Edible Archaeology: The Twelve Apostles

1 min read


In  CA 294,  I read a letter from an archaeological illustrator called Sarah Bailie, who also makes heritage-themed cakes. You had also printed a photo of her Callanish Stone Circle cake. As I was planning my own special birthday party, I emailed her to ask where she lived, hoping it would be within driving distance. It was! She made a birthday cake for me featuring my local stone circle (the Twelve Apostles), and kindly delivered it at a halfway meeting point. Everyone at my party love the cake, which was both delicious and beautiful. I heartily recommend Sarah to anyone who lives reasonably near Glasgow, and wants an unusual cake. Her email address was give in in issue 294, but here it is again: [email protected]
