A Dessert Festival coming to London is dedicating an entire room to chocolate... including a melted chocolate wall.

Yep, you read that right, the chocolate zone at London Dessert Festival promises a wall covered in the molten good stuff — as well as chocolate infused 'tasting orbs', top chocolatiers, and a chocolate wrapping room covered top to bottom in foil. Holy Cacao.

Among the other experiential dessert sections is a 'frozen' zone (where you can taste ice cream flavoured bubbles and get rained on by sprinkles) and a 'patisserie' zone, scented with cinnamon and cookie dough, and decorated in cherry blossoms.

There’s also a vegan zone, for dairy-free desserts. Farewell summer body.

Over 20 brands are taking part in the two-day even at Spitalfields at the Old Truman Brewery in east London, including Miki’s Paradise (freakshakes and crepes), Wheelcake Island (fluffy Taiwanese pancakes) Yogland (forzen treats), Nosteagia (bubble waffles and bubble tea) and Cafe Forty One (masters of the vegan dessert).
