Prolific architectural jellymongers Bompass and Parr have been on a roll with their installations, but their latest offering – a crazy golf course on the roof of Selfridges London – is probably among the most ambitious. Inspired by the roof displays that the store used to have back in the 1930s, one of which included a mini golf course, each obstacle on the 9-hole course will take the form of a cake representing a London landmark.
Expect to navigate past a sugary Gherkin, icing-clad Big Ben and of course, in true Jubilee spirit (just in case you hadn’t had your fill), a baked Buckingham Palace. And if after a hard day’s golfing all that cake has your sweet tooth salivating, head across to the rooftop Daylesford Café where you can sample some 100% organic cakey goodness during afternoon tea from 12pm each day.
