Hansel and Gretel’s gingerbread house has got nothing on the Cake Hotel. For one, the witch-made house in their story obviously can’t hold up to harsh outdoor conditions. It has pretty crappy interiors, too, considering the fact that it was pretty bare except for a huge oven (or cauldron–depending on which version of the story you’re reading) where the kids were supposed to be cooked in.
On the other hand, the Cake Hotel put up by refinery Tate and Lyle Sugars is all about comfort and luxury. The lush room was decorated with elaborate and edible trimmings and furnishings, with vanilla sponge cushions propped up on the bed and a hand-stitched meringue rug that you’re supposed to chew on, now walk on.
The house with fudge-lined windows and macaron-ed walls was only open for a day as part of a PR exercise by Tate and Lyle Sugars. It may be just that to them, but I have a feeling that it’s a dream come true for others. Especially those with a particularly strong sweet tooth.
