Baketopia

Baketopia

Got a bit of a sweet tooth? Baketopia might be right up your street. This baking-inspired pop-up has been created by Miss Cakehead to celebrate the start of National Baking Week (14th – 20th October 2013). Guests at the pop-up will be able to dip frog-shaped cookies into a milk fountain; harvest meringue mushrooms; break honeycomb pieces from a bee hive; catch pastry butterflies and even pull hyper realistic looking carrot cakes from chocolate cookie earth.

The centrepiece of the tasty tableau will be a giant unicorn, created by the Tattooed Bakers, made from rainbow cake and complete with edible gold leaf embossed hooves and horn. To show their appreciation, guests will be encouraged to make a £2 donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, National Baking Week’s charity partner. All donations will go towards a ward kitchen for the hospital's brand new respiratory unit. “It’s a dream come true for our collective to get creative for National Baking Week," says Miss Cakehead. "It felt only right for us to make a utopian landscape, good enough to eat, which would inspire others to bake.”

In London’s Kingly Court, just off Carnaby Street, the pop-up, entitled ‘Baketopia’, will be open to the sweet-toothed public on Friday 11th & Saturday the 12th of October from 12pm – 7pm. The Wonka-esque landscape will feature over 3000 portions of baked goods for guests to devour over two days—everything is edible and everything must go. The Tattooed Bakers, Nevie Pie Cakes, Caking It and Conjurer’s Kitchen are just some of the contributors to the project, which is also supported by John Whaite, National Baking Week’s ambassador and the winner of the 2012 Great British Bake Off.
