Making torch is a piece of cake for chef
To celebrate the flame's arrival, Stoke Park's chef, Chris Wheeler, set himself the challenge of recreating an edible version of the torch.
Mr Wheeler used a mould to bake a Victoria sponge in the shape of the torch before icing it with buttercream. The look was finished off when Chris sprayed the cake with edible gold.
Mr Wheeler said: "I was really proud to hold the torch and I think I can say I am the first UK chef to do so - quite something. Recreating a cake version of it was definitely an interesting challenge but I'm happy with the result."
The torch was recreated for the Golf Captain's Day tournament to raise money for Sportsaid.
