A cake fit for a King. And Queen. And most members of the royal court. In honor of the Coronation of King Charles, this giant cake sculpture of the Imperial State Crown stands just over 3 feet tall (1 meter high) and is an impressive replica of the real thing decorated with hundreds of sugar pearls and gems.
Tattooed Baker’s Coronation Cake

The Imperial State Crown, also referred to as the Crown of State, is one of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom and a sovereign symbol of the British monarchy. The 1937 version is worn by a new monarch for the first time in the royal procession following their coronation (having been crowned with St Edward’s Crown during the ceremony) and subsequently used at State Openings of Parliament. The crown is adorned with 2,901 precious stones, including the Cullinan II diamond, St Edward’s Sapphire, the Stuart Sapphire, and the Black Prince’s Ruby (a spinel).
The cake’s details are truly impressive, recreating the giant ruby spinel, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds and pearls of sugar.
