Using half a billion sprinkles, 10,000 marshmallows and other cake decorations, The Baking of Adam was born. Modelled after The Creation of Adam, the mural masterpiece by Italian artist Michelangelo, it is a mind-boggling feat of patience, creativity and perseverance. It took 168 hours to complete the 5.7 meters wide by 2.8 meters tall work of edible art.

Created by award winning food artist Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art, The Baking of Adam was commissioned by the baking company Cake Angels. Wibowo states, "Britain is currently gripped by baking fever with a real emphasis on unique designs and showmanship. When we learnt about Michelangelo's anniversary celebrations, we really wanted to join in and challenge the boundaries of cake design by immortalising his most heavenly creation in our own special way, using our range of versatile and vibrant sprinkles, proving that even cake can become a fantastic art canvas."
