Johnny Depp Cake: Check Out the Edible Captain Jack Sparrow [IMAGE]By: Erika Watts - November 10, 2013
“Life-size Johnny Depp cake.” Is there any better combination of words in the English language for most women? Probably not, and this is exactly what one woman from England came up with for a baking contest. Rather than submit a more traditional tiered cake, Lara Clarke decided to make an almost life-sized version of Johnny Depp.
Clarke’s Johnny Depp cake stands at five feet, five inches tall, just five inches shy of the non-edible Depp’s height. Let’s just say that the cake was absolutely a labor of love, as it took the young woman 90 hours to complete.
Clarke, who has only been baking specialized cakes for two years and learned her skills from YouTube, came up with this delicious concoction after one of her friends suggested she enter the cake competition. “One of my friends was on the phone and said I should enter Cake International. At the time I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean,” Clarke said. “I was watching Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, and I thought he would make the perfect cake.”
She was right. Check out the finished product Clarke posted to her Facebook page Tasty Cakes below.
