The quality of this Skyrim Alduin birthday cake is amazing. It barely even looks like a cake. It looks more like an awesome figure that you could buy. Vera from Baking Obsession made this cake for her son’s birthday, modeled it after a sculpture from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector’s Edition, to look just like Alduin the dragon.
The dessert was created from four 13″x18″ sheets of chocolate cake, soaked in strawberry syrup, and sandwiched with bittersweet strawberry ganache. Alduin’s core is made of modeling chocolate, which I guess is why it looks so good. It took Vera about 2 weeks just to model Alduin himself, let alone all the work on the cake part.
The scales, horns, and spikes are made from gum paste. The double-sided wings are part fondant and part gum paste. The eyes? Swarovsky crystals – so I guess you can’t eat those. This is one fierce looking cake. Great job, Vera!
