This has been the tallest cake I have made yet. As you can see it’s taller than my second born. Only the body is cake. The legs and head are styrofoam and the sword is plywood covered in fondant. i tried making a sword from PVC and rice krispie treats (LCMs for the Aussies in the audience) put it ended up being way too heavy and just looking plain awful.
This cake also contains a hidden speaker and a sound chip that plays sword fighting noises when you press the button.
