Mass Effect Wedding Cake

You can expect nothing short of amazement on a massive level from your guests if you’ve got something as awesome as this Massive Effect  Normandy SR-2 for your wedding cake. This awesome creation was baked by Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake, and is actually made from rich Red Velvet cake covered in modeling chocolate. The detail on the wings was achieved by constructing them from sugar paste.

I love the birthday message that’s obviously a promotional bit that poor Commander Shepard is being forced to participate in once again. Now, someone break me off a wing, I want some cake!
