Mammoth of a cake honors Prince William and Kate Middleton

Michelle Wibowo

Is there such a thing as too realistic?

Baker Michelle Wibowo spent 80 hours sculpting a tasty homage to Prince William and equally sweet Kate Middleton for the Ideal Home Show Cake competetion. The fruitcake, a royal twist on the classic tiered wedding cake, is covered in apricot jam and made up of more than 20 pounds of marzipan and 10 pounds of icing sugar.

"It was really a challenge for me to do this cake," Wibowo wrote on her Website. "It's a hard work, but I really enjoyed making it."
