What would your perfect wedding cake look like? For Chidi Ogbuta of Allen, Texas, perfection was a cake shaped as an exact likeness of herself. Life-sized. From the photo essay (which must be seen to be believed):

‘The cake actually fulfilled my childhood dream,’ said Ogbuta, who said she had long thought it would be fun to have a doll made in her likeness. While her fantasy never happened, she said the cake was pretty close.

She found a pastry chef to bake the cake and a separate person who would mold a custom head for her. Working with these two women from two cities, she was able to put the cake together.

Manolo the Shoeblogger calls the Tom Petty reference.
