For those who don't know, the Amulet of Mara is an item in the video game "Skyrim" that (theoretically) allows you to take the hand of any eligible bachelor/bachelorette of your choosing. My personal experiences with this item were cruel and cutting: the first time I attempted to marry my in-game wife Mjoll, the game glitched and she never showed up to our wedding. I was left standing there in front of half a dozen NPCs, twiddling my thumbs, totally jilted. I reloaded and tried again; this time, after the wedding she wordlessly walked out and disappeared from the game entirely. I ran through Riften looking for her, and only found creepy Aerin walking alone, telling me how he's "never seen Mjoll's this upset," etc. Mmm. Thanks, buddy.
This Instructable will show you how to make your own edible Amulet of Mara to go atop a romantic cake or giant cookie or humongous sweetroll. Give it to your Skyrim-loving sweetie and hopefully they will treat you better than Mjoll did me.
Please excuse the photo quality; my cake workspace is on a desk in the corner of a room in a basement and it's hard to get any natural light!
Fondant (I used about 5oz)
CMC or Tylose
Food colouring (yellow and blue at the very least)
Gold, brown and black luster dust
Vodka or Lemon Extract (or any clear grain alcohol)
A set of clay or fondant modelling tools (optional but extremely helpful)
A very small paint brush and some water
