Tate & Lyle sugars tasting house

Yesterday I went to the Tate and Lyle sugars tasting house, press preview...

"Coinciding with the launch of their 'taste experience' range of golden and brown sugars, Tate and Lyle are giving Londoners the rare opportunity to visit their Tasting House in Soho - just be sure you don't have a dentist appointment booked for the next day. Visitors will enter a Hansel and Gretel-esque house, where there will be edible furnishings, fluffy macaroon banisters, cupcake fairy lights, carpets made from cake and windowsills built from fudge alone. With eight different tasting rooms, there will be over 100 different types of edible art that are all based around the new range of sugars."

The Soho based cake hotel was created by a team of 14 cake makers that spent over 2,000 hours baking, 900 hours decorating and used more than 600 kilos of Taste Experience sugar. Inspired by regions around the world, the eight new and distinctly different fair trade sugars showcase the diversity of flavour and texture available exclusively from cane sugar.

Upon arriving I got to taste all the sugars from the lightest golden caster sugar to the dark Muscovado all with subtle flavour differences, texture and appearance, my favourite being the Golden syrup sugar!

The sugar tasting was housed in the British Inspired room, that had the most fantastic edible vase full of sugar flowers and cake stands full of sugary sweet treats...

Then I headed upstairs past the rows and rows of coloured macarons, tasting a couple along the way!...

To my favourite tasting room, the Mediterranean inspired bedroom, that had the prettiest edible cushions on the bed...

Meringue draped chandeliers, a rainbow rug made from 1,081 meringues and a bath filled with caramel-coated popcorn...

Window sills adorned with glittered frilled cupcakes and decadent pearly ones...

I can't wait to try out the new Tate and Lyle sugars in my Easter baking!
