Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - "How Sweet It Is Cakes" is baking up a bear sized cake.

The 1,2000 pound cake will be part of the Black Bear Casino's 20th anniversary celebration in August.

The cake may not look like much now, but just imagine sugar waterfalls with images of Duluth in the background, and of course a big Black Bear on top.

This is the biggest cake the shop has ever made and it will have a few surprises.

"The secret to this cake is that when you walk and see it for the first time you will actually hear the beating of the heart under the earth of the bear so it should be very cool," said Jeremy Schrupp, designer of the cake.

Other secrets of the cake will be revealed on August 16 at the Black Bear's celebration.

The flavor of the cake is Cranberry Wild Rice with a Vanilla Bean base.
