The Wedding Cake Bride
As though a wedding dress wasn’t already expensive enough, meet the Million Dollar Bride, Lulwa. She’s a life-size 120 kilogram wedding cake that looks just like a real Arabian bride. The cake bride was made by the most expensive designer in the world, Debbie Wingham and was shown at the Dubai Bride Show.
Wingham is the designer of several other objects that are among the most expensive known to man kind, such as a shoe for $16 million, a black diamond dress for $4.8 million, and another wedding cake valued at a shocking $67 million.
Her latest project, the Million Dollar Bride cake is valued at $1 million, making it her most reasonably priced work so far. This however does not take away from it’s incredible realism and impressive style.
The name Lulwa was chosen because it is the Arabic word for pearls. The cake is made out of layers upon layers of sponge, 25 kilograms of pure chocolate and approximately 50 kilograms of fondant. The gown is made from 5,000 hand-cut fondant flowers and 10,000 pearls which are edible. The only part of the dress that cannot be eaten are five diamonds on the dress, as well as the bride’s headgear.
It’s so heavy that it requires 6 people to carry, and is hard to believe it’s not a real bride.
