In the heart of culinary fusion and artistic collaboration, BAKE joins forces with Ramenhead on a project born from a shared love for Japanese culture and cuisine. Spearheaded by Culinary Director Ashley Moss, the genius behind Ramenhead, and infused with the creative energy of Bake (Warren Petersen), this collaboration transcends boundaries, weaving together artistry, gastronomy, and Japanese influence into a tapestry of sensory delight.


The inception of the Ramenhead project stemmed from Moss's profound appreciation for Japanese food and culture. Initially envisioned as a simple Ramen illustration, the collaboration evolved organically into a full-fledged partnership, fueled by a mutual passion for manga and Japanese traditions. Imported directly from Japan, every ingredient used by Ramenhead bears the stamp of authenticity, ensuring an unparalleled experience for enthusiasts of Japanese cuisine.

Central to the collaboration is Ramenhead's prized possession: a rare Japanese noodle-making machine. With only two of its kind in Africa, this intricate piece of machinery stands as a testament to Ramenhead's commitment to craftsmanship and excellence. Moss's meticulous process of noodle-making, captured in vivid detail by Bake, serves as the cornerstone of the collaborative illustration adorning the back of Ramenhead's signature white tee.


Bake, also known as Warren Petersen, emerges as the perfect artistic counterpart to the Ramenhead project. Renowned for his ability to seamlessly blend Japanese influences into his art, Bake's distinctive style infuses every stroke with narrative depth and cultural resonance. Whether etched onto skin or canvas, Bake's creations resonate across diverse artistic realms, embodying the essence of Japanese aesthetic sensibility.


BakedInk and Ramenhead invite you to embark on a journey of discovery - a celebration of Japanese culture, culinary mastery, and artistic expression.

In every bowl of ramen, in every stroke of the pen, lies a story waiting to be told—a testament to the enduring power of collaboration and creativity.
