My "better half" is a big Game of Thrones fan. And he's having his birthday today (the 9th of June) and he's getting his masters degree tomorrow (the 10th) and the last episode of GOT season3 comes out somewhere in between. So I had to make him a GOT themed cake:)



I made the fondant at home (although I've sworn I will never ever try to make it again a million times before) and it wasn't that good, so the iron throne isn't as detailed as I hoped it would be. The fondant was too sticky and too crumbly at the same time and I could barley cut all of the swords out.
The cake part is supposed to be a homage to the Starks and Winterfell, the red leaves are supposed to be heart tree leaves (I have a fondant cutter for leaves that I got in a crafster swap ages ago and I never used it before. This seemed like a good opportunity:)). The sword and blood (strawberry jam that is also inside of the cake) were just an afterthought because the cake seemed bare, but I kinda like how they look.



thanks for looking and C&C are always welcome:)

Nice cake, and I love the "blood" =) Did you have any melting problem with the strawberry jam ? The fondant didn't really like liquids during my last attempt.

Never ignore a coincidence. Unless you're busy, in which case always ignore a coincidence.

I had no problems. Aside from the jam running down the side a little, nothing changed. Maybe it's because of the gel like consistency (I guess piping gel is kind of the same, though I never used it before) or maybe my home made fondant does have some good qualities to it:)
