Britain’s little prince is now a freshly baked confection.

Prince George became a cake at the 2015 Cake International competition in Birmingham, England – and the likeness is uncanny.

The remarkable sweet was created by British baker Lara Clarke of Tasty Cakes.

“It’s the biggest cake show in the UK and it just keeps getting bigger,” Clarke tells PEOPLE. “This is my third year entering, last year I made a life-sized Jennifer Lawrence and the year before Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow.”

Aiming for top prizes, Clarke decided to build a life-size version of Princess Kate and Prince William‘s adorable 2-year-old.

Wearing his red shorts and embroidered shirt from Princess Charlotte‘s christening, the cake version of George even included the toddler’s precious chubby cheeks.

“I actually got married two weeks ago, so with there being such a short amount of time, I had to go a lot smaller this year,” Clarke says of her decision to recreate the royal. “Plus the judges recommended that I did a recognizable character. Who is more recognizable than our future king?”

Clarke, who tells PEOPLE that “George” went down “really well” with event attendees, won a gold award for the cake, which took 30 hours to craft, according to the BBC.

“I love the royal family, it’s one of the best parts of being British,” she says.

Clarke has mastered the art of over-the-top cakes. Some of her past creations (aside from the ber realistic celebrities) have included Hogwarts, a guitar and amp, and even a keyboard piano.
