Giant Cake

To celebrate the finished ‘Tico’ office installation, as well as announcing the winners of our ‘Creative Workspace Competition’, this week at Helix we have gone cake crazy! The talented bakers of ‘Caking it’ and ‘Cupid Cakes’ spent 2 days baking, building, icing, colouring and glacing the 4ft long cake made from Victoria sponge, Chocolate cake and Orange & almond. After all a party without cake is just a meeting!

Each individual colour has to be mixed, rolled and applied separately.
