Bakers have created incredible edible displays for this year’s Cake International event at the NEC in Birmingham.
Realistic edible versions of some of the world’s most famous stars – including King Charles and Ozzy Osbourne – were among the show-stopping creations on display at the world’s biggest cake competition today.
The competition receives over 1,500 entries each year and it attracts thousands of baking enthusiasts, cake artists, chocolatiers, and patisserie chefs from around the world.
Bakers of all ages and levels of experience can enter, with many taking inspiration from the world of celebrity for their elaborate bakes.
Ozzy Osbourne was transformed into a breathtaking but slightly spooky cake by cake designer Jane Lashbrook.
The cake realistically replicated the Black Sabbath star to life-size, and he sat on a throne made of skulls.

Elsewhere, another talented baker recreated Mrs Doubtfire, from the cult 1993 film starring Robin Williams, in sponge. The impressive cake was complete withthe character’s classic outfit and broom.
And one baker used their kitchen skills to create a chef’s table made completely from cake. The magnificent work of art included a chopping board with chef’s essentials, such as garlic and tomatoes.
But the realistic piece took a creepy turn with a chopped off finger and an ear leaking with blood.
