We know you all love competitions, so we thought we’d let you know about the latest Royal wedding themed competition from Tate & Lyle Sugars. Their current campaign is called ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ , a Royal Wedding baking competition.
Anybody can enter through Facebook with either a picture or drawing of their cake design. The winner will have their cake displayed at Wellington Arch, London for all to see! You can find out more about the competition through this link: http://apps.facebook.com/letthemeatcake/
If entering the competition is not your cup of tea, you can still visit the exhibition:
Exhibition of Royal Wedding Cakes @ Wellington Arch, London, 22nd – 25th April 2011
Tate & Lyle Royal Icing Sugar are sponsoring an exhibition of royal wedding cakes through the ages at Wellington Arch, London on 22nd – 25th April 2011 in celebration of the wedding of the UK’s Prince William to his fiancée Kate Middleton on April 29th 2011.
Simon Smith & Roland Rotherham – co-authors of “Simmering Through the Ages: A Culinary Journey Through History” have collated an exhibition showing the recipes used for royal wedding cakes in the past and even a few tasters for visitors to the London monument.
Found at Hyde Park Corner, Wellington Arch was originally commissioned as a grand outer entrance to Buckingham Palace and moved to its present site in 1882. The bronze sculpture which sits atop the arch is called the Quadriga and is the largest bronze sculpture in Europe.
The balconies of the Wellington Arch give a full view of London’s Royal Parks, the Houses of Parliament and the Household Cavalry, who pass beneath on their way to and from the Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade. Inside the Arch, three floors of exhibits are linked by a lift and staircase.
In addition to the excitement of the royal wedding cakes, entrance to the Wellington Arch will be free over the four days of the exhibition – saving over £12 for a family of four – courtesy of Tate & Lyle Sugar. Limited edition packs of Tate & Lyle Fairtrade Royal Icing Sugar will be available at Tesco, Waitrose, Co-op and Lidl to celebrate the royal wedding. Tate & Lyle Royal Icing Sugar holds of the royal warrant for the provision of sugar to Her Majesty the Queen.
