A LoTR-themed Birthday Cake

Birthday cake 2 (header)

Middle-earth sized celebration …

So another year has passed since my last birthday and lo and behold I discovered an unusual cake waiting for me on the kitchen table.

To say that I was impressed is an understatement. I marvelled at the intricate map and the tome-sized book-cake with the memorable fonts spelling out that magical 5-worded title.

For a long while, I was more interested in examining the minute details than wondering what it might taste like, as I found myself leaning against the table, wide-eyed and awe-struck.

The cake lay for a long while on the table, being surveyed and scrutinised from every possible angle. I tried to delay what followed, as much as possible.

Loth was I to destroy such a work of art by cutting it in half with a knife; but knowing the cake’s fate was inevitable, I decided to give it a proper and dignified incision by using a special prop …Birthday cake 4

My heart leapt out of my breast at the sight of the spongy book being dissected in half; but once the content was tasted, I eyed the remaining cake with an increased sense of wonder.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who made this day a special one and for such a prized, and well-consumed, gift.

Clearly, someone knows what kind of a fan I am …
