Ok, i confess, my name is Hannah I’ve never heard of ‘Game of Thrones’
So when I was asked to make a ‘Game of Thrones’ cakes i quickly hid the blank look on my face to hit the internet super-speedily to find out more. It seems that by living in my sugary cloud of icing I have accidently missed one of the most popular book/TV series to have been created in recent history. Oops. (Note to self, I really should consider getting out more!)
This cake was to be a chocolate cake for 100 people, and include the following elements – the wall Of ice, the black dragon, dire wolves, the coats of arms for the main ‘Game of Throne’ houses and of course the throne itself.
I’ll admit to using google images quite extensively for research this cake. (It was either that or read all five books in two weeks and I’d struggle to finish reading a recipe let alone a book or five!) Anyhow, after a lot of button clicking and scanning geek, ahem – i mean - fan forums I finally felt i had a grip on what was needed and set to work creating the wall of ice that would be the main body of the cake.
Once this was done I could work up the trickiest modelling I’ve done to date. There was a huge amount of work involved as each model was both complicated and detailed, and I was very determined to create fantasy figurines rather than cartoon-ish models often associated with sugarpaste.
With everything finished and dried I assembled the two elements together (the wall and the models) whilst holding my breathe that everything would fit on the cake, hold together firmly and securely and most importantly look damn cool.
The day after the cake was picked up I received this photo and message.
Thank you so much for the wonderful Game of Thrones cake you made for my brothers 30th last week – as you can see he was very chuffed! It looked amazing and tasted even better!
