This cake for Mary Berry’s 80th Birthday is a showstopper

Mary Berry Cake

This eight-tiered wonder has been specially created to mark the 80th birthday of Great British Bake Off judge and celebrated baker Mary Berry and we’re in awe.

The showstopper extraordinaire took more than 28 hours to make with 12 hours spent baking and a whopping 16 hours assembling and decorating the masterpiece.

It was made by former Great British Bake Off contestant Ruth Clemens who teamed up with Stork for the creation.

It contains 42 eggs and uses 3kg of Stork with the whole cake weighing in at 16.5kg. Probably not one for a single sitting, even if you’re Bruce Bogtrotter.

Each layer represents a cake trend from a decade of Mary’s life starting with a 1940s fruit wedding cake and ending with the ultra-modern Pinata cake.
