Sweet Britain - The UK map that is good enough to eat

Posted on 06. Sep, 2009 in Featured, Fun

Britons are indeed a unique nation! Look what they’ve come up with now. This map is a real piece of eye candy - a model of the British Isles made completely from sweets.

Artist Paul Baker turned the UK into Sweet Britain using more than 4,000 sweets in a painstaking model that even includes iconic British landmarks such as Stonehenge and Tower Bridge.

The two-metre-long creation, which took two months to make, also features edible miniatures of the Angel of the North, Silverstone racetrack, the Loch Ness monster, Hadrian’s Wall and Mount Snowdon.

Food model artist Paul, 49, said the mouth-watering masterpiece took twice as long to make than planned because some of the sweets melted in the sun.
