Cthulhu cake!


Wil sez, "My friend's wife made this awesome Cthulhu cake that was so awesome, I had to share it with BB readers. Also, awesome. Cake fhtagn!"
Here is Cthulhu rising from the oceans, using a convenient little island with a tower on it to climb up. The base was cherry-chip cake, the island and tower a mix of cherry chip and yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Also used small chocolate 'pearls' as rocks. Cthulhu himself is all fondant, with two chocolate pearls that I seeped in red dye for eyes.

  1. Is it wrong that I think that Cthulhu would taste better than cherry chip? It’s beautifully done. Cthulhu looks wistful and weary of being reviled.

  2. As impressive as it was delicious, I am sure! I am always amazed by bakers’ skills in creating custom cakes such as this one!

  3. Why can’t I ever find bakeries that do custom orders like this? They usually act like you’re a nut or something for asking.

  4. All these freaky colours on ‘modern’ cakes really spoil it for me…
    It makes the food look (/taste) chemical and artificial, in my opinion.

  5. Hey this cake is r’leyh interesting…

    Well, Cthulhu cultists aren’t known for their mental well being…

    What, you wanted a *wholesome* Cthulhu cake?

  6. THAT is adorable!! I’m going to have to dig out pictures of the Cthulhu cake a made to celebrate Lovecraft’s birthday a couple of years ago. It was demented fun to make, but not nearly as sinister as yours. Congrats!!

  7. I can just imagine how good it must taste!! I wonder if eating it gives you nightmares.
