Nine-hole golf course made from cake in London

‘Don’t lick the obstacles’. When said obstacles are London landmarks made to look like cake, following that rule is harder than it sounds. Welcome to the Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party, a nine-hole, cake-based golf course now open for the summer and ready for putting on Selfridges’ rooftop.

From the endlessly creative British team, Bompas & Parr, the installation pays homage to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. And what a homage it is. Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tower Bridge stand tall here covered in fondant and piped with icing. Sugary water falls, cake-stand bunkers, and the scent of Bakewell tarts (thanks to a micro-technology system) all complete the scene at the highest afternoon tea on Oxford Street.
