Cake with Gandalf on Shadowfax, Beacon & Pippin

Pastry Chef Kirsti Hanna created this almost completely edible cake. She writes: “The biggest challenge with this cake was the beacon. I used squares of cake to make the box, then had lots of fun icing around the sides and shaping it. Then I cut out the center. Everything, except the candles and the two figures, is edible. Even the rocks (chocolate with a candy coating) and the big rocks/hills in back (air-brushed angel-food cake).” Wow! [See Larger Photo]
