A dedicated team of 15 specialist bakers and food artists were tasked with creating an edible train, providing a sweet treat for passengers on their way to and from Heathrow. The cake celebrates the 15th anniversary of the Heathrow Express – the fastest way to travel to Heathrow. The enormous cake – measuring a huge 1.5 x 4 x 2m – took the team over 30 hours to build and install on the platform using a toolkit which included industrial cake mixers, copper moulds, blowtorches and spirit levels, and will remain there until the end of the day on Monday 24 June. Heathrow Express customers will be offered the chance to sample it as they pass through Paddington.
