When I was a kid, some of my favourite stories were the Enid Blyton's Wishing Chair or Magic Faraway Tree stories. They are about a group of children who find a way to enter other lands i.e. by climbing the Magic Faraway Tree or sitting in the Wishing Chair.
They would then have all sorts of "exciting" adventures and meet witches/goblins/elves etc etc. All very wholesome.
But the places that I loved the most, were the "magic food worlds" - where the rocks were made of chocolate, sweets grew on trees and the streams were full of lemonade. (Yes, I was a greedy child who grew up to become a greedy adult hahaha)
So imagine my excitement when I saw an advert on TV about making a car out of cake! Yes, everything in this car is made out of cake and other edible materials!
And it's not just the body; all the parts eg windscreen wipers, engine block etc have all been lovingly made out of yummy stuff. The panels are made of a baked rice crispy mix and the rear lights are made of jelly. Ingenious! Even the cake is not just boring old pound cake, but fruit cake, chocolate cake, battenburg cake....
The engine block above is full of golden syrup as "engine oil".....
I don't know how to stick on a YouTube clip, but fellow cake-lovers please click here and select the "baking of documentary" link. You can also view the actual advert there which is v. good.
Also look here which has more pictures.
The car is a Skoda, but hey nothing's perfect.
