The Pirates Of The Caribbean would be way better if the cast was all desserts. (via)

As everyone across the globe knows, today is the Cake International baking competition in Birmingham, UK, and Lara Clarke of Tasty Cakes is so not fucking around. According to The Mirror, Clarke spent 90 hours scupting her batter and icing into this 5' 5" replica of Captain Jack Sparrow, arguably Johnny Depp's most iconic role, since it's the one that required the least amount of facepaint.

The competition might have already happened, and for all we know Lara's already won. I'm hereby giving up on my lifesize cake replica of Johnny Depp from The Tourist. Some dreams are better left undreamt.
