News Desk; Visitors will be encouraged to eat their way through windows and walls clad with 2,000 macaroons, a rug made from 1,081 meringues hand-stitched together, 20kg (44lb) of marshmallow garlands, windowsills built entirely from fudge and a bath filled with caramel-coated popcorn.<!–more–>
The bedside table even features edible books and vanilla sponge cushions are included in the room service menu, so nobody will go home hungry.
Built to promote a new range from Tate & Lyle Sugars, the temporary hotel in Dean Street includes edible art across three floors and eight rooms.
‘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,’ said James Whiteley a spokesman for Tate & Lyle Sugars.
‘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’ is the creation of more than 14 artists, including The Meringue Girls and Cake For Breakfast, who spent almost 3,000 hours baking and decorating their wares using more than 600kg (1,320lb) of sugar.
Eight tasting rooms include a Mediterranean-inspired bedroom with edible bunting, a Pirates Of The Caribbean room with a treasure chest full of edible pearls, ginger spiced doubloons and cutlasses, and a South Pacific room with an Easter Island statue made entirely from chocolate mud cake.
The cake ‘hotel’ opens to the public on Thursday March 21.(Agency)
