2,000 people to feast on giant cupcake in London on Thursday

Wow, Covent Garden is the place to be on Thursday, clearly: (via Londonist)

In truth, the foodies who flock to Covent Garden’s Real Food Market are less hungry predators and more relaxed ‘grazers’, casually ambling around the area’s many food stalls. A little taste of that olive oil, some of those fat grilled scallops and, oh why not, a great hunk of that gluten-free cake over there please.

For those visiting on Thursday 16th July, Covent Garden’s Real Food Market will see a massive cupcake arrive in its midst. Measuring 1.25m by 2m, and designed by Culinary Olympic winner Michelle Wibowo, the giant cake is the world’s largest, feeding up to 2000 people.

Our advice? Be prepared. Take a spoon, a doggy bag and an empty stomach.

Will it be as big as the giant cupcake building in the Visa ad? Or the cupcake cars? We shall find out!
