A viral Tiktok posted by Baker Lara Mason reveals how she created an eerily impressive, life-size clone of the 6ft singer Jason Derulo using layers of cake and icing after he reached out to her personally.
Lara Mason, known on Tiktok for her “Cake Anything” clips which have amassed over 39 million likes, posted the video last Wednesday and has since gone viral. In the clip Jason Derulo phones the baker asking “hey, can I get a life-size cake made of me?” before revealing himself as the famous ‘Dirty Singer’ to Mason. The video then shows a time-lapse of Mason constructing the huge cake and using icing to create Derulo’s clothing, hair, and beard before cutting into it and taking a slice at the end.
The realism of the cake is emphasized by Mason’s attention to detail – with the baker taking the time to draw Derulo’s tattoos and add muscle definition to the confectionary statue. She also frosted on the pop star’s black tank top and patterned pants that he is wearing at the start of the video. The sugary sculpture, which weighs in at 100kg, is posed talking on the phone wearing a chain bearing an identical smile to the celebrity.
Jason Derulo certainly seemed impressed with his cake clone, commenting a mind-blown and praying hands emoji on the “Cake Anything” Tiktok page. Mason also delved into the comment section of the viral clip to explain how she created the masterpiece. The baker revealed that she constructed the figure’s shape from assorted sponge, red velvet, and chocolate cakes that she had previously baked and left in her freezer and also explained that the cake took over three days to complete.
