Steven Carter-Bailey, who was a finalist of series 8 of The Great British Bake Off and the winner of The Great New Year's Bake Off 2019, recently expressed his appreciation for Studio Ghibli's Laputa: Castle in the Sky in the most characteristic way possible: by making a lovely cake.
Laputa, Castle in the Sky is my all time favourite @instaghibli movie! When asked to make cake, I jumped at the chance.#ghibli #ghibliart #studioghibli #cake #cakesofinstagram #cakedecorating #cakedecoration #cakedecorator #gbbo #homebaker #laputa #laputacastleinthesky pic.twitter.com/6X851zjjot— Steven Carter-Bailey (@SpongeCakeSqTin) February 24, 2021
He posted the photo on Twitter and Instagram, and wrote: "Laputa, Castle in the Sky is my all time favourite @instaghibli movie! When asked to make cake, I jumped at the chance. Layers of vanilla bean sponge with white chocolate ganache and raspberry make up this magical cake."
The cake recreates both the floating city of Laputa and the iconic iron golem.
