Tate & Lyle Sugars have baked a giant cake for their 140th birthday.

The 15-tier masterpiece, almost one layer for every decade, was made to celebrate the milestone year of the Thames Refinery in Silvertown.

Each tier represents the most popular cake trends of the last 14 decades, and comes alongside a report, commissioned by the sugar business, on the future of baking trends.

The report says protein alternatives, levitating cake and virtual reality could be the baking trends of the future

Tate & Lyle’s Nick James said: “Cake has always been at the centre of every celebration and it’s clear from the report tomorrow’s consumer will demand hyper-personalisation with cakes tailored to their specific needs and desires.

“We look forward to celebrating the joy of cake with the nation for another 140 years.”

The cake will be displayed at King’s Cross tomorrow (Thursday), where free samples will be handed out.
