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.

THIS IS GENIUS I TELL YOU
I love Sam, too. I think he was the real hero of RotK. I got all emotional when he carried Frodo up the mountain. I've got a comic based on that on the way.
Saurons eye is a bit comical. I wouldn't consider it dangerous... But anyway, COOL!
And everyone at the party got really drunk and started doing obsene things to the tower. I could not post those pics. hee-hee!
