The eight portraits represent a different decade of Her Majesty’s reign from 1950 to 2020. From the classic madeira signifying the ongoing rationing of the 1950s, to a rainbow Jubilee cake symbolising the UK’s inclusive society of today, each cake features an iconic moment and is reflective of popular baking trends during that time.
The baked masterpieces were displayed at Dr. Oetker’ s pop-up gallery Cakes of the Crown at Castle fine art in Windsor on 26 May.
Jen Brown, head of cake at Dr. Oetker, said: “The Platinum Jubilee is set to be a huge event this year, with many Brits looking to make the most of the double bank holiday. Whether it’s attending street parties, cooking up a storm from the comfort of your own home or attending official events, we know that baking will be at the heart of the country’s celebrations.
“Here at Dr. Oetker, we wanted to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service with something truly remarkable. Just as times have changed during her 70-year reign, so have our favourite bakes, and the portraits perfectly reflect the different baking trends from over the years.”
