My friend found and sent me these pics of the cake I made for her birthday two years ago. Since we are both huge Ringers, I decided to surprise her with a LOTR themed cake.
It's supposed to be Mordor and the hobbits are running away from the lava flowing from Mt. Doom. If you've read the book or seen the movie you'll know what I'm talking about.
Sauraun's eye is made from a gummy orange slice and the tower is two ho-hos stacked up.
The cake was devils food (evil land, of Mordor seemed fitting) topped with chocolate icing and red buttercream froasting.
I got the Sam and Frodo figure from a cake shop. I wanted to have a Gollum in the volcano but couldn't find one.
