A life-sized cake of actor Colin Firth has been created to celebrate the anniversary of Pride and Prejudice.

Cake artist Michelle Wibowo, who created the sponge Mr Darcy, said she ‘couldn’t be happier’ with the results.

‘What better reason than the 25th anniversary of the series of Pride And Prejudice to create a birthday cake to celebrate,’ she said.

Ms Wibowo worked on the life-sized cake for more than 200 hours. 

She started by sketching a model based on the 1995 TV adaptation, which will be re-broadcast as part of Jane Austen season on TV station Drama.
