My hubby loves Home Star Runner (well, Trogdor, really) and so for his birthday this year I decided to make him, completely from scratch,  The Trogdor Cake to End All Trogdor Cakes. 

It was constructed from two chocolate sheet cakes, topped with chocolate buttercream frosting, then a ridiculous amount of marshmallow fondant containing an utterly obscene amount of food coloring.  The cake itself turned out a little dry, unfortunately, but by the time I was done with the decorating, eating it felt almost beside the point.  Our guests still managed to make a pretty big dent in it at the party.

On to the photos!

Finished trogdor, complete with wing-a-lings, big beefy arm, consummate 'V's, angry eyebrows and thatched roof cottages to burninate (cupcakes topped with shredded wheat and candles):


Close ups of big beefy arm, wing-a-lings, and face.




With the hubster for size reference:


and burninating cottages!


This was my first time decorating a cake (aside from just frosting a standard cake) and my first time using fondant.  It took me almost two days to make: cakes and fondant made on day one, cake assembly, frosting, and all decorating done on the second day.  There was much sweat, though no blood or tears. 

He LOVED it so it was worth it.  I may have blown my wad though.  I have no idea how I will top it, or even come close next year!!

Let me know what you think!

Thatched-roof cottages!!! Awesome. I love the attention to detail. I don't think anything could top a Trogdor cake.
