The Taj Mahal of Toast is Precisely What it Sounds Like, Needs Marmalade

The Taj Mahal is one of the world’s most treasured structures. The Taj Mahal of toast is bread that has been baked for a few minutes and designed to look like a fantastic building in miniature form.

Mashable’s Tim Chester directs our attention to a toast artist’s rendering of a famed mausoleum that sits in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

The toast version, however, sits depressingly on a street corner in Peckham, London.

Here it is in all its glory thanks to a tweet from Tom McKenzie:

It’s at this point that we have to warn the proud people of Peckham as to the obvious dangers of toast left on the street:

Thankfully, McKenzie spoke to Mashable and described the all-too-brief occurrence that sat out on a local street: “‘As far as I'm aware, no one knows who made it yet,’ Tom McKenzie, who discovered and duly tweeted the carb creation at the end of Queens Road in the south London district, told Mashable. He said it vanished within 48 hours and he's never seen anything like it before.”

Any gang currently bumping around in a Mystery Machine, you have your job cut out for you.

If true, this means someone has a complete disregard for what seems like delicious toast. And, yes, they also possess amazing bread architecture skills.

So, to that British maestro, take a bow. Your work has reached those far beyond your shores.
