With the London Olympics in full swing, we’ve been enjoying one London designer’s Jaffa Cake tribute to all things British.

Challenged by McVitie’s to produce some British themed creations from their Jaffa Cakes, designer Dominic Wilcox (dominicwilcox.com) did the country proud, nibbling his way through 30 boxes of Jaffa Cakes to create an edible selection of British landmarks and icons.

Inspired by his friends, who described their own unique ways of eating McVitie’s' iconic cake-cum-biscuit snack, Wilcox used his teeth and fingers to produce the Jaffa Cake-based sculptures, which include a mini Stonehenge, Tower Bridge, Loch Ness Monster and even the white cliffs of Dover.

Unsurprisingly, Wilcox had difficulties not to munch his way through his building materials, saying: “One problem I had was when I got distracted by the radio and then looked back to see I had eaten the Loch Ness monster,” he explained.

However we’re pretty sure he had plenty of fun demolishing the delicious models when the time came.
