A WELLS lady has created an unusual culinary masterpiece out of cheese.

Tanys Pullin, creative consultant at Ford Farm, a traditional west country farmhouse cheesemaker, has carved a military Mark IV tank.

It is created out of different varieties of Cheddar made at the dairy on behalf of the Royal Tank Regiment based in Salisbury.

The cake was commissioned by Captain Steven Bee to honour his Regiment’s most celebrated battle, the Battle of Cambrai in 1917. It was served at a dinner held on November 19, to mark the the eve of the Battle of Cambrai nearly which took place 100-years-ago, at the Officers’ Mess in Winterbourne Gunner.

Officers Mess dinners are a regular feature of this Regiment and the military and are designed to educate the current members about its history as well as providing an opportunity to remember and honour their forebears.

Captain Bee said: “We wanted to do something a bit different to mark this occasion and to make it special for the 25 who attended. The cake looked absolutely spectacular and provided a really memorable and novel way to enjoy the West Country cheese course.”

Tanys Pullin has established a widespread reputation in the South West for carving celebration cakes made from Ford Farm cheese. Her repertoire includes a celebration cake for Mary Berry at the Wells Literary Festival last month, a chocolate cheese wedding cake as well as a crown sculpture carved from a half tonne piece of cheddar.
