With its lacy straps, intricate bodice detailing and beautiful frills and ruffles, this wedding dress looks like a gown fit for any bride on her big day. However, there’s one big catch that would prevent even the most daring woman from wearing it – it’s made completely out of cake.
The incredible design is so convincing that at first glance, you wouldn’t spot it at all.
Even when close-up photographs are taken, you can barely tell it’s not made from traditional fabrics.
It’s the world’s first ‘weddible’ dress, a tasty little number fashioned by award-winning cake sculptor, Sylvia Elba. Weighing in at a whopping 70kg – that’s just over 11 stone – and standing at an impressive 170cm tall, it’s totally lifesize.
Nevertheless, you wouldn’t want to carry around 11 stone of icing and sponge on your body – and we won’t even mention the melting.
Elba worked on the edible gown with Yvette Marner, founder of Fun N Funky Cakes, and artist Ilinka Rnic, yet it was so ambitious it took the team of three more than 300 hours to complete.
OK, hence you can’t wear it, whereas it would feed plenty of guests at your reception – if you can bring yourself to cut into it.
