Betty White is a lot of things to many people. She is a beloved comedian, advocate for animal rights, and the last of a generation of comic actresses who truly honed their craft by portraying iconic characters on TV. All in all, she is truly a one of a kind lady, so it is not a shocker that over time this “Golden Girl” has become idolized in various mediums – from clothing to art – and now a cake!
In honor of White’s roast at the Friar’s Club, Cake Boss Buddy Valastro was asked to make a cake in the likeness of the white haired star. What transpired was a five-foot, two-inch cake, made of buttercream, white cake, and chocolate. To complete the homage to Betty was an edible silver fox, the perfect footnote for this animal loving star.
If I were Betty, I’m not sure if I would be flattered or insulted by the cake as it bears more of a resemblance to Dame Edna…
Check out the gallery of other odd Betty White tributes. The Betty White cake will be seen later this year on season 5 of Cake Boss which starts on Mon., May 28th, at 9 pm.
