Jello Cathedral

We make a city from cardboard.  Others do it differently…

Jello Architecture – 1,000 architects explored the relation between architecture and food at the 2008 Architectural Jelly Banquet in London. Plans were drawn up and turned into jelly – or, as we know it here in the U.S., jello – molds, and the resulting creations were displayed and judged.

Biscuit City – Chinese artist Song Dong used thousands of biscuits and sweets to create a replica of an Asian city complete with a stadium and a church. The cityscape, installed in London department store Selfridges, was comprised of over 72,000 edible treats including caramels and fruit shortcake. Once it was completed, customers were invited to dig in.

London & Pizza – Food artists and amateur cooks created this edible map of London, which includes items like pizza, fish, sandwiches, pretzels, soda cans, breadsticks and olives. The Marble Arch was recreated in coconut and licorice, while the British Museum was rather more traditional in gingerbread.

    My sister (a chef) and I made an Eiffel tower wedding cake for my brother and sister-in-law. Bringing together the two professions was… a piece of cake. I’ll try to dig up a photo for you.
