The thing I love about this cake is that you don't have to be a professional baker to make it. I tried to come up with a simple way to decorate this cake so everyone can enjoy! I think all of Westeros would be proud!

Step 1: Gather your supplies!

Sharon's B-day Cake 005 (640x480).jpg
The Cake:
You will need 3 pre-baked 8inx8inx2in cakes in your choice of flavor.
Frosting in your choice of flavor.

For Decorating:
Fondant (I bought a 10lb box and had about 1-2lbs left after)
Black Food Coloring (The Wilton brand has the best color with the least flavor)
Silver Color Mist Sugar Spray (Again Wilton is the way to go. Note: I bought 2 cans as shown in the picture, but one ended up being plenty!)
20-25 Wooden skewers or large lollipop sticks.

Tools:
Teaspoon
Paring Knife
Rolling Pin
Frosting Spatula
Serrated Knife
Sturdy Cake Board or Pan to Prepare and Present Cake on. (Note: This cake does get heavy so plan accordingly!)
Gloves and Clean Hands!


This cake completed feeds about 15+ people depending on how big you make the slices.

Step 2: Building the Shape of the Cake!

So the first thing you are going to do is take one of your cakes and a serrated knife to cut with. Cut out the chair arms and back board from it as shown in my little design. There will be extra cake that you won't use. You can use this to snack on and say you were just "taste testing" or maybe make yourself a mini cake out of it. Up to you!

Step 3: Building the Shape of the Cake Pt. 2!

Now grab your other 2 cakes, frosting, and frosting spatula. Put one cake down as your first layer on the board or sheet and frost. Put the second cake on top of that for layer two and frost. Then place your arm and back board on top of those layers and frost. Feel free to use my design picture for consulting and as you can see in the other picture, that is what your end result should resemble.

Amazing! How resourceful! When I first saw the photo, I thought the little yellow blob was the cake and you have another instructable for the chair somewhere.

Wow, that's fantastic!
this cake is so amazing! I make cakes too. Yours "takes the cake" so to speak. I put your instructable on my blog site sighroll.com. I think it epic. Well played! If you get a chance, check out my spaghetti and meatball cake on the site. <3

OMG… As the 1st picture had no scale reference I really thought that the crown was a big cake resting on a real armchair !…  and I though : "all this wonderful ironwork for a cake…" : "may be this is too much work for just a cake … "

So at 1st I had absolutely no idea the whole thing was a cake : this show how well you made it.

CONGRATULATIONS !
