Proud dad bakes boob cake for wife to celebrate year of breastfeeding

A proud dad baked his wife a boob cake to celebrate one year of breastfeeding – and the creation even pumps milk.

Postman Ross Hunt covered two round sponges with pink icing to make the unique cake for his wife Rachel.

And the 26-year-old even installed special pumps inside the cake so the breasts let out a milky liquid – made from icing sugar and water.

Rachel, 25, at first struggled to breastfeed daughter Isabelle.

But she managed to overcome the challenges to mark one year – an occasion Ross wanted to celebrate.

Ross, from Caerphilly, south Wales, said: "I wanted to make a cake to mark one year breastfeeding and thought, what could I make? Boobs obviously, you can’t really do a lot else.

“My wife found breastfeeding hard at first, but she’s managed a year. I think lots of women stop at around six months, but we wanted Isabelle to stop naturally.”

Isabelle celebrated her first birthday with her loving parents and grandparents and had her own cake.

But the boob cake was kept to one side for Rachel and Ross to enjoy.

Ross added: "For Isabelle’s birthday we did two cakes. One was for Isabelle. It was a rather nice iced cake with a load of sprinkles.

"It looks nice, but it was a nightmare adding all those sprinkles!"

While Ross has a creative side making his cakes, he also runs an online blog about trying to cope with postnatal depression after the birth of his daughter.

The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding should continue for up to two years and beyond, with solid foods being phased in at six months of age.
