Happy birthday Lutyens

Cathedral model

Anyone for a slice of cathedral?

Today is architect Sir Edwin Lutyens‘s birthday. Born in 1869, he would have been 138 in the highly unlikely event that he was still around today.

I don’t know if anybody out there is up to the challenge, but I think that Angela had the right idea in her blog about potentially edible buildings in Liverpool. The only suitable way to mark the occasion would be with a cathedral-shaped cake, ideally the size of the model in the Walker’s exhibition The cathedral that never was (I’m being practical, not greedy – the cake needs to be big to fit all the candles on).

Or you could just treat yourself to a normal size piece of cake in the Walker cafe in Lutyens’s honour if you don’t have an industrial size oven of course.
