This Marvelous Meet the Feebles Cake was made by Nina Blackburn of Make Pretty Cakes for the Cakes From Middle Earth Cake Collaboration. This cake features Heidi, the femme fatale in Meet the Feebles. This Heidi is loosely based on the black and white snapshot of Heidi in the Crossing the Line Cake from this cake collaboration.
This cake was created from several chocolate cakes, carved and covered in Cadbury chocolate ganache. The couch is 35 centimeters long. Heidi was created using cake covered in fondant. The legs and arms were made using fondant mixed with Tylose powder. The stockings were painted on with a mixture of rainbow dust colors. An edible gold pen was used for the gold accents. The eyes, hair, and clothes were made using modeling chocolate.

This Magnificent The Lovely Bones Cake was made by Keren Maxwell of Iced by Kez for the Cakes From Middle Earth Cake Collaboration. Since the Gazebo was Susie Salmon’s safe place between worlds, Keren wanted to include it on the cake.The Gazebo represents unfulfilled love because it was where Susie was going to meet the boy she liked, but she died before she could.
The background for the cake is a piece of wood with a laser engraved photo from the movie. It shows Susie in between worlds with one of her dad’s ‘ship in a bottle’ in the distance. This cake is 10 inches tall with a wonderful hand painted scene. The Gazebo topper was made using fondant mixed with Tylose powder.

This Superb Lovely Bones Cake was made by Paula Andrew for the Cakes From Middle Earth Cake Collaboration. It features the penguin inside the snow globe from Susie’s father’s desk. Susie would worry about the penguin being alone. Her father would say to her,”Don’t worry, Susie; he has a nice life. He’s trapped in a perfect world.” This quote was the inspiration for this Splendid Peter Jackson cake.
This Snow globe was made using using Isomalt. Fondant was used to make the figure, the cake base, and sugar flowers. Silicone molds were created and used to make some of the pieces.
