Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp have all held the title of People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive – but only one of these superstars is eligible to add “Most Delicious” to his list of honors.
Depp, the star of “Pirates of the Caribbean,” has been immortalized in confectionary, thanks to Lara Clarke, a native of Northern Ireland who is competing in the Cake International competition in Birmingham, England.
At five feet, five inches tall, the cake version of the actor stands about half a foot short of the real thing. Clarke, an enthusiastic amateur baker whose Tasty Cake Facebook page has nearly 12,000 followers, was excited about entering the contest with her biggest creation to date.
“Today has been absolutely amazing, a real dream come true,” she told the London’s Daily Mirror.
Clarke’s past efforts have been inspired by muses real and imaginary – Kate Middleton, Miley Cyrus, Buzz Lightyear and the Grinch. But none have been as large – or garnered as much attention – as her Jack Sparrow creation.
While not technically a cake – Depp’s doppleganger is basically a Rice Krispies treat molded around steel supports and PVC pipes covered in fondant and royal icing – the creation certainly looks impressive.
And win, lose or draw – fans will probably consider it almost as sweet as its inspiration.
