Just reading the excerpts from the article brought big chuckles. I'd definitely like to read the book but not overly sure I'd pay a lot of green dollars for it.

Vote for the biggest chuckle so far was calling Charles "Goonie". Priceless!

Fondant is just evil. Evil. Even bakers I know say to scrape it off and not eat it.

I know some think the cake is creepy but I think it's adorable and the baker is very talented. It actually looks like George even down to the little pants that were too big for him. The baker should be very proud of his work.

Here, here! I agree 100%. It's a pretty amazing sculpture (though I wouldn't eat it ).

If you don't think it is intruding in the Royal youngsters' private lives you may wish to check out the photo of the personalised see-saw already delivered for George and Charlotte for Christmas.

There is a short article with details in the "Daily Mail/Mail Online" by Sebastian Shakespeare.

(And the Duchess is packing walnuts, in decorative bags, for the Anmer Hall staff.)

I agree. It is creepy. It's the eerie kind of creepy when something is lifelike but without life in it. But the talent of the creator is definitley there!

Ewwww! No! It's totally creepy.

It is food.

Food is created to be eaten.

Why create an item of food without intending that it be eaten?

Why create food in the shape of a human child? Especially the child of a prominent human family?

What are you supposed to do if you get that item on your table? You are supposed to eat it. Surely. So you cut off a limb, or its head. Or dig into its chest or abdomen. And scoop out the filling and eat it.

Really?

*dashes off into the corner to vomit*

Ewwwwwwww!

I see your point. But I think this kind of food is not created to be eaten, more as a show of talent. As a unique form of "sculpting material".

Add me to the 'it's creepy' group. Even though the baker may be talented, I never understood the point of making cakes shaped as humans. It's just wrong somehow. And the likeness looks as if it's ready to go on a stabbing rampage. Yeah, no thanks...

Well, this is really very creepy. "George the cake" looks like a child monster and I do not know, but it gives me cannibalism vibes. Cakes are made for eating and this ... no comment.

The cake looks very unappetising both on the outside and inside - I don't suppose they used royal icing, I'd eat that bit.

When you look at pictures of Prince George, have you ever felt an almost irresistible urge to eat him?

Well, now you can: A slice of Prince George, anyone? | Royalista
