Train cake marks Heathrow Express anniversary

A giant train-shaped cake made from 60kg of buttercream and 80 sheets of Madeira sponge has been baked by a team of expert bakers to celebrate Heathrow Express’ 15th birthday.

Measuring 1.5m x 4m x 2m, the mammoth confection took 30 hours to assemble on a platform at London’s Paddington station.

The cake will remain at the station until the end of today (June 24) to allow passengers to help themselves to a slice.

Keith Greenfield, managing director of Heathrow Express, said: “Building an enormous carriage-shaped cake with its flavours inspired by the Heathrow Express journey felt like a fitting way to celebrate our 15 years of service.”

Heathrow Express have published the full train cake recipe on its Facebook page.
