"We had no idea that the cake was being made," says Mr. Kent. "My wife and I are big fans of pork pies and other tasty, porky treats so you can imagine how delighted we were when it was unveiled. Emma was overjoyed - what more could a corpulent bride ever wish for?"
The cake, which featured three tiers and weighed 10kg (22lb), cost just £150 to produce, compared with £650 or more for conventional wedding cakes. Harry Smith, who has known Mr. Kent for ten years, told how he and a group of people made up of friends and family of the couple took eight hours to make it. "It was a lot of hard work, but it was worth it. You should have seen the look of sheer happiness on their fat faces during then ten minutes it took them to scoff the lot, the lardy gits."
