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!”

Cake Life 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!

  1. I really hate to put a damper on this, but I can’t help thinking what a waste of all those eggs and everything else that went into the making of this. I love sculptures made of cake. They are usually eaten and enjoyed, but this???? If it is made already in May, then no way is anyone going to eat it in November after the show! Just my opinion. Curious to know if anyone agrees with me 🙂

    • Hello! “The cake was designed to stretch the artist’s boundaries in the art of cake decorating and never intended to be eaten, but enjoyed by thousands as an inspirational feature at Cake International at the NEC in 2 – 4 November.
      It’s also been designed to catch the eye, which it certainly has done. So for the artist, the cost, ingredients and most importantly the design challenge have been well rewarded”
