After everything was approved, Natasha Coline Kim Fah Lee Fokas, founder of SweetyCakes was presented with the Guinness World Records certificate. “A few years ago, I was in the middle of my work as a cake designer, in my then tiny ‘shop’, at the back of my mini studio and busy decorating a wedding cake, I had a crazy idea: How great would it be if a whole wedding dress was made of cake...? A few days later, my youngest daughter Elli was already the model for the first attempt [and] the most difficult part: how is it possible to construct the part of the dress that has to be worn on the skin in such a way that it holds up. It wasn't perfect, but perfect for the first time. The attempt was a challenge to myself and it's nice to have it officially confirmed,” Guinness World Record quoted Natasha.

The video was shared by Guinness World Records on Instagram. It shows a model wearing the cake wedding dress decorated with flowers made out of royal icing and a sweetheart neckline. It also captures people enjoying a slice of cake from it. “Largest wearable cake dress (supported) 131.15 kg (289 lb 13 oz ) by Natasha Coline Kim fah Lee Fokas, SweetyCakes GmbH,” read the caption of the video shared by Guinness World Records on Instagram.
