The 'Bake Your Dreams Come True' campaign launches today with an experiential ‘Bank of Baking’ at the Truman Brewery in East London, featuring more than 100 items of edible art made by food artists Bompas & Parr.

The bank includes coins, banknotes, gold bars and a safe and a cash machine, all made of cakes and biscuits

The print and digital advertising campaign, created by Brave, includes full-page advertorials in the April and May issues of magazines such as Tastes So Good, Good Food magazine and Delicious. There is also a display banner campaign with Mumsnet and Facebook.

The campaign offers baking entrepreneurs advice from financial experts, and the chance to win £5,000 to help launch a baking business, through a competition on Tate & Lyle product packs.

At the edible bank, bakers can share their business plans with a panel of business advisers.

Mischief PR devised the creative idea and the "edible bank" experiential elements.
