That's f'in amazing.
Hey, cool! Then if the wedding guests are fans of TLOTR, then they can act like they're the forces of Mordor as they eat the cake. :-D
As the bride, I would probably be like forces of Gondor and try to stop them from eating it!
According to the blog entry, it was edible. I was thinking that the lights might mostly be between the rows and the lit-from-within houses made of sugar or something. You are much more of an expert than I, though. Here's the link
to the wedding pictures. They aren't trying to sell anything, so..[shrug]
LED lights would work and not give off heat. And they come in that same warm color and have been used on cakes before.
Also, Charm City Cakes have done cakes with lighting--and sirens. I am thinking of the squad car. I think fondant is more resistant to the melting factor-at a guess. I am not a professional cake baker.
Sorry; I did not mean to frustrate you!!!
Christmas lights? Low heat?
Saw one a few weeks back that was a giant red dragon from D&D - complete with a D20 in his claws. It WAS from a pro shop - that ships nationwide. I was ready to go out and have a party just for something like that!
*where words fail, punctuation almost suffices*
My solution when I am overwhelmed like that is to share it on LJ so others may be boggled in kind. ;-)
DA-YUM. Said sister has to have a lot of experience with baking, though, to pull that off. XD I mean, I love people a whole lot, but my baking skills just aren't that good yet. ;D I'm workin' on it, though. I gots the books, at least... Just need the practice.
Oh, yeah, clearly not someone who just bought her first Betty Crocker cake mix last week!
It would be so cool to see the sliced cake, the description of it is amazing. Also wandered over to their wedding photographs, what a cute couple.
I don't imagine them slicing it so much as lifting off buildings and bisecting them. I wish there had been more close-up pictures of their garb. They really went all out.
I like creative cakes. I'm completely amateurish, nowhere even close to the skills of this cake-maker... but I was proud of the one I made that was a fondant rendition of my partner's arctic base camp:http://cyan-blue.livejournal.com/563903.htmlEdited at 2009-02-07 11:39 pm (UTC)
I bet she was Orthancful to have that done
I could actually consider marriage, if it meant a cake like that.
Seriously! Like, mail order groom, seriously!
I totally want one. Even if I'm not getting married.
Well, you could always have it at your 10th wedding anniversary or something. Or 25th, whichever. XD My parents had a huge to-do for their 25th wedding anniversary, renewed their vows on the ship that they first met on (they both grew up around boats, albeit for different reasons). It was lovely, except there was some hilarious spelling mistake on their cake that I forget now. XD
That looks a lot like *googles* *googles more* *darn, I was there once*
ah, Mont St Michel
Except, you know, taller. And lit from the inside. And not situated in the middle of nowhere.
In other words, way cool.
The modeling on that page is really cool, though.
And that's why they invented anniversary parties!
(Or Valentine's, but I'm not sure you can just run down to the Walmart and order one of *those* cakes last minute.)
(I mean, you *could*, but you'd probably end up on Cake Wrecks.)
Yes, and finding someone who could actually do it would probably require several years.
Cake Wrecks is awesome.
Cake Wrecks is
I made several people weep with laughter with this one

...and on a completely off-topic note, have you ever heard of Darths and Droids (www.darthsanddroids.net)?
They're doing all six movies as if it were a role-playing game (Like DM of the Rings, with screencaps from the movies). They're just starting Ep. 2 this week. Their version of Phantom Menace makes much more sense than canon, sadly.
...that was still me--don't know why it logged me out.
I didn't know about this! I loved DM of the Rings, and this is definitely in the same spirit - he even gives Seamus Young a nod. Thanks for the link; I will definitely be reading it!

i want that cake!
Hmmm... *wonders if third anniversary is too soon to try for a cake like that*
Thanks for the pic and link. Really enjoyed it. :)
