British sugar cane brand Tate and Lyle Sugars has created the world’s first hotel made entirely out of cake.
Based in Soho, the cake hotel took a team of 14 cake makers more than 2,000 hours to back and 900 hours to decorate.
Eight new Fairtrade sugars were used in the cake-making process, each containing a diverse flavour and texture. The new range of Fairtrade sugars was created to encourage a new generation of bakers to get creative in the kitchen.
Senior brand manager at Tate and Lyle Sugars James Whiteley said: “We think the cake hotel perfectly captures the excitement, inspiration and expertise behind the creation of our new range of golden and brown cane sugars. The Taste Experience range is about more than just adding sweetness; it’s about subtle flavour differences, texture and appearance. We hope that through the cake hotel we can showcase the versatility of golden and brown cane sugars and inspire people to get creative in the kitchen.”
The hotel contains vanilla sponge cushions; windows and walls clad with 2,000 macaroons; a rug made from 1,081 hand-stitched meringues; 20 kilograms of marshmallow garlands; windowsills built from entirely from fudge; and a bath filled with caramel-coated popcorn!
