It’s Monday…you’re back at work…and possibly searching for something to look at to kill a little time…am I right?
You know, my blog is most often visited during normal business hours on weekdays? I imagine you read your email, check in on Facebook, read a few blog posts, and then eventually get down to what you’re actually paid for. And this probably doesn’t happen just once each day – you probably repeat this cycle multiple times, hmmmm? Don’t worry, I won’t tell the boss. *wink*
Well, I’ve got just the thing for you today. A very…um, interesting groom’s cake.
They specifically wanted Hogwarts castle made out of cake. No problem! Except the hand-sculpted exact replica of the castle wasn’t in their wedding budget. So, instead, we used Wilton’s Romantic Castle Cake Set to create a cake that somewhat resembles Hogwarts.
And, he wanted us to put a bunch of sci-fi trinkets on the cake. Above, you see the castle cake without the trinkets. Below, you see the trinkets added.
Front and center, you see the ring from Lord of the Rings.
Behind that, are Aragorn’s necklace (Lord of the Rings) and Voldemort’s wand (Harry Potter).
On the next tier down, we had a lightsaber (Star Wars), the Batman logo, a Star Trek Communicator Badge, and ruby slippers (Wizard of Oz).
The ruby slippers were my personal favorite. Just look how they glitter!
Technical notes: The cakes were iced in buttercream and airbrushed in shades of brown and black to add depth. All sci-fi trinkets were made of gum paste.
