Cake boutique offers artist creations
Visitors staying in luxury London hotels looking to indulge their sweet tooth should consider heading to Cox Cookies & Cake, which is offering a range of products decorated be eminent artists.
Set to coincide with the Frieze art exhibit, Patrick Cox, the co-founder of the company, has persuaded friends and leading artists to design limited edition cupcakes in aid of Amnesty International.
All are available in the Soho shop from Sunday October 16th for £4, with £1 going to the charity for each sale.
Visitors can choose from Gary Hume's Begging For It cake, which features luminous green icing and an edible portrait of hands clasped in prayer.
Marc Quinn's Telescopic Dilated Desire cupcake is a swirl of blue and with an edible iris-like piece of art on top.
Tracey Emin has also contributed with Blinding, which may feature designs similar to her provocative neon piece of the same name.
Finally, Sue Webster and Tim Noble have made their own cake, called I Love Being Black.
The eatery, founded by Mr Cox and Eric Lanard, has received high praise for its delicious treats and counts A-list celebrities among its clientele.
"If anyone was going to make cupcakes even more fabulous it would be Patrick and Eric," commented Kylie Minouge.
Cox Cookies & Cake aims to be a place where fashion meets baking and has recently published a book of its top recipe.
"Sexy stylish design, gorgeous photography and a foreword by Sir Elton John and David Furnish make this a cookbook like no other," explains the company.
