Pictures from Cake City 2013 by Richard Kenworthy
On Bank Holiday Monday August 26th 2013 a giant, edible map of Newcastle and Gateshead was built. NewcastleGateshead Cake City was the fourth event in the series following Cakebook Britain in 2012, Cakebook North in 2011 and the original flashmob Cakebook in 2010.
Teams of amateur and professional bakers from around the region and beyond were invited to choose and build their favourite landmark site in cake.
The creations were placed on a 100sq metre fully edible map on the indoor concourse at the Sage Gateshead creating a visual and gastronomic feast as Cake City bakers watched.
Congratulations to Nick Hall and Iona Owen who made Ouseburn City Farm and won the Baker's Choice vote.
EAT! NewcastleGateshead is produced by NewcastleGateshead Initiative. Cake City is created and directed by Simon Preston
