Prince George Cake Presented at Cake International Birmingham 2015
A British amateur baker has presented a life-sized Prince George cake at this year’s Cake International contest in Birmingham.
Lara Mason, 29, spent 30 hours crafting the sponge statue which stands at just under 3ft.
Prince George is wearing the outfit he wore for Princess Charlotte’s christening.
A Tyrannosaurus Rex, a levitating cake and Yoda from Star Wars are among the eye-catching entries at the Cake International competition being held at the NEC near Birmingham.
Lara Mason, from Walsall, West Midlands, said: “The feedback from the judges was they loved what I did.
“But they wanted to see what I could do on a smaller scale because when it’s life sized and you put it on the table, they can’t see all the smaller details and the most important part on a human sculpture is a face.
“I thought I’d do a child. He’s the most famous child in the world and especially cute as well and very, very current.”
She has also created a miniature Kate Middleton in her bid to claim the title at the Cake International bash.
Lara Mason won a gold in 2013 for recreating Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean character, Captain Jack Sparrow.
