City envy: we want a cake maze like LA

Flo Wales Bonner

The organisers of Break Bread, a free installation that's just opened in a Downtown Los Angeles gallery, call it 'sugar-coated consumerism in a frosted ghetto'. We'd have gone for 'OMFG, A GIANT CAKE PALACE!!!' The show features a 7,500-square-foot cake maze, complete with six cake chambers covered floor-to-ceiling in icing, and a pastel-coloured ice cream truck.

Sadly, you can't just lick the walls as if you were in a real-life Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, because a) germs and b) the cake is fake - it's made from polyfoam and acrylic. But to up the sugar ante, the exhibition will host a cherry-picked selection of pop- ups from local confectioners and bakers. We may have 'Bake Off', but they have a whole Bake House. You win, America, you win. 

We also want New York's boozy accounts and a cheese delivery service like Paris
