So, I'm a total World of Warcraft nerd, and for my birthday in July, I made a hunter-themed cake. I wasn't going for something aesthetically perfect, but rather a way to try a cantilever cake and improve hand-painting. (Most family-freebie cakes are used in the same manner.)

Cake here: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1745566.html

After I was done, I submitted it to a well-known World of Warcraft blog, and after a month or so went by, just figured it wasn't chosen.

Until Monday. I was soooo excited, I was bouncing in my chair.

It's the third cake in the post, and yes, Emrldsky is the name I use nearly everywhere, so if you see that name posting elsewhere, it's probably me.

Grats! I'm a WoW geek and I love seeing elements from the game turned into cake ^.^ I saw the post on WoW Insider and thought yours looked familiar. It looks really cool and I love the concept of using spell icons on the sides of the cake!
