gin, white truffle and smoke (?!), scratch and sniff cards accompanying a screening of Peter Greenaway’s The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover, a walk in cloud of breathable gin and tonic, and 'The Architectural Punchbowl", being enjoyed in the picture below by Blurs' Alex James.

Featuring a punchbowl so big that you can row on it filled with over 4,000 litres of a Courvoisier-based cocktail. Guests floating on fruity shaped rafts were served by a waiter rowing around the punchbowl on a boat. The mind-boggling duo are coming to Melbourne soon as part of the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.
