Labyrinth Mural Cake

Labyrinth Mural Cake

Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle, beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child that you have stolen. My will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me. Labyrinth is in my opinion one of the greatest movies ever made, and it certainly played a big part in my life growing up. When I first had the idea of creating a Buttercream Labyrinth Cake, it was for something far more simple, and 2 dimensional, but I don't like to do anything by halves, so not only did I aim for 3D, but 100% Buttercream. I am so very proud of this cake. Not only because it looks good, but because it would have been so easy to settle. I could have made something with a hint of Labyrinth, and it would still have looked good, but I took the risk, and put SO much work into a cake that I had no idea what reception it would get. I'm thrilled to say that the response has been overwhelming, and while it's nice to hear nice things about your work, what is even better, is hearing how many people are inspired to try something DIFFERENT. Something outside their comfort zone, or what they thought could be done. That just fills me with so much joy. I'm also thrilled to hear people trying things by hand. We are losing far too many 'skills' because there's a tool/mould/gadget for that, and while I appreciate innovation, I'm energised by true Artisan efforts. I'm trying to sound preachy, but I personally am more moved or impressed by a work that has created at every step of the process. I hope you enjoy "Labyrinth Mural Cake", and I will have a blog post coming this week about how I put it all together <3
