Edible hobbit house


This edible hobbit house was cleverly done by the daughter of a good friend for my birthday cake yesterday. It was quite appropriate, really, as I had just seen the second Hobbit movie the previous night.

It is made of chocolate cake, with a gingerbread facade and tree, and green-coloured shredded coconut as the grass.

Clare is quite talented in this line. Below is what she made for my birthday last year.


Maybe there’s a market for her work?! You could use it as terrain for your game, then eat it for a snack afterwards. And damage from catapults or magic could be replicated with some judicious bites!

    1. There’s actually enough cake and gingerbread in this structure for a third or fourth breakfast, Matthew. Especially if you like vivid green food-coloured coconut.
