A London bakery has been forced to make a public appeal for people to stop contacting them after making a cake out of edible Lego bricks.

The South East London bakery 'Cupcakes by SJ', posted on Facebook after being flooded with requests for similar cakes as to an image of one which went viral.

The colourful cake was created for a wedding and gathering over 140,000 likes and 69,000 shares on Facebook in a matter of days from the bakery’s page.

Writing on Facebook, the bakery said: "As an answer to most people's questions, I am based in SE London and unable to deliver outside of this area.

"We are a family who love to bake and create cakes for family, friends and friends of friends.

"We do not have a shop or website or any other form of pictures other than those on this page, which was created at the request of friends purely to see what we'd been creating.

"While all requests are seriously considered, I had no idea one picture would create the reaction and influx that it has in the last 2 days and am sorry that many requests are not possible to fulfil.

"I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your kind comments, likes and shares it is completely mind blowing and left my parents and I lost for words."
