A couple asked a Lancaster County baker to create a wedding cake in the shape of a deer. The result has been deerly beloved on Facebook.

Pam McNeal sculpted the life-size deer at Shady Maple Farm Market in East Earl, according to the market’s Facebook page.

The couple provided the antlers but McNeal created the cake body and Styrofoam head from scratch, market representatives told FOX-29.

We don’t know how many bucks the couple paid but the deer contained enough cake to feed 250 wedding guests at the wedding held in early October.

Shady Maple Farm Market told FOX-29 it took McNeal 10 hours to create the cake.

So far, the photo has been shared more than 3,300 times on Facebook.

The market has since received requests for life-size cakes depicting a German shepherd, a labradoodle and a mallard duck, says bakery employee Ashley McComsey.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
