bombur spoon

In The Hobbit films, we definitely get the impression that Bombur likes his food. He is a very determined eater, and he’s the most portly of the dwarf’s adventuring company. Therefore, if you’re going to woodburn the character into anything, a spoon is pretty much perfect.

This design by Julia Salveny features an intricate portrait of the character on one side accompanied by the phrase “When I eat, I am deaf and dumb.” It appears in Dwarf Runes on the other side. Rather than using it as a utensil, I think I’d keep this for display purposes only.

thorin latte



Denny’s is jumping back into the hobbit hole with a themed menu for The Desolation of Smaug. They embraced the first installment of The Hobbit trilogy last year, and it was apparently successful enough to warrant another take. It looks about as unappetizing as last time though. They’ve brought back the Hobbit Hole Breakfast but also added Sweet Potato Pecan Pancakes, Smaug’s Fire Burger, Bowman’s Brew Pumpkin Coffee, Honey Cakes French Toast, and Bard’s Pumpkin Pie Milkshake. I mean, I can picture Thorin sitting down and slurping a milkshake, can’t you?

Though this is an okay gimmick, I desperately wish New Line would partner with a restaurant that could actually execute recipes from the book and movies. Sigh.

Be sure to click the menu to enlarge.

Bilbo Baggins cake

Until he sets off with the company of dwarves in The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins was quite a homebody. He liked to be in Bag End reading or having tea rather than out in the rain and cold without the comforts of home. When he returned from his adventure, he had to write about it. This cake by Marianne features the hobbit in a comfortable chair surrounded by maps, books, a sketch of Gandalf, and even the ring. It’s nothing short of amazing.

bag end door ice cream sandwich

It’s summertime, and that means it’s hot. Ice cream is a necessity this time of the year and if you can make the experience nerdy, all the better. Tikkido has a straightforward how-to on making ice cream sandwiches that look like the door of Bag End. It takes a little time, but these would be so perfect for a Hobbit themed party. You make sugar cookie dough, color it, cut out circles, add wood grain and door knobs – tada! Bilbo Baggins would be flattered by the creations.

hobbit invitation collage top

I am amazed by all of the things uber crafty mom Nikki did to give her daughter Niamh the best darn Hobbit party ever on the planet. I mean, I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

So here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to post some pictures and give you the basic rundown and then I’m going to suggest you head to Nikki’s blog because, aside from making all of this stuff, she posted a DIY on pretty much all of it.

I expect to be invited to Hobbit parties soon. Just sayin’. Check out the awesome after the break.

firebreathing smaug cake

There are dragon cakes and then there are fire breathing dragon cakes. This sugary goodness by Zion is worthy of the word “epic”. Clearly, she is a fan of The Hobbit, so she made the Smaug cake for her son’s birthday. Yeah, that’s better than any amount of birthday candles. I hope the flavor is red velvet.
