What happens when a non-climber designs a climbing-themed cake for a climber? Negligence and danger, if a recent YouTube video from Jake Davis is anything to go by. Bad belaying, poor footwork, ropes for harnesses and jelly bootlaces for ropes; anything goes when climbing is depicted in cake form. Jake assesses the safety, aesthetics and realisticness of each design, with some cutting commentary. If ever there's a Climbing Cake Week on Great British Bake Off, we know who the judge should be. Move over Paul Hollywood...
Here's a selection of quotes from Jake, to give you a taster:
'I dont really know anything about cake, and I don't even like cake that much, but I do like climbing.'
'I've seen this in real life, which is tough, but I think it's even tougher to see it rendered into icing.'
'They've narcissistically spelled-out their names in rope.'
