CakeBomb hit the The Cake and Bake Show Manchester with a bang as its life-sized edible jungle went down a storm with the public and the media alike. With an Indian theme to add Bollywood bling and sparkle, the CakeBomb jungle was full of creatures ranging from earth worms to tigers. The jungle featured a working waterfall, smoking hookah pipe and the smells and sounds of India.
Kashmira, the four-handed, three-headed fantasy goddess took centre stage and the delicious fruitcake body was cut by celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager. And how could we forget the life-sized baby elephant cake created and worked on by the team in front of the watching crowds. It was cut by Rosemary with the help of Great British Bake off winner John Whaite and celebrity pâtissier Eric Lanlard, cheered on by our guest compere Ted Robbins and the friendly Manchester crowd.
Manchester you were wonderful. Consider yourself ‘CakeBombed’.
