Weddings aren't cheap, because people in the wedding business feel like they can rip you off. But Debbie Wingham is in an entirely different racket. Her deal is being the world's most expensive designer and she just made a $1 million bride cake for a wedding show in Dubai.
The bride shaped cake is 182 cm (72 in) high and weighs 120 kg (164 lbs) - more than the model who posed for the making! 1,000 eggs and 20 kilos (4 lbs) of chocolate went into making this thing. It's covered in 50 kilograms (110 lbs) of lacy confectionery - and it's entirely edible! All the tiny flowers and peals were handmade, and the cake took 10 days to decorate. The head of the "bride" is decorated with pearls and three-carat diamonds.More!
