Architectural Dessert

For the Superbowl I decided to make something delicious and thematic. Instead, I made a cake shaped like a castle. I’m sure some sort of analogy can be made between sports strategy and ancient sieges (like chess’s origins as a military tactics game) but the reality is I saw a cool castle cake somewhere on the internet and stole the idea.

Here's the final result.

It tasted great, with the Hershey’s bricks working just fine in place of icing. I thought cutting it would be a bit of a challenge but it seemed to go ok, though the Oreo towers mostly remained uneaten. Here’re some more shots of the process.

Icing makes for good mortar.

Delicately selecting the first cut.
