Bakery Dr. Oetker in the U.K. has created a cupcake creation to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

They partnered with food artist Prudence Staite to create the portrait made entirely of 2,012 cupcakes. The creation, which includes fancy cupcakes (not just simple ones thrown together), is made up of more than 50 kg of regal-icing, 40 tubes of red and blue gel food colouring, 10 cans of gold and silver shimmer spray, 12,000 soft gold pearls, and 48,000 silver pearls.

Can’t get enough cake news? Then have you heard a piece of the wedding cake served at Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William’s reception in April 2011 is up for sale? Bids are at about $2,500. Read more of this story!
