Yes geeks, what you’re seeing above is indeed a birthday cake. Vera from Baking Obsession made this cake for her son’s birthday to look like Alduin, the final boss from Skyrim’s main storyline.
It was made of four 13″x18″ sheets of chocolate cake, soaked in strawberry syrup, and sandwiched with bittersweet strawberry ganache (5 lbs of chocolate). Alduin’s core is made of modeling chocolate. His scales, horns, and spikes are made from gum paste. The double-sided wings are half-and-half (fondant/gum paste). His eyes are Swarovsky crystals.
