A cake depicting a character from the hit television series Game of Thrones was unveiled by a bakery in Dubai, Tuesday.

The Broadway Bakery created the cake featuring the fictional character Tyrion Lannister, weighing 32kg (70.5lbs) and with the height of 1,2m (4ft), consisting of sugar paste and sugar fondant, as well as laced with gold.

According to chef cook Dominic Samuel, the cake has been ordered by some fan of the Game of Thrones. He stated that the 20 cooks had spent about three weeks to finish the massive dessert.

"The head [of Tyrion Lannister] itself, as you can see, was made over a period of three weeks, by one of our leading cake decorators. And he perfected it to the last scar, to the last beard hair, to the last drop of detail in the face," Samuel explained.

The Game of Thrones fan paid about $27,000 (€24,000) for the sugary masterpiece.
