When Marilyn Monroe agreed to pose nude for a sexy calendar shoot in 1949, the then broke and out-of-work actress never expected the photos to resurface on the cover of Playboy just a few years later.

Lulu - Cake - Boutique - Scarsdale - New

But Lulu Cake Boutique in Scarsdale, New York has made the unpredictable move, rendering a very realistic — and very naked — Marilyn out of fondant and sprinkles.

Edible magazine in Westchester and Hudson Valley are putting out a special #FoodPorn-themed issue this summer. The centerfold of this issue was designed by Lulu's Senior Cake Designers Lily Pair and Jay Muse.

Marilyn - Playboy - Glory - Muse - Delish

'Why not? Marilyn in all her playboy pin-up glory!' Muse told Delish.

The cake took a whopping 14 hours to make, and is 5'5" long and 150lbs. It's entirely edible, and is made of vanilla cake, mascarpone filling, marzipan, white chocolate, and sprinkles.

Version - Silk - Background - Shoot - Marilyn

The top features a fondant version of the red silk background of her famous nude shoot. Marilyn lays naked on top, surrounded by colorful confetti sprinkles.

'Her torso was the easiest part,' said Muse. 'Surprisingly, her hair was the [trickiest] part!'

The image is certainly recognizable, even if seeing it made out of sugar is someting new.
