Today marks the start of Covent Gardens’ latest collaboration in time for the Christmas season. London gifting company, Biscuiteers, has created a biscuit replica of the iconic Covent Garden market building.
Weighing just over 10kg, it has been piped by hand and will be on display until the 24th of December.
Construction took two of the gifting company employees over 100 hours which includes the West Plaza Christmas tree.

The structure’s details include those as small as those on the real market building garlands and mimics the specific Christmas theme Covent Garden will have this year.
Visitors can witness the creation while having the option to purchase a Biscuiteers Covent Garden biscuit tin, DIY gingerbread kit or other Biscuiteer favourites.
