Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow cake baked for competition
A woman has baked an "almost life-sized" cake showing Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, for a baking competition.
Lara Clarke from Brownhills, West Midlands, made the Pirates of the Caribbean-style treat for Birmingham's Cake International competition.
She said: "The judges are probably more used to seeing three-tier wedding cakes than giant Jack Sparrows."
Lara says she only started baking two years ago.
"All I'd really made before was some bog-standard banana cake in home economics," she said.
"The first time I baked a decorated cake was for my mother-in-law's 25th wedding anniversary. I thought it was rubbish but everybody else seemed to like it."
Since then, Ms Clarke has baked cakes for family and friends.
She's also made a 4ft (1.2m) Grinch cake, a motorbike and a Kate Middleton cake - but this one of Cap'n Jack is her biggest effort yet.
"I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean. I was watching Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, and I thought he would make the perfect cake.
It took her 90 hours to make.
