Food artist, Michelle Wibowo, 39, from West Sussex, has unveiled one of Roald Dahl’s most beloved characters; The BFG, made entirely from Mr Kipling cakes.
Sitting on a bench at the top of Primrose Hill, The life-sized BFG measured a ‘gigantuous’ 7.32 metres tall from head to toe, four times the size of a human. The ‘splendiferous’ sculpture was built using 7,500 cakes, weighing a whopping half a tonne and took more than 200 hours to create.
Michelle Wibowo, Food artist, Cake and Sugar Sculpture, commented, “It was a pleasure to create such a loved character using some of Britain’s most iconic cakes. The sculpture included a range of cakes, including traditional Mr Kipling Cherry Bakewells to new The BFG’s Strawbunkle and Cream Fancies.”
