While some may consider Johnny Depp a tasty morsel, he has never looked more delicious than in the nearly and slightly terrifying life-size cake crafted by a baker in England.
The cake version of the actor stands 5.5 feet tall and was made by Lara Clarke, an amateur baker, who was looking for a way to wow the judges at the Cake International competition in Birmingham. She started baking two years ago after watching YouTube tutorials and was ready to take her hobby up a notch. “One of my friends was on the phone and said I should enter Cake International. At the time I was watching Pirates of the Caribbean,” Clarke told the BBC. “I was watching Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, and I thought he would make the perfect cake.”
She went all out to make the cake for the competition, telling the BBC, that it took her 90 hours to make the replica, which she started constructing in September. She made the cake version of the Edward Scissorhands and Dark Shadows actor out of crisped rice cereal and marshmallows, with PVC pipes and stainless steel supports. Depps’s trademark smoldering eyes and Captain Jack facial hair were made from royal icing, fondant icing and edible paint.
While Clarke had never attempted anything like a sponge-cake based life-size representation of an actor before, she had baked a cake replica of her mother-in-law. If she could please that audience, the Cake International judges will surely be easier to impress.
On Wednesday, August 21, I received an e-mail from the lovely Carlos Eduardo, who sent me some tattoos of Johnnys characters which were made by the talented Eder R. Katrucha. I uploaded them to our image archive so you can see and rate them. I really really loved those tattoos! Eder, make sure to keep up the good work. And thanks to Carlos for offering his leg and providing us with those amazing tattoos!
A while ago I received a mail which included a link to a video which shows you how to do Johnny’s make-up as the Mad Hatter in “Alice In Wonderland“. Make sure to check out the tutorial. It was made and uploaded by The Creative Stroke. Make sure to check out their other videos as well. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
I’m glad to be sharing something with you that is totally different from the things we actually post on JDW. It has got nothing to do with any updates, rumors etc. but with excellent and brilliant fanart.
On Wednesday I received an e-mail by the very talented, award winning freelance director/editor Jamie Munton. He has always been interested and fascinated with movies and started to make his own films in his early teens. Today he’s 23 years old and just graduated from a Bachelor in Film to work as a film editor in London. (Congratulations!)
This message contained a video that is called “Finding Johnny Depp“. It’s a short movie which developed when Jamie and his friends found out about a rumor that Johnny was living near their university campus in Cornwall. After some accurate research, they set off to see whether the rumors were true. Tthey walked from one location to another to gather more information… Thus “Finding Johnny Depp” was born!
This absolutely awesome film won the Delabole Slate Audience Award at the Cornwall Film Festival in 2010. I’m sure many fans will enjoy this movie, that’s why I decided to share it with you. So, take the time to watch this presentation! By the way, make sure to check out Jamie’s other works on his website. Thanks to Jamie for contacting me.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
