Imagine yourself... as a cake. Yes, a cake. Would you be able to cut a slice?

Maggie Smith who plays The Dowager Countess in Downton Abbey had a cake designed to look exactly like her for the season five premiere of the show at Fox Theater. 

This is the most realistic cake we have ever seen! It involves Smith in a purple coat, elegant hat and matching jewels and even has glossy eyes. 


The cake is vanilla with buttercream frosting and was made by Karen Portaleo who spent 18 hours working on it.

We're still trying to imagine the scene of people approaching this and eating it. Hope it tasted good?
