Once again we’ve commissioned Channel 4’s Extreme Cake Maker, Rosie Dummer (AKA The Cake-Diva) to make a special feature cake especially for the Cake and Bake Show and we don’t like to make it easy for her!
What could be better than a super-sized illusion cake to complement our competition theme this year? And as for a subject...well we’ve always flown the flag for Great Britain with our show-cake and this year is no exception.
At past shows Rosie has paid tribute to London’s Iconic Big Ben clock and she has also created our very own regal British Bulldog but this year we are championing the good old British sense of humour.
Of course we don’t do politics, we do CAKE but let’s face it, whatever your political leanings, Boris is one politician who is known for his sense of humour. Let’s hope that a sweet version of his zip-wire antics brings a smile to visitors’ faces.
Rosie’s 7ft high hanging Boris cake is made with yummy Sweet Success sponge and chocolate ganache with 90kg Renshaw icing.
Rosie says, “I never thought I’d be asked to make a cake of Boris. The challenge of making a life-sized cake is always daunting, especially of such a well-known figure, but trying to suspend such a heavy weight is a whole new level of extreme for me. How was it done? Well that would be telling!”
