Queen Elizabeth II's Cake Portrait

Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee is kind of  a big deal, so a London bakery is creating a huge portrait cake in honor of the queen.

According to Reuters, the baker will be using 3,120 little cakes, and hand-dip them in icing to match the queen's skin tone. But they have run into difficulties with the lips, apparently. "Her lips are quite bright and it seems slightly inappropriate for Her Majesty to have quite such bright lips so I think we will have to tone that down when it comes to the real thing," owner Gerhard Jenne said.

Watch the video below, showing the trial cake that only uses 500 cakes.
