Probably like most cooks, Willy Wonka played an influential role in my life. I read the book and watched the movie countless times, and even love the remake. One of my favorite images from the book was the lickable wallpaper. I went as far as to tape candy buttons all over my bedroom wall, until ants insisted otherwise. Now finally, lickable wallpaper
has become a reality in a London elevator.
For four weeks, food technicians and artists planned this project. 1,325 lickable Mcvities Jaffa Cakes were installed on elevator walls. Jaffa Cakes are popular U.K. snack cakes filled with orange and enrobed in chocolate. Every time a Jaffa Cake is licked it is replaced, so eager elevator goers aren't sharing anything but joy.Would you like to take a sweet ride in this elevator?
