If you didn't already know, it's national baking week Oct 17th-23rd 2011. Ruth Clemens of the pink whisk and Great British Bake Off Finalist 2010 is the face of national baking week. You can watch a live Q&A session with Ruth here.
I saw the video of the national baking week cake online and couldn't wait to see it in person so I was really excited to go and see it in person today. It is a giant cake of London tube stops and landmarks and I absolutely love the details in it. It's definitely worth visiting if you are in the area or if you live in London for that matter. The display can be seen at King's Cross St Pancras International near the eurostar departures. However, if you can't get there in person, I hope these pictures will give you an idea of what it looks like. I wonder how long it took to make and how many bakers were involved.
I love the names of the stations - swiss roll cottage and victoria sponge are my favourites but they were all very creative and clever.
