The all-powerful ring from Lord of the Rings gets turned into dessert. This awesome One Ring cake was baked by the Cake Whisperer.
Taking on a task like making cupcakes that look like the main characters from Lord of the Rings is a bold choice – there are a lot of them! Cupcaketeer made 14 cupcakes for 14 characters including the Fellowship, Eowyn, Arwen, a Ringwraith, and more. They’re super cute, and I can’t imagine how much time went into sculpting everyone.

The water in Fangorn Forest isn’t exactly normal; the Ents of the woods loved Ent-draught. It’s perfect for them, but it has odd effects on hobbits. Drinking it helped Merry and Pippin become very tall hobbits. I’m not sure whether it will have that effect on humans, but I’d like to try! Food Through the Pages has analyzed the description and context and come up with a couple of versions of Ent-draught that you can try. She says:
The flavor of both draughts is unique, unlike anything I’ve tasted before. They have hints of familiar flavors, but presented in a wholly new way. Despite being dark tea-based brews, the finished draughts are as clear as water. I deem them to be as much of a success as a mere mortal can accomplish.

Usually you bring back magnets from places you visit and thanks to these designs from Weta, you can pretend you’ve gone to Middle Earth. Put the magnet from The Green Dragon on your fridge (it is a place you can visit now after all) and tell your friends about all the songs you heard and all the pints you tossed back.
The magnets are all produced in New Zealand and hand finished by local artisans.

Denny’s is taking their partnership with Warner Bros. to the next level. If you’ll remember, they are offering a menu inspired by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and now they’ve also sponsored a new featurette all about the meal at Bag End that marks the beginning of Bilbo’s adventures. A food stylist explains a little about the set, and then the cast of dwarfs destroys the beautiful spread (they were just following the script).
Warning: watching the video after the break will make you hungry.
