Open Post: Hosted By The Life-Size Cake Version of Colin Firth As Mr. Darcy

September 5, 2020 / Posted by:

For a good portion of 2020, we as a society have cruelly been presented with videos online showing countless yummy morsels presented as one thing––only to discover that they are, in fact, cake. Well, fortunately, somebody has turned something already delicious and made it EVEN more delicious…like the artist who turned a full-sized ‘Colin Firth as Fitzwilliam Darcy into a heaping, 6-foot tall mound of sweet stuff. Anybody looking to be able to make the claim that they once received a mouthful of Colin Firth needs to follow up with this amazing cake artist and place a repeat order STAT!

In recent “Why The Hell Not” news, cake artist Michelle Wibowo has answered the prayers of millions of sexually frustrated moms and their gay sons by using 20kg of flour, 25kg of butter, and 45kg of sugar to create a panty-creaming confectionary creation that is eerily reminiscent of Colin Firth’s portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the BBC’s 1995 miniseries version of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”. 

According to Variety, Michelle, who works extensively with 3D imaging, came up with the idea to turn Colin’s Mr. Darcy into a cake after studying every angle of his face from online videos (probably not the type of videos I’m looking for when I Google: Colin + Firth + lookalike + whipped + cream:

“I got a clip from YouTube and also a few shots of Mr Darcy from online. I gathered as many pictures as I could because I’m creating a 3D figurine, not a painting, so I have to see his face from every angle. I studied away, trying to gather all the puzzle pieces together to create a 3D image in my head. I worked out what he will be wearing and after doing the initial drawing, I created the drawing to work out the structure, then a scale drawing to build from.”

Apparently, Michelle spent three weeks and 200 hours working on the six-foot sponge––from planning to construction. No word on whether or not Mr. Darcy is filled with custard or cream, but I’m sure a generous bite in just the right area should answer that mystery.
