Kyton’s Bakery has constructed a fully operational, Lamington-inspired ferris wheel for their stand at this year’s Royal Adelaide Show.
The well-known South Australian bakery’s stall will sit in the Taste SA pavilion.
If you can correctly guess how many times Larry the Lamington and his friends will round the ferris wheel throughout the duration of the show, you’ll be on the receiving end of a year’s supply of Kytons Lamingtons.
The Kytons Bakery has been a family name for over 80 years, and has been owned by Darren and Sharon Sutton since 2003.
Sons Jamie and Josh do not have the same passion for baking, however do have a keen interest in electronics, which is what inspired this year’s stand.
The ferris wheel features the bakery mascot in the centre, whilst the wheels, legs and gondolas are built from packaging for Kytons new product, a single “Go & Go” Lamington box.
The ferris wheel also features iconic toy South Australian animals purchased from the Monarto Zoo.
Each year, the Kytons stand features a quirky competition to attract attention and engage the public.
This year’s feature is the result of two months of family brainstorming, designing, 3D printing, shopping in unexpected places, and electronic programming.
The Kytons Bakery stand in the Taste SA pavilion will also feature Lamington dipping demonstrations, and Larry the Lamington (the seven foot tall mascot who comes alive each day for the mascot parade).
Kytons is also a stop on the very popular Yellow Brick Road.
