Old Spitalfields Market returns to its roots as morning commuters are surprised to find edible orange and lemon trees,
made from Green & Black’s Organic chocolate, have sprouted overnight to celebrate the launch of the
two new Green & Black’s Organic orange and lemon bars.
Created in partnership with Jacqui Kelly for Miss Cakehead, the edible grove took over 55 hours to create,
and used over 65kg of chocolate.
Cake Revolution is proud to have been invited by McVities to model the crown for the
top of the official
Queens Diamond Jubilee Cake
The cake is 1.05 metres tall and consists of five tiers representing different aspects of The Queen’s life.
The base of the cake features all of the 54 flags of the Commonwealth nations.
The next tier of the six-sided cake features beautiful depictions of the residences of The Queen: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral Castle, Sandringham and Holyrood, together with a panel celebrating ’60 glorious years’ of HM’s reign with regal miniatures of a lion, ‘ER’ and a crown.
The third layer of the cake links back to the coronation with – alternating – the Royal Coat of Arms for The Queen and a representation of the windows of Westminster Abbey where Her Majesty’s coronation ceremony took place.
The fourth tier of the cake features – alternating – the ‘Order of the Garter’ in its decorative silver surround, with a silver/white lattice ring with the four national symbols in each corner; and the ‘ER’ in gold, with a gold/white lattice ring, surrounded with the four national symbols in each corner. The Order of the Garter, founded in 1348, remains the highest order of chivalry in England today.
At the top of the cake is an exquisite replica of the Imperial Crown. The crown has taken 200 man hours and four weeks to make and is modelled in solid edible icing with a combination of real and edible gems and pearls to represent the diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls in the Imperial Crown.
The cake contains some 50kg of dried fruit, which has been soaked in three litres of whisky and brandy.
