Bride creates life-size wedding cake shaped like her and her husband
Preparing for a wedding is stressful enough, but one U.K. bride decided to amp things up about 50 notches by baking her own wedding cake.
And no, she didn't go with a simple sheet cake, or even a tiered cake. Instead, the baking enthusiast opted to make a life-size version of her and her husband-to-be.
Northern Ireland native Lara Mason has been baking as a hobby for four years, including some pretty intricate designs. "I have made loads of life-size cakes before with Prince George and Jennifer Lawrence being my most recognized," she told Express and Star.
The final product — which looks remarkably like her and her husband — took three days and weighed over 300 pounds between the two cakes. She's holding a cocktail glass, while husband Nikki Mason wears a beer funnel hat. It took over 40 pounds of icing and 40 pounds of chocolate cake to master.
"I created myself as the happy bride on our wedding day with Nikki drinking cans of lager from a 'marriage survival kit' as a way of coping with getting married to me," she told the Western Press. "It took me around 20 hours to create where usually I would spend about 150 hours on a cake of that size so it was a little rushed."
"After having the competition and making Prince George the week before I only had three days to make this one. Everyone loved it though, my hubby was especially proud that I got it done in the short time scale."
And as for how it tasted? Well, the Masons never got to try her hard work.
"I actually left the cake at the [reception hall] for the players to cut up and enjoy," she added.
But all the hard work was worth it to show off a cake that demonstrated their unique personalities. "Everyone loved the cake. It was quirky and original, just like us really."
