Le Cordon Bleu marks St Pancras International's 150th birthday with 6ft cake!

3rd Oct 2018

Londoners treated to a literal slice of history thanks to Le Cordon Bleu at St Pancras International station.

We're big fans of massive cakes, and this has to be one of the most extraordinary! To mark the 150th birthday of one of Britain's most vital train stations, Le Cordon Bleu got to work to create a four-tiered masterpiece that was proudly displayed at the station on Monday. Created by Le Cordon Bleu’s Head Chef Julie Walsh, the cake comprises 6 dozen eggs, 10 bags of flour and weighs 9 stone! Head Chef Julie Walsh added:
“We were so excited to be asked to create this unique design for such a prestigious London landmark. We worked closely with the station’s heritage team to ensure that every element of the cake captured a moment in the station’s history. Every detail was intricately replicated by hand to ensure that each element, from the brickwork to ‘The Meeting Place’, looked authentic.”
The cake was shared after a cutting ceremony at 6pm - just incase you were worried that all that effort had gone to waste. We hear it was delicious!
