I get to make cakes for so many different occasion and themes that each one is generally different and present different challenges. But, I do have a cake bucket list. Last year I was able to tick off Harry Potter and have been lucky enough to do another one since with a totally different design too.
When I got an email with the words 'Game of Thrones', my heart did a little flip! Yes, another one on my bucket list. I was lucky to be given pretty much free range on it (I think it soon became apparent that I'm a bit of a GoT geek!). So here it is:
This Diawolf was modelled totally by hand, I gradually built up the textures and sprayed it silver.
The Iron Throne has a base of rice krispie treats, I then produced my own amoury to cover it with icing swords.
The Weirtree was hand modelled by twisting icing and adding texture.
The 'blood' was white chocolate ganache coloured red. It was a bit of a leap of faith pouring that over!
So, there we go, another tick on my list. Incase you're interested, The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz are still on there.....
