The Cake Dahls 13 - 14 Sep 2014

A very special exhibition - of cake!
Some of Ireland's best cake artists have joined together to bring the worlds and characters of Roald Dahl alive with an exhibition of cakes.

Niamh Geraghty of Perfectionist Confectionist has gathered together 60 cake artists from all over Ireland to celebrate Roald Dahl Day on September 13th and the 50th anniversary of the publishing of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. These baking and confectionary wizards will recreate the wonderful world of Roald Dahl and Sir Quentin Blake, all in the delicious medium of cake and sugar!

Known collectively as 'The Cake Dahls', the cake artists will bring to life some of Dahl's best loved characters including The Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Twits, Charlie and many more.

Here's a look at four of the cakes (yes - they really are all cakes) featuring in the exhibition!
