This cake was made by 32-year-old Lara Mason for the Cake International show, which is held annually at the NEC in Birmingham.

It took Mason 250 hours to make this royal-themed sugar spectacular, which is composed of chocolate cake and fondant icing.

It weighs 20st. That’s the same as 41,144 tea bags.

There are 300 eggs and 7st of icing in Harry and Meghan. Meghan even has a small bump, following the announcement of her pregnancy.

“Every year, I enter the Cake International competition and this year they said they wanted me to create something that will be an official showpiece,” Mason told the Express. “It’s the biggest cake I’ve ever done.”

Young Harry also made an appearance. Another baker fashioned him, his brother William, and late mother Princess Diana out of cake.
