The Iron Throne Cake (Chocolate Orange Marble Cake)

I seem to have started a competition with myself when it comes to my friend's birthday. It all started when I made her a wicked the musical cake, which turned out really well (see one of my earlier posts). I had to try to beat it this year! Her birthday this year coincided with the start of the new GoT (Game of Thrones) series. I had the crazy idea of recreating the Iron Throne as a cake. To be honest, I didn't think I would pull it off...

I baked 6 chocolate orange marble cakes (circular and rectangular) and then I embarked on the most insane sculpture I have ever created. 

Cutting, shaping, covering with fondant icing, chocolate work, rice paper, edible spray painting.. It seemed like a never ending job that took time across a whole weekend. Eventually the Iron Throne was complete. After a very stressful hour car journey in a box (hoping and praying it wouldn't fall apart) I was able to present it in one piece!

It was pretty good, if I do say so myself! Now I have an even bigger job cut out for me next year!
