Their unique flare and eccentric humour, together with unusual titles for their work, have become one of the most recognisable and collected style of limited edition art and sculpture today. This series features six limited editions, a boutique piece and a selection of 3D wall sculptures.

Peter said:

"With 'Bake Off' fever sweeping the nation we wanted to create a collection that would capture this spirit and celebrate Britain's love affair with baking. "Each piece of artwork has been painstakingly created – from the making of the maquettes to the oh-so-bothersome baking of all the cakes featured in the works! "As always, we hope to make people smile when they see our work which aims to retain the imaginative wonderment and limitless creativity we all experienced as a child."

The exhibition can be seen from October 1-9.
