Die Hard’s John McClane Gets Made into a Realistic Cake

 |  |  |  |  |  December 18, 2020

No stranger to making unbelievably realistic cakes, pastry artist Natalie Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio in Austin, Texas recently made a John McClane bust cake from Die Hard, one of everybody’s favorite Christmas movies. Welcome to the party, pal!

John’s neck is constructed of chocolate modeling clay with alternating layers of vanilla cake and green buttercream making up the inside of his head. That has a coat of buttercream icing covering it to prevent air from getting to the cake and causing it to dry out, and a thin sheet of modeling chocolate acts as his skin. The rest is just sculpting that modeling chocolate and adding his facial features, then painting it all to look just like John McClane from the movie. Simple as pie! Except cake.

What a stunning piece of cake artistry. I’m not sure how I feel about eating somebody’s face though. But I bet Hans Gruber would dive right into it! And by dive, I obviously mean fall from the top of Nakatomi Plaza right into it.
