Food in the news: Prince William and Kate Middleton immortalised in cake?

from the BBC Website

From BBC.co.uk

A Sussex woman has created a cake in the likeness of Prince William and Kate Middleton to mark the couple’s wedding.

Michelle Wibowo, of Burgess Hill, West Sussex, spent 80 hours sculpting the fruit cake into busts of the prince and Miss Middleton.

The pair have been covered with apricot jam, 10kg (22lb) of marzipan and 10kg (22lb) of icing sugar.

The cake has also been airbrushed with colours to make the royal couple’s features more realistic.

The creation will be the centrepiece of a royal themed wedding cake competition at the Ideal Home Show at Earls Court, west London.

Ms Wibowo, who runs a firm called Sugarart, said: “I used this cake competition as a great opportunity to do something different, other than the usual traditional decorated round tiered cake people normally expect for a wedding cake.

“It was really a challenge for me to do this cake. It’s hard work, but I really enjoyed making it.”

Isn’t it amazing what they can do with cake these days?

Though I can’t help but feeling that this is all a bit creepy… Not to mention tacky!
