A Kim Kardashian double has commissioned a baker to create a life-size cake of the celebrity. The cake took ten days to make and 3D printing was used to create Kim K’s face.
Whether you love or hate the Kardashians, you’ve got to be impressed by a life-size cake made to look exactly like her. It even stands up by itself. Made from Rice Krispies, chocolate and icing, the cake is almost identical to the celeb.
The cake is the creation of baker and couture designer Debbie Wingham who’s based in London and LA. She was commissioned by a professional Kim Kardashian lookalike’s partner ahead of the double’s birthday.
Although Wingham was initially hesitant to create a cake so similar to the celeb, she finally accepted the challenge. To make sure the cake was as accurate as possible, she used 3D printing technology to create the face.
She explains the process on her Instagram, saying: “I tried a pioneering technique and 3D printed KKW face in edible materials and used that as a foundation and built upon it with modeling chocolate mixed with @massa_ticino_sugarpaste to adapt the features to make my Kim K look alike client.”
It took ten days to create the edible version of the reality TV star. Wingham used 15 kilograms of icing sugar and even adorned the Kardashian cake with £1.2 million worth of diamonds from Cartier.
Keeping up with the Kardashian Cake
To create a Kardashian cake, ingredients you’ll need include; 30,000 baby marshmallows, 85 boxes of Rice Krispies, 15 kilos of Massa Ticino fondant, modeling chocolate, sugar eyelashes, edible metallic paint, color dust and real diamonds.
Wingham first mixed the Rice Krispies with the melted marshmallows and covered this in fondant. She used sugar to create the eyelashes and fingernails.
The Kim K cake also received a manicure using edible metallic paint. To make the cake’s skin appear more realistic, Wingham used edible color dust.
The 3D printed edible face template was then covered in modeling chocolate. However, the details of the exact “pioneering” 3D printing process technique are unclear.
Wingham thinks of her Kim K cake as a work of art. It’ll be a shame to eat the cake after all of her hard work. However, she explains that she’s now ready to model the rest of the Kardashians.
“I would love to make the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan only this time featuring the real Kim, not a lookalike, and with their permission entirely made of cake. I think they have such a fun family environment I can almost picture it as a segment on Keeping up with the Kardashians,” she told the Daily Mail.
