Epic Edible Wedding Dress Is Made Entirely Of Cake

This wedding dress isn't made of tulle, chiffon or satin. It's not even charmeuse, silk or crepe. 

We're going to go out on a limb when we say this dress is made of the best material of all: cake. Award-winning cake sculptor Sylvia Elba was asked to design the confection for Cake International, a cake decorating and baking show that takes place this month in London. 


The goal of the project was to create something based on wafer paper; it was Elba's idea to create the life-size dress, which is made entirely of fondant, cake lace and wafer paper.

"I always liked wedding dresses, and this is how the idea came to my mind," Elba told the Daily Mirror.  

She worked on the wedding dress cake  -- which weighs more than 150 pounds and stands at 5'5" -- with Yvette Marner, founder of Fun N Funky Cakes, and cake designer Ilinka Rnic. It took the team over 300 hours to complete.

The Huffington Post reached out to Elba for comment, but had not heard back at the time of publication. This story may be updated.
