Yep. That would be a Tremors cake–and a wedding cake, no less–full of horrific Graboids and inspired by the 1990 movie.
Credit goes to our ol’ internets-pal Marie of Celebration Generation, formerly of Unrivaled Super Mario Cake fame, but now officially of Immortalizing Kevin Bacon as a Tiny Chocolate Cowboy in a Tuxedo fame.
Whoever would have thunk that a cake featuring ravenous graboids and Val and Earl’s handyman truck would win a silver medal at Chocolate Show?
Not me, man. But I try to limit my thunking-centric activities.
Thanks be to Marie for providing me with the cake’s deets:
…this is Milk Chocolate Cardamom Pear cake. Moist milk chocolate cake with a hint of cardamom to warm it up, then each of the 3 layers of filling is a Milk chocolate-cardamom ganache with sliced up poached pears. Yum!
I’d love to tell you what cardamom is, but when I went to Wikipedia to look it up, all I found was more made-up words:
The name “cardamom” is used for herbs within two genera of the ginger family Zingiberaceae, namely Elettaria and Amomum.
Candy plant. Gotcha.
