Warship sails along the Firth of Forth.

The 91-year-old queen boarded the Royal Navy's newest, largest and most expensive vessel Thursday in Portsmouth naval base.

"Like HMS Victory, HMS Queen Elizabeth embodies the best of British technology and innovation, a true flagship for the 21st century".

"The most powerful and capable ship ever to raise the White Ensign, she will in the years and decades ahead represent the country's resolve on the global stage".

It might not be quite the size of HMS Queen Elizabeth, but this eight-foot replica of the 65,000-tonne carrier is still an extremely impressive piece of construction.

Sections of the 920ft-long carrier were then assembled at Rosyth Dockyard from 2011.

David Duncan, founder and lead designer of 3D Cakes, said: 'It's been an honour for us to create a cake for the Queen's commissioning ceremony of HMS Queen Elizabeth.

The confection weighed nearly 24 stone and was made by Scottish cake-makers 3D Cakes.

'We love a challenge at 3D Cakes, so when we were given the brief to create the 8ft replica ship we knew that it would be hard but also something that we would never forget.

The cake was ceremonially cut by Steward Callum Hui, 17, and Karen Kyd, Captain Jerry Kyd's wife.

Warrant officer first class William Shepherd said it would take pride of place in the Royal Navy's culinary school. Download it today and continue to enjoy STV News wherever you are.
