ONE Direction hunk Zayn Malik was presented with an Incredible Hulk birthday cake designed and baked in Weymouth for his milestone 21st birthday.

The cake was ordered by a family member of his fiancee Perrie Edwards, who has relatives in Weymouth.

Ian Gill of Brewers Quay-based Arty Party Cakes was asked to design the cake, which features a green fist bursting through the icing.

He said: "A member of Perrie's family ordered it.

"I was told that Zayn is a fan of the Marvel Comics, especially the Incredible Hulk and Wolverine of The X- Men."

The cake, featuring the words 'Happy 21st Birthday Zayn', is a Madeira sponge.

Also designed especially for the Bradford-born singer was a 'cupcake mosaic' - a batch of delicious cupcakes that when put together make up images of the Incredible Hulk and Wolverine.

Mr Gill said: "I think it's fantastic that Perrie's family chose to support a local business and order the cake from us.

"We're really keen to see a picture of Zayn enjoying the 'hulk' cake on Twitter."

Last summer, Arty Party Cakes made a 20th birthday cake for former Weymouth schoolgirl Perrie.

The Little Mix band member made the hippie-themed cake an internet sensation after tweeting a picture of herself with it to her 3.5 million followers.

As part of the One Directioner's 21st birthday celebrations, Zayn and Perrie travelled to Disneyland Paris to meet Mickey Mouse and friends.

Last night the star was understood to have celebrated his birthday with some showbiz pals at his home in London, including bandmate Liam Payne.

Zayn was in Weymouth recently with Perrie for New Year celebrations and marked the arrival of 2014 with a new tattoo from King Street shop Tattoo Magic.

Who cares! Do we really need reports all the time. Wow, they were in Weymouth. A couple of years ago they couldve walked down the street and no one batter an eyelid. They win a manufactured "music" competition and their life suddenly seems interesting.

If I were in their position I would stop coming down to Weymouth, cant do anything without the whole of the town knowing.

The Echo is for all ages (early teens onwards), yeah?

As this couple are from two of the biggest British pop bands, at present, i'm sure some youngters would enjoy reading of such people visiting their hometown

Which begs the question, "when did you last see a youngster reading the Echo?".

Whether people like them or not, Little Mix and One Direction are massive bands at the moment with loads of teenagers loving them. Whatever they do is big news and people of Weymouth should embrace this positive news, rather than knocking it all the time. As elloello1980 says the Echo is for all ages and this is positive advertising for the town and a local business.

They chose to enter a talent competition, with the vision of becoming famous. So I'm sure a local paper running a story on them does not phase them...

Of course they won't come here to our little pavilion, if they had any genuine
interest in this town then they would have booked an evening by now for all those kiddies who are One Direction fans.
