No one goes past a huge milestone birthday without matching it with huge cake, right?

This article was originally written by Cambridge News Well, this was the thinking in the kitchens at Wimpole Hall a week ago, where a group of baking genius' pulled up their socks and took to the ovens to meticulously recreate the 17th century manor house in decadant chocolate sponge. Top chef Bart Swiacki got his sons together, Marek and Patrice Adamowicz, to construct this cake which is 66cm tall and weighs over 200kg! We don't want to think about how many calories it contains.
They spent approximately 48 hours building the to-scale model, it was then displayed at Wimpole Hall over the weekend.
