Bibendum Building - Terence Conran - Celebration Cake
This is my first fully designed panelled royal icing cake for the Squires Kitchen 2015 cake competition.
The Bibendum Building is an amazing and unique former home of Michelin in the heart of Chelsea, London.
Bought by Terence Conran thirty years ago and home to a fabulous restaurant and The Conran Shop, I have always admired the building and the fanciful design encouraged by the Michelin brothers.
The Michelin Man, Bibendum or Bibby, as I call him, is a world known brand and the motto reads, 'Nunc est bibendum', latin for, 'Now is the time to drink!'
I was very fortunate to have the work of Thibaud Herem and his fantastic drawings to look at. This saved me time, simplified my design and made it easy to pipe over his drawings. Check out his great work here: http://www.thibaudherem.com/
