(CBS) — What do you get when you combine 25 pounds of chocolate, 45 pounds of sugar, 10 pounds of Rice Krispies and 108 years of waiting?
A cake worthy of a World Series winner.
Susan Walker is with the French Pastry School in Chicago, which baked a 5-foot Cubs cake going on display at City Hall.
“It’s just not a cake of Wrigley Field. It really represents the years and the history of the Chicago Cubs and the quest to win the World Series,” Walker tells WBBM.
But the cake should not be eaten. While all the flavoring on the outside is real, the inside is actually a “dummy cake.”
The cake was created by the French Pastry School’s certified master sugar artist, Chef Sunny Lee, and intern Eunli Cho, a graduate of the school’s 16-week cake decorating program.
It took the duo about 200 hours to create the 5-foot cake, which includes 45 pounds of sugar, 25 pounds of chocolate and 10 pounds of Rice Krispies.
The cake will be on display at the Chicago City Council Chambers beginning Wednesday and will stay there indefinitely.
