Awesome Nyan Cat cake looks so good you may never want to cut it and eat it.
I’m sure there are many of you that have dreamed of having your lips around Ned Stark (Sean Bean), but perhaps not his severed, edible, delicious, candy head. Well ladies and gents, thanks to Jennifer at Not Your Mamma’s Cookies, you can at least have his head (the severed one) in your mouth.
And so, my Ned Stark cake pops were born. They’re not that different from regular cake pops, except I used a bamboo skewer that extends all of the way through the cake ball…and they’re kind of grotesque, funny, and awesome at the same time
Alduin The World Eater runs the risk of being eaten himself in this epic cake made by Vera from Baking Obsession for her son’s birthday. I think Vera deserves an award for potentially being the best mom ever!
The cake itself and the dragon was my attempt to reproduce a sculpture from a set of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition (a computer game by Bethesda). I started making it using photos I found on the internet. Later, when we purchased the set, I realized that my pretty birdy was getting way too big, almost twice the size of the statue. To make the whole thing proportional, I had to scale up the size of the cake itself. It was made of four 13″x18″ sheets of chocolate cake, soaked in strawberry syrup, and sandwiched with bittersweet strawberry ganache (5 lbs of chocolate). Alduin’s core is made of modeling chocolate. His scales, horns, and spikes are made from gum paste. The double-sided wings are half-and-half (fondant/gum paste). His eyes are Swarovsky crystals.
This necessitated making his legs and feet out of non-edible, structural materials (wood and polystyrene). His body and head is made entirely out of choc mud cake and icing.
R2D2 was the perfect opportunity to add a sound module to one of our cakes. These modules allow the cake to make any noise you can imagine with the push of a button. Music, sound effects, engine noises, talking, anything at all is possible.
This video below shows of the cakes sound module.
This amazing, edible and delicious looking 6′ 4″ tall Stormtrooper cake was constructed by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes for the Arisia Sci-Fi Convention in Boston.
Finally I can say that I want to eat a Stormtrooper without people thinking I’m off my rocker.
The stormtrooper stands at 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighed at least 300 lbs, and fed nearly 600 hungry conventioneers!
The building of the Stormtrooper cake was an epic event in and of itself. It took our entire wonderful crew of ten people two full weeks of to put this guy together (although the cake wasn’t added until 2 days before it was to be served). Along the way we even had to invent completely new cake making methods so it could be put together modularly onsite, hold its fondant over long vertical stretches, and stand on two beautifully sculpted Rice Kripsy legs that supported his 300 lb body –all while keeping every bit of cake tasting light, fluffy, and delicious!
