The Toast Rack & Fried Egg

This is a building cake that was asked to create as a surprise for an architect’s 40th birthday. It’s an iconic building in south Manchester, UK, especially those who are/have been students in the city. It is actually called The Hollings building but has been nicknamed The Toast Rack and the round building next door is The Fried Egg. I simplified the numbers of windows slightly but was particularly keen to recreate the floating “loops”, which I was particularly pleased with :)
