Two kilos of sugar, five kilos of icing, one and a half kilos of flour, 20 man hours and over 40 Glasgow landmarks - all have combined to make the city's biggest and best cake!
Former Miss Scotland Nieve Jennings unveiled a towering Glasgow Cake today to celebrate the arrival of TreatTicket.com, Glasgow's new daily deal website.
TreatTicket.com sought out the city's best bakers and confectioners to create a treat spectacular enough to mark the website's launch in Glasgow - bringing on the team at Cake in a Box to design the massive cake tribute to Glasgow.
