The event is being held in Kingly Court (off Carnaby Street in London) and the last day you can gorge yourself on all manner of sweet treats is 12th October. It is quite a thing to be seen, it’s hard to believe that almost everything is edible. I hope my pictures can get across how realistic some of the bakes were.
Above (clockwise from the top) is the edible meadow; covered in brightly coloured macarons and biscuits. The unicorn was fantastic and it seemed such a shame to cut into it (although it was made of rainbow cake so well worth a slice) and The Tattooed Bakers told me it took around 120 hours to put together. I can’t imagine where I would even start.
I loved the ridiculously realistic looking slug on top of the rather magical looking mushrooms. Even though I know it’s not actually a slug, I wasn’t tempted to try it! The meringue wigwam was so bright and colourful and the pistachio meringue I tried was delicious.
I think this is a great event to inspire people to bake. I don’t think I’ll be attempting a cabbage cake because I know it would look more like an accident but I’ve just realised I have at least eggs, butter, flour and sugar which means my possibilities are endless.
