Pimm’s has made a replica of Buckingham Palace out of jelly complete with jelly corgis, which will be served at the Queen’s 90th birthday lunch on Sunday.

The metre long wobbly replica weighing 35kg was made with Pimm’s No.1 Cup and Champagne and will take centre stage at The Patron’s Lunch on The Mall.

It took a team of three jelly artists led by Tim Simpson 200 hours to create the edible landmark from a model of the famous façade, which was turned into a mould.

“Buckingham Palace is one of the most recognisable buildings in the world and the balcony has hosted some of the nation’s favourite moments, so the pressure was on. We’re delighted with how it turned out,” Simpson said.

Some 10,000 guests are expected to attend a street party on The Mall on Sunday marking Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebrations, where around 30,000 glasses of Pimm’s are due to be served.

Invitees to The Patron’s Lunch from charities and organisations supported by the Queen will enjoy a picnic at tables running the length of The Mall, which will be lined with Union Jacks.

Fully prepared, Pimm’s has geared up 130 bartenders, 180 kegs of Pimm’s and 5,400kg of ice for the occasion, with revellers due to congregate in St James’s Park and Green Park in addition to The Mall.

“We’re honoured to be the official tipple of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at The Patron’s Lunch, and pay tribute to her extraordinary contribution to community and country,” Pimm’s brand manager Joanna Segesser said.

“Pimm’s is proud to have been an integral part of Great British celebrations since the 1840s and we encourage the public to celebrate this weekend with their own street party and have a go at making their own Pimm’s Royale jelly,” she added.
