Baker Makes Life-Size ‘Cake Middleton’

Jul 21 2013, 9:54am CDT | by ABC News Radio

Nadine Moon/Who Made The Cake!(HOUSTON) -- The Great Kate Wait has never been more delicious.

In anticipation of the royal baby, a Houston cake designer constructed an edible life-size model of Kate Middleton cradling the heir-to-be.

“I think everyone loves Princess Kate’s story, it’s everyone’s fairy tale,” Who Made The Cake! owner Nadine Moon told ABCNews.com. “I think she’s such an inspiration to so many brides, and we thought it was a neat thing to honor her and do a life-size tribute to her in cake and Rice Krispies Treats with the baby.”

Cake Middleton stands tall at 5 feet 6 inches, and weighs more than 200 pounds, Moon said.

To create the full-scale replica, Moon and her team of eight first created the framework for the cake with PVC piping and wood support, before sculpting Kate’s torso out of Rice Krispies Treats.

Then, the team built Kate out of dense butter pound cake topped with layers of vanilla and amaretto butter cream frosting before covering her in a white chocolate fondant.

Instead of recreating Kate’s iconic Alexander McQueen wedding dress, she designed a dove gray satin colored gown with lace accents and silver metallic sparkle she hand-painted for the duchess to wear. Moon also worked to ensure Kate’s hair was perfectly coiffed by hand painting it as well.

Kate and Prince William’s bundle-of-joy got also royal treatment.

“The baby is wrapped in a blanket, but you can see the little face peeking out,” Moon said. “There’s also a gold HRH monogram on the blanket.”

Moon said she’s hoping the royal baby is a girl.

The life-size cake took Moon and her team a week to build before it went on display Saturday at the Bridal Extravaganza Show in Houston. The show’s officials have reached out to Kensington Palace to see if the mom-to-be and the royal family would like the cake shipped across the pond.

“If Kensington Palace says yes, it will be shipped off to London,” Moon said. “I would need to go with it and assemble it there.”

Susan Risdon, spokeswoman for the Bridal Extravaganza Show, told ABCNews.com that she has been emailing back and forth with Kensington Palace since Wednesday about the opportunity to bring Cake Kate across the pond.

“We’re still waiting to hear back, but I’m thinking they’re a little busy right now,” she said.

The Media Has Been Very Hypocritical Of The Celebrity Nude Photo Hack, But It's Trying To Change

Sep 8 2014 12:29pm CDT | Source: Huffington Post

Five years ago, you'd be hard-pressed to find a major news outlet shaming you for looking at hacked nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence or the other famous women whose private property was stolen from them and shared online. When Perez Hilton launched in 2004 and TMZ quickly followed in 2005, a new kind of celebrity-obsessed culture developed. Since then, you've been compelled to "LOOK, LOOK, LOOK" every time a celebrity falls, has ...
