6ft Tall Bride Cakes Goes On Sale For $1 Million
What makes a wedding a special occasion comes down to the details, and many are willing to spend lots of money to make sure their special day is a once and a lifetime experience. One British cake maker knows this well and she just revealed her million dollar wedding cake design. She says she made this life-like cake after the image of an Arabian Bride.
This wedding cake by British designer Debbie Wingham, 36, and is edible from head to toe. The dessert is six-foot tall and weighs over 220 pounds and took 10 days to create using over 1000 eggs for the mixture. It’s covered with 100 pounds of lace-textured fondant and embellished with 5,000 hand cut flowers with edible pearl inserts.
According to Wingham the headdress has “five flawless three-carat white diamonds all valued at 200k each, along with VVS1 smaller stones,” the only part of the sculpture which is not ingestible. Wingham was commissioned to make it for Bride Dubai 2018, one of the world’s largest bridal expos.
