An art piece made out of sugar, depicting mini-hamburgers is seen at an exhibition entitled 'Art you can Eat... Cake Britain' in a central London gallery, Friday Aug. 27, 2010. The exhibition, according to the organizers is the world's first ever entirely edible art exhibition and teamed the UK's most creative bakers with artists who want to create art using sugar, cake and other sweet stuff. All exhibits will be devoured over the three days by visitors to the exhibition and proceeds will go to charity organizations. AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis.
LONDON.- From Tate Modern to Tate Britain, the name Tate is synonymous with art and now Tate & Lyle Sugars, brings you Cake Britain, the World’s first ever entirely edible art exhibition. The exhibition will team the UK’s most creative bakers with artists and creatives who want to create with sugar. The concept by Mad Artists Tea Party is sponsored by Tate & Lyle Sugars and the exhibition, with works interpreting the meaning of FAIR, will be at The Future Gallery, 5 Great Newport Street, London, from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th.

Cake Britain is the World’s first-ever edible art exhibition, at which the UK’s most creative bakers and food artists are presenting their mouth-watering works interpreting the meaning of FAIR with Fairtrade sugar as the main ingredient.

Think Pop Art, Impressionism or Abstract Expressionism but swap canvas for sugar and seriousness for a sense of contagious enthusiasm. The Cake Britain exhibition is to help encourage creativity with food and will feature fantastic works of food art by renowned cake-ists and artists including David A Smith, described as a ‘young and highly promising artist’ by the Guardian; Prudence Staite, who can create anything you can think of from food; Jellymongers - Bompas & Parr, who design spectacular food experiences often working on an architectural scale and the aptly named cake-ists: Crumbs & Dollies and Lily Vanilli. Like many exhibitions, all the exhibits will be available for sale but unlike most, they will be eaten on the final day of the exhibition.

The initiative is sponsored by Tate & Lyle Sugars, in support of its switch to Fairtrade, which is fair to traders and consumers because it's no extra cost), and brought to you by the Mad Artists Tea Party.

The exhibition runs from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th August 2010, 10am-6pm at The Future Gallery, 5 Great Newport Street, London WC2

In a fair trade off, entry to the exhibition is free in exchange for a fair donation to the charities: Richard House, We Make Peace, and the Fairtrade Foundation. Other renowned cake-ists and artists showing at the exhibition include: David A Smith; George Morton-Clark; Jellymongers - Bompas & Parr (who design spectacular food experiences often working on an architectural scale); StenSoul and Lily Vanilli.
