Harry and Meghan Cake
Cake decorator Lara Mason has created an incredible life-sized cake of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for this year's Cake International Show!
Lara is a cake artist and a long time supporter of Cake International, regularly winning gold awards.
Lara has previously created Prince George for Cake International, winning gold.
The cake is an 'official Cake International commissioned feature' and will be displayed at the NEC 2 - 4 November 2018 in celebration of the 25th show.
It's All Cake!
Lara made the cake with 300 eggs, 15kg of butter, sugar and flour and 50kg of icing! Lara took 250 hours to complete the cake and said 'The most challenging part of this project was sculpting the very recognisable faces from modelling chocolate. Even the eyes are edible and are made from poured sugar'
What An Honour
Lara said, when Melanie Underwood, event manager, asked her to do the piece for Cake International:
"I was so honoured, I couldn't believe it, and decided there and then it would be the best piece I have ever done"
Melanie Underwood said "I was amazed from start to finish at Lara's professional approach to the commissioned piece, when Lara showed me the faces, I genuinely thought they were photographs and not sculpted!"
CakeFlix thinks the cake is incredible too, well done Lara, and if you want to see the piece and Lara for real, visit the show 2 - 4 November NEC Birmingham UK!
