A talented baker has left mouths watering – with her life-sized cake creation of 50 Shades hunk Christian Grey.
The icing on the cake for predicted box office smash 50 Shades Of Grey – released in cinemas this weekend – has been unveiled in the form of Mr Grey
himself, immortalised in Genoise Sponge and sugar paste by baker Rose Dummer.
Women with a sweet tooth can finally get their teeth into the sadomasochism-loving hunk, who was created using 25kg of flour, 340 eggs and
200kg of sugar paste.
The 6ft tall Mr Grey is topless with a pair of cool blue jeans fashioned from icing, with a sneak peek of his boxers, while another edible version exists of
him in a smart grey business suit for those sensitive to the sight of human flesh.
Mother-of-four Rose, 47, constructed the incredible creation at her bakery near Clitheroe, Lancs., for the Cake International Baking show in Manchester.
Ms Dummer said the cake creation is not meant to look like Christian Grey actor Jamie Dornan, but rather the fictional character from E.L.James’ novel instead.
“The cake resembles the character written for the book, rather than Jamie,” she said.
“When I first pitched the theme to Cake International it was just a throwaway idea.
“I really didn’t think it was workable. As the show was scheduled for the week of the movie premiere, it just seemed like a great opportunity to do something relevant and entertaining, so we went with it.”
Full-time baker Rose created the cake alongside her team at the Pendle Cake Company.
She added: “The Pendle Cake Company have been the backbone of this project from the start.
“Lee has become my structural engineer, heavily involved with the preparing the frame with me, and Becca has been organising the kilos of cake and sugar paste that we need to prepare and assemble.”
One of the UK’s top cake designers, Rose is no stranger to creating edible life-size characters.
In November last year, Rose was commissioned by Cake Masters Magazine to make a 7ft Grenadier Guard out of cake to raise money and awareness for the Poppy Appeal.
The creation mirrored her own previous career after she served as the Air Army Corps’s first female helicopter pilot, and subsequently the first female Lynx pilot.
