Johnny Depp cake: Woman bakes giant Jack Sparrow

A woman has baked an "almost life-sized" Johnny Depp cake for a competition.

Lara Clarke, an amateur baker from Brownhills, West Midlands, made the Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired creation for the Cake International competition in Birmingham.

"He's basically made of Rice Crispies, marshmallows and icing. His head is made from a block of solid white chocolate, which I've carved," she said.

She added that it had taken her about 90 hours to design and make the cake which is 5ft 5in (165 cms) high.
