LONDON - An amateur baker from Britain scooped a gold award after creating a life-sized Prince George sponge cake.

Lara Mason, 29, spent 30 hours crafting the sponge statue, which stands at just under 91cm, according to a BBC report.

A Tyrannosaurus Rex and Yoda from Star Wars controlling a levitating cake were among the eye-catching entries at the Cake International competition.

Mrs Mason said she was "delighted" to win gold.

She scooped golds in previous years for her cakes of actress Jennifer Lawrence as Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen and Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates Of The Caribbean.

Mrs Mason said: "The feedback from the judges was they loved what I did.

"But they wanted to see what I could do on a smaller scale because when it's life sized and you put it on the table, they can't see all the smaller details and the most important part on a human sculpture is a face.

"I thought I'd do a child. He's the most famous child in the world and especially cute as well and very, very current."

There were more than 1,000 competition entries on show from cake decorators from across the globe.

Another competitor created a Jurassic Park inspired scene with a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex's head emerging from a jungle.
