We saw some marvellously unrevolting recipes this Roald Dahl Day - but the Cake Dahls character-inspired bakes were truly fantastic...

With this year's ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it seems very fitting that Roald Dahl Day 2014 was celebrated with more than a few sweet treats...

Particularly in Ireland, where a few amazingly talented bakers took inspiration from some of Roald Dahl's best-loved characters - and turned them into edible masterpieces.

Here are just a few highlights from The Cake Dahls exhibition - including (above, from left to right) Gilian Tims' Witches inspired cake, Tanya Ross's take on The Enormous Crocodile and Niamh Geraghty's The BFG.

Here are a few more delicious cakey treats - to see all the bakes, take a look at the Cake Dahls website.
