RavingChild's birthday is a few days before Halloween, and usually his birthday party has the same theme as his Halloween costume. Since Halloween was Gimli the Dwarf this year, we needed to come up with an LOTR-themed cake. After some discussion, it was decided that the cake should embody the ultimate Evil of the LOTR saga - the lidless Eye of Sauron.
And the other ultimate Evil - Bundt cake.

I just showed this to my LotR obsessed mother (who prides herself on making ridiculously OTT themed cakes) and I think she might need resuscitation...

Can you make a smaller more manageable version for like a cupcake?
