'Cake Boss' creates life-size cake of Betty White

TLC / Today
Betty White poses with a life-size cake of herself created by "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro at her Friars Club roast on May 16.

Betty White may have been the butt of jokes at her Friars Club roast on Wednesday, but not all of it was hard to swallow. A sweet cake was commissioned for the special event, but not just any cake.

The club asked "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro to create a life-size treat of the 90-year-old actress -- and he did it in 24 hours. The vanilla cake stood at 5'2", was covered in modeling chocolate and depicts White with a little silver fox in her left hand.  The bottom of the cake featured the club's motto: "We only roast the ones we love."

For those who want to see more than just an image of the giant tasty treat, check out "Cake Boss" on TLC. The network said that the cake will be featured in an episode later this year. The show kicks off season five on May 28 at 9 p.m.
