Boat lifts? They’re a piece of cake!
NEVER MIND THE 24-metre high rotating boat lift in the background, this is a 22-truffle- high chocolate cake model of the iconic Falkirk Wheel, complete with chocolate copies of the trip- boats Antonine and Archimedes. The cake was created for Cake Fest Scotland, a celebration forming part of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design which featured 100 Scottish landmarks recreated in cake.
It was created by Scottish Canals and local Falkirk chocolatier Michael Maley, incorporating ‘Falkirk Fancies’ – chocolates designed by local resident Louisa Liddell combining both of Scotland’s national drinks: Whisky and Irn-Bru (whose inventor was, in fact, a Falkirk man).
