This Superb Shrake Cake was made by Lucinda Crestworth, Order of the Phoenix – Mayen Orido from Way Beyond Cakes By Mayen.
This Superb Shrake Cake was made for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Collaboration.
The collaboration of food artists from around the world, known as Birthday Mischief Managed have assembled to debut their second installment of edible art in celebration of world-renowned author, J.K. Rowling’s screenwriting debut and newest movie trilogy – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, is an A to Z “textbook” of magical creatures that have been featured in the Potter film series and publishing’s of J.K. Rowling. For this collaborative effort some of the beasts were removed from the list inside the textbook and each artist was asked to create the remaining using only their imaginations and the book’s descriptions with sweet edible mediums. Each artist has dressed for the occasion and transformed themselves into “Magizoologist”. Be sure to visit their pages and read the documents kept about their beast.
Our biggest challenge was resisting the urge to research, (cheat) pictures of our assigned beasts. The group has made sweet magic. My only regret is not having a pet Kneazle.” – Michelle “ChefMitchie” Curran aka Michaeleas Cuuragusta, Headmistress
Here is Mayen’s description of this Fabulous Edible Beast:
Study/Beast: Gorgomare, to mean “sea devil,” because of its ferocious feeding habits and unforgiving nature Name: Lord Voldemere, named for command reasons Notable Behaviors: Esca at the tip of dorsal rod blooms and glows when it detects the presence of prey. Highly sensitive to light other than its own. Lurks in deep waters and rests among rocks, unmoving unless to feed and/or attack. Spikes covering the body release poison into the surrounding waters when beast feels threatened. Extremely territorial. Feeding notes: Carnivorous. Enjoys devouring prey that struggles to get free. Keeps fang-like teeth sharp by feeding on bone and the occasional rock it mistakes for food. Can go for days without feeding, but gets very aggressive and ruthless. When famished, often gnaws on surrounding rocks to display displeasure by making a mess and turning water murky. Also grows extra spikes to show defiance when underfed. Injuries sustained by Caretaker and aide taken: skin burns and severed pinky finger after accidentally dipping hand in beast’s tank to retrieve dropped wand. Applied burn-healing paste and drank Skele-gro. Injuries sustained by Beast and aide taken: beast’s spikes became brittle after filling the tank using Aguamenti spell. Immediately replaced tank with seawater. Let beast recuperate, undisturbed, in the dark, for one moon cycle. Has study been released if you took it captive? If yes, where?Beast still in captivity to study if toxin levels in water change when beast is put under Immobulus spell. *No additional notes.
