Rufus Hound met the sugarcraft specialists behind some of the world’s most unusual cakes in a TV show earlier this month.
In ‘The Extreme Cake Makers’, which aired on Channel 4 on Sunday June 12 from 12.30pm-1pm, the comedian, actor and presenter took an irreverent look at extreme cake makers and their creations, from a solar system made of sponge, to edible steel statues and life-sized fondant swans.
Channel 4 said: ‘Thanks to the baking revolution we’ve once again fallen in love with cake, and no party is now complete without a show-stopping sponge. But to make wowing wedding cakes and bumper birthday bakes takes a special kind of cake maker.
‘Welcome to the world of extreme cake-making, where sugarcraft specialists up and down the country dream up ever more elaborate ways to satisfy our sweet tooth. So turn the oven to gas mark 6 and get your cake fork ready. We’re inviting you into the kitchen to get a taste of what it’s really like to create, bake and make extreme cakes.’
