When I was asked to make this cake I got pretty excited, especially since the home of Hobbits, otherwise known as Hobbitton and the location for the movie to be filmed, is about 1 and 1/2 hours drive away from where I live in New Zealand. This is my take on a Hobbit hole and my original design didn’t have the tree, but after I had sculpted it I felt it just needed to be there. I love the finished effect of the tree, I haven’t done this before with individually wired leaves but I found a very easy technique.
This was for a 13 year old who was from Australia but celebrating her birthday in NZ with her school group. They were all going to Hobbitton this afternoon after celebrating with the Birthday girl.
