Would You Eat A Life-Size Kim Kardashian Cake?

You can now have your cake that looks like Kim Kardashian and eat it, too. The real question is: would you actually want a slice of a life-sized Kim K cake? According to Hello Giggles, British cake maker Debbie Wingham created a 3-D printed cake version of Kardashian that is almost too life-like to eat. Seriously, it’s scary how real this cake looks.
On Instagram, the “celebrity haute couture designer turned caketress” explained that the cake wasn’t actually made for Kardashian, but for a Kim K doppelgänger. Wingham used Kardashian’s likeness to make sure the features were just right. To prove how real this cake looked, Wingham posted close-up photos of the cake’s eyes, hair, and backside. While it’s not really supposed to look like Kim, it’s hard not to see the similarities. As Wingham wrote on Instagram, though, “there is only one @kimkardashian” and as good as this cake looks, it isn’t her.
“I tried a pioneering technique and 3D printed KKW’s face in edible materials,” Wingham captioned the photos, which show the step-by-step process of making the cake. She then used modeling chocolate mixed with sugarpaste (a moldable sugar dough) to “adapt the features to make my Kim K look alike client.” Wingham even did a little contouring to the cake’s face with “edible powders.” Perhaps Kardashian could expand her KKW Beauty line to include a cake contouring kit next?
When designing Kim K’s cake body, Wingham used “85 boxes of rice crispy cereal, and over 30,000 baby marshmallows,” according to Metro.co.uk, along with 33 pounds of fondant. Wingham also used nearly $2 million worth of Cartier diamonds to make sure this cake, which took 10 days to finish, was accessorized right. If that sounds like a lot of money, don’t worry — Wingham prides herself on being the cake maker to the rich and famous, baking for the likes of Drake and Katy Perry, and told Metro.co.uk that she creates some of the most expensive cakes in the world.
While it might be the first time Kardashian got the life-size cake treatment, it’s not the first time her likeness has been 3-D printed, such as the nude sculpture made for husband Kanye West’s “Famous” video. She told WWD that she didn’t see West’s “Famous” video before it debuted, but approved of her likeness. “I did that kind of on purpose because I love to be surprised,” she said in 2016. “It was, like, three, four months in the making, so I obviously knew it was going on, but I didn’t actually see the final cut until he debuted it at The Forum. It was really cool.” Hopefully, she’ll let the world know how she feels about this 3-D likeness soon.
If you like what you see, and want your own life-size cake (and don’t mind shelling out a pretty penny), Wingham is happy to make it for you. Before her Kardashian cake, she designed a full-size hazelnut-flavored cake of an Arabian bride, covered in over two thousand sugar flowers and over a thousand sugar pearls. She called it the “million dollar bride.”
Well, it certainly looks like a million bucks, but is it too good-looking to eat? We’ll let you decide.
