Would Jennifer Lawrence take a bite out of Jennifer Lawrence?
The Mockingjay star had seen a photo of the 5-foot-11 Katniss Everdeen cake created by a U.K. baker, but co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson were treated to a pic of the contest-winning but can't-help-but-be-creepy confection for the first time during a sit-down with BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw.
"What?!" Hutcherson marveled repeatedly as Grimshaw passed them a pic of the $950 cake that took 150 eggs, 22 pounds of flour and butter and 2 1/2 months to make, according to Britain's Telegraph. Lara Clarke, the Belfast-born proprietor of Tasty Cakes bakery, won the Cake International in Birmingham, England, this year with the Hunger Games-themed J.Law-as-Katniss replica.
At about 2:10 in the video here, Lawrence, Hemsworth and Hutcherson start ogling the picture of the cake in wide-eyed disbelief.
"But seriously, if the girl who made that's listening, you're incredibly talented," Lawrence complimented the effort.
"Good work to the person who did that," Hemsworth also gave props, but Hutcherson noticed a flaw.
"Your waist is smaller," he said under his breath to Lawrence, who squealed, "Oh my god...Joshie!"
("Joshie"?) "Just so you know," he added.
Regardless, consider Lara Clarke's day made.
"Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson just called me amazing on Radio1... Me?" she wrote on Tasty Cake's Facebook page (take a look at her Tyrion Lanister cake, too!). "I am absolutely gob smacked... Like... I have tears. This is awesome."
Then, snipping the bite of audio in which Lawrence calls her "incredibly talented," Clarke also wrote, "I'm so setting this bad boy as my ringtone!! Awesome comments from THE Jennifer Lawrence."
Which is so much sweeter than the sugar and flour version.
