The gem-encrusted birthday and engagement dessert is six foot long, includes 4,000 real diamonds, and was created by a top fashion designer
A British woman has baked the world’s most expensive cake which has so many precious gems it is worth £48.5 million.
Debbie Wingham has created a 6ft long replication of a runway that includes edible models of Vogue editor Anna Wintour looking on as a model goes down the catwalk.
It is made up of some 4000 rare stones including a 5.2 carat pink diamond a 6.4 yellow diamond.
In total the massive cake weighs some 70 stone – the same as a fully grown grizzly bear.
Miss Wingham was commissioned to make the cake by a wealthy client in the UAE, whose name has not been revealed.
The cake itself is not even the focus of the project; instead it is to showcase the stones that will be given to the client’s daughter to mark her birthday and her engagement.
Miss Wingham is originally a fashion designer and the clothes in the cake resemble her own couture clothing.
The front row, which includes Miss Wintour, all have edible designer handbags and are carrying smartphones and tablets.
In total there are 15 five carat white diamonds, 76 two carat black diamonds and 62 two carat white diamonds.
The runway is adorned with 400 one carat diamonds, 75 three carat white diamonds and 75 three carat black diamonds.
Every piece of the cake was hand sculpted by Miss Wingham who put in the equivalent of 45 days pulling it together from conception to completion.
She used 18 stone of fondant icing and nine stone of modelling chocolate before the entire cake was vetted and appraised by an independent third party to verify its worth.
Miss Wingham, who is originally from South Yorkshire, has previously created the world’s most expensive dress that had so many jewels that it costs £11.6m.
The ‘Abaya’ was a simple, loose-fitting black and red dress inspired by the clothes worn by women in North Africa.
It included 3,000 stones, including 50 two-carat black diamonds, 50 two-carat white diamonds, 1,899 black-and-white pointer diamonds and 1,000 pointer rubies.
The centrepiece was the world’s rarest and most expensive red diamond, which is worth £4.8m
