Life Sized Colin Firth Cake To Celebrate 25th Anniversary of Pride & Prejudice

A life sized cake of the actor, Colin Firth, has been created to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the BBC’s miniseries, Pride and Prejudice. The six foot tall cake of Mr. Darcy was unveiled at the National Trust property, Lyme Park, in Cheshire, the house used as the character’s famous home in the miniseries, Pemberley.

Cake artist Michelle Wibowo, who created the sponge Mr Darcy, said she ‘couldn’t be happier’ with the results.

‘What better reason than the 25th anniversary of the series of Pride And Prejudice to create a birthday cake to celebrate,’ she said.

Ms Wibowo worked on the life-sized cake for more than 200 hours. 

She started by sketching a model based on the 1995 TV adaptation, which will be re-broadcast as part of Jane Austen season on TV station Drama.

I don’t want to eat it (even though it looks amazing and very yummy) I just want to just to be able to be front of this amazing work of art! Such a great tribute to Jane Austen and the best adaptation out there!

  1. I used to volunteer at Lyme Park and I’m very disappointed that cake Mr. Darcy wasn’t around at the time! There was, however, the most terrifying 12ft pond Mr Darcy which eventually ended up in Australia.
