If you thought your wedding cake was original, think again. An amateur baker in Britain DIY'd her own wedding cake — and it's a life-size replica of her and her groom.
When Lara Mason, who famously baked a life-size cake that looked like Prince George, was planning her November 14 wedding, she naturally decided to make use of her own talents. She made a 309-pound buttercream wedding cake that looks just like her and her hubby for their nuptials. Why? Because a boring regular cake just won't do for the baker who created this:
"I am getting a name for myself as the lady who makes the life-size people cakes, I couldn’t have a three-tier ivory cake with roses,” Mason told BuzzFeed Life.
Mason, who goes by Tasty Cakes on social media, won the gold prize at Birmingham's Cake International show for her life-size Prince George cake. She's also made life-size cakes of Katniss Everdeen and Captain Jack Sparrow.
While those celebrity cakes were impressive, this cake definitely takes it to the next level. Maybe because it is startlingly identical to the couple.
It took 20 hours over the course of three days to make this buttercream wonder. Mason told BuzzFeed that most of the time was dedicated to sculpting the faces. Mason also added a "marriage survival kit" on her cake-husband that includes two cans of Coors Light.
So, how did the guests handle the cake's unveiling? Apparently, they weren't even slightly fazed.
“I caught one of my husband’s friends biting my nose at one point," Mason said.
Could life-size buttercream couples become a new wedding-cake trend? Depends on whether or not you're comfortable with all your guests biting off your nose.
