A woman has baked an "almost life-sized" Johnny Depp cake for a competition.

Lara Clarke, an amateur baker from Brownhills, West Midlands, made the Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired creation for the Cake International competition in Birmingham.

Thats an awful lot of eggs and flour.
Very clever, but would not want to eat it, not with the amount of colourings used, let alone the dust...what a waste of food, can't they just use plasticine?

Jack the cake is made from crisped rice and marshmallows, with PVC pipes and stainless steel supports

This is not a cake.

I admit the sculpture is impressive. She did a good job on it.

But it's not a cake.

Embrace the impossible.

Johnny Depp the cake is less likely to prove quite so tempting to female followers. "The cake is designed to be looked at, rather than eaten," said Ms Clarke. "I started it in September so it's probably past its best."

"He's basically made of Rice Crispies, marshmallows and icing. His head is made from a block of solid white chocolate, which I've carved," she said.

I like white chocolate. I'll take his head!

That's a great looking sculpture but rice crispies are not a good ingredient for a cake, ugh.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
