The hype around the return of “Game of Thrones” has reached peak hysteria.
To choose just a few examples: Oreo recreated the show’s opening credits using 3,000 cookies, HBO hid Iron Thrones around the world, and a super-rich fan put out a $US6.5 million plea for authentic show props so he can recreate iconic scenes on his 150-acre estate.
You can even get paid $US53 an hour to teach High Valyrian.
Just when it seemed that nothing else could possibly become “Game of Thrones”-themed, a few familiar faces arrived at London’s iconic Tower Bridge, courtesy of Stork baking spread.
Stork commissioned food artist Michelle Wibowo to bake three statue-sized cakes depicting Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, and Arya Stark from the show – and it was quite the undertaking.
According to Stork, each life-sized sculpture took 300 hours to make, and the largest statue depicting Snow is 173 cm tall and weighs an almost life-like 150 pounds.
In total, the statues weigh a combined 400 pounds in sponge and icing.
A survey of 1,500 Brits commissioned by Stork revealed that a season finale or TV show returning accounted for the reason why 19% of people bake.
It’s unlikely those people will go to the same lengths as Wibowo, though.
The eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones” premieres this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
