Selfridges’ edible Christmas window

Selfridges' edible window for Christmas

I’ve spent all week (since I heard about the Biscuiteers’ window) trying to make it down to Selfridges.  And neither Mini nor I were in the least bit disappointed this morning to find this particular window (on the corner of Orchard St) of sugary gingerbread architecture.   The edible model of London’s previously (nothing to do with last night’s storm) demolished buildings took over 400 hours to design, bake and build.

In partnership with famous jelly-mongers Bompas & Parr and Lyle’s Golden Syrup, Biscuiteers were commissioned to create this installation to fill Selfridges’ main Christmas window.  It is, without doubt, worth making a trip, despite today’s high winds.

Once inside, I found I could take better photos (as the reflection can be a slight hinderance!) before dropping down into the kitchen department to find more gingerbread inspiration as well as all the merchandise you need to create your own masterpiece.

Funnily enough, I’ve been invited to meet the team and try my hand at icing at Bisuiteers on Wednesday so I’ll pass on more compliments then.
