PEOPLE often spare no expense when it comes to an extravagant cake for a special occasion, but one unusual request has left many scratching their heads.
A mega royal fan asked for a life-sized Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cake, with baker Lara Mason sharing the end result online.

The absurd cake order came just ahead of the Megxit anniversary, with yesterday marking one whole year since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
In a clip she shared on TikTok, Lara – who makes “insane” cakes – reenacted a phone conversion she had with the mystery person who made the unusual order.
Admitting it “was NOT” easy”, she took on the challenge and produced an incredible edible display which mimics a recognisable snap taken of the couple from their engagement announcement in 2017.
The life-sized cake even features Harry’s famous red hair and Meghan’s loose brunette waves – and shares an uncanny resemblance to the actual couple.

While we can certainly give credit where it’s due, and praise Lara for her incredible work, some reckon it’s a little “creepy”.
Posting in the comments section on TikTok, one person questioned: “Under what circumstance would anyone need this?”
To which one fan wrote: “Why WOULDN’T you need this? “
Even royal commentator and author of Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie, spotted the video and shared it on Twitter where people were quick to comment on the “creepiness” of the sweet treat.

One person wrote: “I can app the amount of effort went into the process of making these cakes, but I cannot shake of a feeling of them being creepy as hell.”
While another asked: “Who would want to eat a piece of someone as cake. I just couldn’t do it, no matter the person. It’s pretty cool, and very talented,
But it’s like art, no eating or touching, just admire it.”
And a third added: “Omid, this is horrifying and I’m holding you accountable for the nightmares moving forwards.”
Who the mad royalist is still remains a mystery, and so too does the reason behind the lavish cake – but perhaps it’s to mark the upcoming anniversary.
Harry was supposed to return to the UK in March for a one year review of Megxit
The condition of Megxit was that the prince discuss the arrangement with his grandma, but plans have been put on hold because of Covid
When Harry and Meghan stepped away from the royal family last year and moved to the US with their son Archie, it was on one condition – that the prince would meet his grandma at a later date to discuss how the arrangement was working.
A 12-month review was due for March 31 this year – but the prince has been forced to cancel the plans as a mutant Covid strain ravages the UK and non-essential travel banned.
Despite the turbulent year, it seems Harry and Meghan are ‘in a very good place’ a year on from Megxit and are happy with their new life in the US.
Somehow, we don’t think the same can be said for their edible counterpart, though, which won’t quite make it to 12 months.
We also shared how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘have already dealt with’ four biggest issues for 12-month Megxit review with Queen.
And Meghan officially misses chance of becoming Brit after Megxit means she didn’t spend enough time in UK.
Plus this is how Meghan and Harry got Megxit done – from a Californian mansion to £100million Netflix deal.
