Yorkshire Day a piece of cake
Published 01/08/2014 | 00:29
The people at Yorkshire Tea have brewed up a sweet treat to mark the 39th annual Yorkshire Day.
The Yorkshire Tea Party at King's Cross station, the capital's gateway to the county, includes a giant installation featuring cake-a-likes of famous Yorkshire folk such as Mel B, Dame Judi Dench, Louis Tomlinson and Jarvis Cocker, four of the celebrities who appear in a list of the nation's top 10 favourite Yorkies.
Others include Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, louder-than-life Brian Blessed, opera singer Lesley Garrett and magician Paul Daniels. Even politicians Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband made it into the top 10 - despite not being Yorkshire born and bred, the people of the county still see them as one of their own.
The Yorkshire Tea Party cake installation was created by food artist, Connie Viney, who is famed for creating larger-than-life edible art, including 8ft tall cakes that you can walk inside and birthday cakes that send tweets.
