What’s cold and sharp and bled all over?
THE IRON THRONE!
So gather your dire wolves, dragons, and impaled heads on stakes, my friends, because WINTER IS COMING:
If impaled head stake cake pops aren’t your thing, then how about this fabulous Weirwood heart tree?
It’s always nice to see a baker branching out.
I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that a show named Game of Thrones has so many throne cakes – but what IS surprising is how awesome this one is:
The crown, the chained dragon, the carved wood detail? YES, PLEASE.
Oh, you need a place for birthday candles? Nooo problem:
C’mon. That is GENIUS.
Ok, enough thrones. How about some house sigil cupcakes?
Or everyone’s favorite character?
Those airbrushed flames are perfection.
Of course, I know Daenerys isn’t everyone’s favorite character, so let me quickly cover all the other potential candidates:
(There was a fan at MegaCon last week who turned his wheelchair into the Iron Throne, and then dressed as Tyrion, complete with false legs. It was so. cool.)
House Targaryen does have the sweetest emblem, though:
And it’s hard to beat the mother of dragons, if only because she has the best stuff in her closet:
Closet, chest… CLOSE ENOUGH.
Some couples are even having dragon eggs made for their wedding cakes, which is a surprisingly elegant touch of geekery:
And speaking of elegant, ALL OF THIS:
From the cobblestone board to the chain mail to the sculpted emblems, I’m pretty sure George R.R. Martin would need at least 300 pages to describe this cake.
(OH YES I DID.)
And finally, it’s time for me to come clean: I’ve never seen a single episode of Game of Thrones.
But I will say this:
You gonna eat that?
