Chef Tanys Pullin spent 90 hours carving a sculpture of a crown out of a gigantic half-ton block of cheddar cheese.
"I'm elated but it was very daunting," she said. "Can you imagine being given a massive round cheese and told you have to go into a fridge on one of the hottest days of the year to carve it?"
A 'cheese wedding cake' expert is hoping to smash the world record for the largest cheese sculpture with her half-ton cheddar crown. Cordon Bleu trained chef Tanys Pullin, 46, spent 90 hours crafting it out of a 1,322lb block of Farmhouse Cheddar. She carved the sculpture in the shape of a crown to mark the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation on June 2.
