Dr Oetker launches 'world's first' edible Christmas jumper

Global food manufacturer Dr Oetker has teamed up with Essex baker Juliet Sear to launch the "world's first" edible Christmas jumper in the UK. The festive creation took 50 hours to make and used 10kg of icing, 5kg of marzipan, 1kg of chocolate and a "large sprinkle of Christmas" magic.

The baker, who created the jumper, has previously baked special cakes for celebrities including: Radio 1 breakfast show host Nick Grimshaw, ITV programmes This Morning and Loose Women and Prince Harry. She said it was "brilliant" to work with the Dr Oetker team on the #eatmyjumper creation.

Dr. Oetker is encouraging bakers from all across the UK to share their family's festive cakes and recipes on the brand's Twitter page @DrOetkerBakes using #EatMyJumper.

Dr Oetker posted: "We are very excited to share with you, the world's first edible Christmas Jumper! This beauty took 50 painstaking hours to complete using a selection of Dr Oetker products including Regal-Ice, Marzipan and Chocolate. Share if you'd dare to wear it to your Christmas party."
