Must be part elf [Feb. 7th, 2009|05:38 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |impressedimpressed]

Take a look at this interpretation of Minas Tirith.





Kind of cool? Even cooler when you realize that it's a wedding cake.

The only inedible part is the cliff face. I totally want to get married again, just so I can have this cake. The detail is amazing, when you consider the medium in which it is made. Alas, you will note that there is no link here to the genius baker who produced it. That's because it was done by the bride's sister, who is not a professional baker, as a labor of love.

That's a lot of love.

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!

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!

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.

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.

Beautiful!

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:

Holy.

I could actually consider marriage, if it meant a cake like that.

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.
