Mum who baked life-size cake of The Grinch stunned as it’s praised by Jim Carrey

A baking mum has been left short for words after her attempt at making The Grinch out of cake was praised by Jim Carrey.

Lara Mason, 35, created a life-sized cake version of the famous Christmas-hating green creature, which weighed in at 250lbs.

She admits to being a fan of the star of the 2000 Christmas film, and gave her self 17 days to complete the task.

However, due to a medical issue, she ended up having just three days to do it.

The full-time baker made the 5ft tall creation at home, and posted about it on her YouTube and TikTok channels when it was done.

But it was on Boxing Day when it was truly noticed, as actor Jim Carrey shared the footage on his social media.

Carrey, who played the character in the film, tweeted: “My ultimate goal is not just to be admired by fans, but to be eaten by them.

“I wonder if she does an angel food Ace Ventura.”

The mother-of-two, from Brownhills, said: “I got a call from my friend who said that Jim Carrey had tweeted a link to my YouTube Channel.

“I was in complete shock; he is my favourite actor.

“My video had only been seen by two thousand people and one of those was Jim Carrey – it was mind-blowing.

“After he shared it, it has had over 20 million views on TikTok.

“You know you have done a good job when you see your stuff go worldwide.”

After being challenged by The Mask and Dumb and Dumber star, Lara said she has already has some ideas for her next cake.

She added: "I am not really one to turn down a challenge, so that might be happening next.

“My intention was to cut it up and give it to my children's school, but because I had Covid making it, that cannot be done so the animals will get to enjoy it instead.”
