How do you position yourself to win an international cake competition in today’s celebrity-obsessed world? By baking a life-sized cake of Jennifer Lawrence, of course.
Lara Clarke, a 28-year-old semi-professional baker from Walsall, England won the 2013 Cake International Competition, one of the biggest cake baking and decorating contests in the world with this five and a half foot tall Johnny Depp Cake. This year she chose Lawrence as her subject.
“Ms Clarke researched the actress's height, waist and bust measurements online and claims the 5ft 10in cake is exactly life-sized.” She also switched her medium and actually made a sponge cake this year. Her Depp cake caused controversy in 2013 because it was made of crisped rice and marshmallows—like a giant Rice Krispy treat. This year she went with an old-school recipe, which included 150 eggs, 22 pounds of flour, 22 pounds of butter and 22 pounds of sugar.
