6ft UK map created from sweets

Artist Paul Baker, from London, has used more than 4,000 sweets to make a detailed map of the UK. Each region of the UK uses the sweets which were most popular locally, such as liquorice in Scotland and jelly babies in the MIdlands.

Paul, 49, even used treats like liquorice allsorts and humbugs to make miniature models of landmarks like Stonehenge, the Angel of the North, Tower Bridge and a dolly mixture Loch Ness Monster. The two metre long map was commissioned by Taveners Proper Sweets and Paul says it took him several weeks to complete.

But I guess that is what happens when you work on a "one for the art, one for me" rule.

Have some sweets!!
