The sweetest competition? Baking Fan wins cake of her face
By Georgina Vincent on Monday, October 29, 2018
With the Great British Bake Off finale airing tomorrow night delicious treats seem to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue.
Thanks to a competition run by British syrup brand Lyle’s Golden Syrup, Emma Belben of Somerset has been the lucky recipient of her very own baked doppelganger, so she can have her cake and eat it too!
The edible bust was created by cake artist Lara Mason who hit the news earlier in the year ahead of the Royal Wedding with her life-size Harry and Meghan cake.
Emma’s uncanny cake took an extraordinary 6 days to make, contains 1.5kg of Lyle’s Golden Syrup®, 40 eggs, 2kg flour, 1kg of Tate & Lyle Sugar®, 2kg Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar and weighs in at a whopping 12kg.
Competition winner Emma said, “I couldn’t believe my luck when I found out I’d won the opportunity to have a cake made of myself. I’ll be watching the final this week with a slice of my face in hand – how surreal! I’m also a Brownie Leader, and I know the kids are going to love this when I bring it in on Wednesday.”
