This epic collection of edible Lantern cakes comes from That’s Nerdalicious reader Jason Tinling. He writes:
Another set of geek cakes from the wife and I. Our buddy Ryan just recently returned from a year of work in Afghanistan and was celebrating his 40th birthday, so we needed to “go big.” Since Ryan is a huge Green Lantern fan, we knew where we were going with this cake design. We ended up with 8 x 6″ round cakes, 3 layers thick. The green cakes were 10″ and 8″ rounds, also 3 layers thick.
Death/Black – Chocolate cake with fudge buttercream
Life/White – White cake with vanilla buttercream
Rage/Red – Red Velvet pound cake with cream cheese buttercream
Avarice/Orange – Carrot pound cake with cream cheese buttercream
Fear/Yellow – White cake with Meyer lemon curd filling and cream cheese buttercream
Love/Purple – Chocolate cake with plum filling
Hope/Lt Blue – White cake with blueberry filling
Compassion/Indigo/Dk Blue – Choclate cake with strawberry filling
Will/Green (Base) – Marble cake with vanilla and fudge buttercream
Will/Green (Top) – Dark chocolate cake with kiwi fruit curd filling
The lantern was crafted from Cocoa Rice Kripsy treat, fondant and gum paste.
I’d like a slice of Avarice and Rage please 😉
