Cake Fame for The Inn at John O’Groats

GLM were pleased to see the Inn at John O’Groats built again but this time in that well-known building material – cake.

The Inn featured on the map for Simon Preston’s Cake Fest Scotland that took place in September at Cowane’s Hospital, Stirling as part of the Festival of Architecture 2016. Teams from across Scotland created buildings and iconic structures from across Scotland which, when brought together, formed a fully edible giant map of Scotland.

Creations included the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Skara Brae, Dumbarton Castle and the bright colours of GLM’s The Inn at John O’Groats.

Cake Fest featured on BBC’s The One Show on 26th October 2016. The map can be seen at 40 minutes at this link here(only available until 24th November 2016)
