Continuing our coverage of Cakes From Middle Earth, here is the logo of this Wonderful cake and sugar art collaboration. This film has a picture of the Terrific works of thirty talented cake decorators and sugar artists from New Zealand who have joined together to celebrate the film works of Peter Jackson.
Since this collaboration honors Peter Jackson, it is only fitting to have a cake that represents him. This Superb Sir Peter Jackson Cake was made by Sarah Clark of The Cake Tin. The detail of this edible artwork is amazing. The head was made using a solid chocolate skull base covered in modeling chocolate for all of the facial features and hair. His torso was made using Rice Krispies Treats covered in modeling chocolate. It took three hours to make the beard and five hours to make the hair by cutting individual strands of hair. His shirt and jacket were made using fondant. She did a great job with his eyes.

These Marvelous Sugar Art Stiletto shoes were created by Jo Orr of Ciccio Cakes. These wonderful edible creations were inspired by Peter Jackson’s films including: Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, King Kong, District 9, The Adventures of Tintin, The Lovely Bones, Heavenly Creatures, The Frighteners, Crossing the Line, Valley of the Stereos, West of Memphis, Jack Brown Genius, Forgotten Silver, Bad Taste, Braindead, and Meet the Feebles. These shoes would make great cake toppers. The shoe theme was chosen to pay homage to Fran Walsh, Peter Jackson’s spouse. The large gold star in the middle represents Sir Peter Jackson’s star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood that he received on Monday. Each shoe expertly incorporates elements of the film it represents in the edible medium of gumpaste.
