    Default Geeky cake number 3 -- Owlbear!

    So, I have started a tradition where I make a friend of mine a geeky cake every year for his birthday. The first year, it was a Beholder. Last year, it was a gelatinous cube.

    This year, it was an owlbear! This is chocolate cake sculpted by hand (well knife. but no special pans), frosted in the front with peanut butter frosting, in the back with chocolate buttercream. The eyes, beak, and claws are modelling chocolate. All made from scratch.









    It was a hit! Very very tasty, and very fun for my first time sculpting cake! (I don't count the beholder, really. Cutting those arms was really easy, and the eyes are cupcakes) More pictures of this and the other cakes here: http://shadowdream.com/gallery2/v/baking/cakes/ (I love the picture of its head on a platter. hehe. It stares at you when you open the fridge, at the moment)

    Next year, I'm thinking a dragon. I'm thinking big too, should I have the time. Cake sparkler blowing flame and everything. Put some miniatures made of chocolate down in front and let the flame melt them. Maybe a wizzy with a shield made of ice or blown sugar. We'll see.

    You got some crazy off the hook skill!

    I've dressed a few cakes, but OMG you are a pro!

    Thanks for the post. I needed a cheer up.

    Default I saw the thumbs up on the other thread

    They (whomever them may be?) should give you an award for this. I showed it to 2 other people that have no clue what DDO or DnD etc is and both said it looks like some sort of owl bear?

    You nailed it Kerry Strug style! Without injury of course.

    I, too, am awestruck from the sheer win of that cake.

    That cake looks great, and it's pretty close to the owlbears. Only problem i see is the owlbear is not blocking the camera view. Got my mouth watering.. i may have to try taking a bite out of my owlbear pet next time i log in..

    Poor owlbear. I have an idea he would not taste nearly as good as peanut butter and chocolate. Thank you!

    Oh that's fantastic! Thanks for showing it off, and thanks for the kind words!

    Are you geeky (you play ddo.. Most likely this is a yes. ), able to hold your own in an intelligent conversation or good natured insult battle, and have a few things that absolutely make your world go 'round that you enjoy sharing with others? At that point, chances are yes.

    Oooh. May have to do that one of these years. I'll need more practice sculpting though, because I'd want to actually make her stand.

    If you want to come and pick up the cake, SURE!

    I haven't logged in to Cannith in a long time. Thelanis lured me over with rp and I never left.

    Thank you very much! I'm glad I could be a distraction, I sure needed it, myself!

    Cake doesn't ship very well, unfortunately. If you're ever in the Michigan area, let me know. I'd be happy to make one for you!

    Thanks! I am too! Almost don't want to wait a whole year! I mean, my birthday and the hubby's are in November... (he doesn't like to celebrate his though. *pout* So no cake for him.)
