Step 10: Cover the Holy Hand Grenade

Roll out a piece of gold colored fondant (tint with 10 drops of yellow to 1 drop of red) and cover the ball cake.  It may bunch up a little at the bottom, that's OK because we're going to cover that up later.  Now get out your alcohol again and some gold luster dust.  Mix a tiny bit of alcohol with some luster dust and paint your Holy Hand Grenade a lovely shade of gold.  You may have noticed that the Holy Hand Grenade looks a little lumpy, that's OK too, the original looked suspiciously like it was made from a coconut.

Epic! Tim would be verily proud.
This is our first ible? Awesome! Great job. Also, as one who watched &quot;Monty Python&quot;s Flying Circus&quot; on PBS a few centuries back, I'm glad to know there are still people who appreciate genius grade insanity.
Thanks! it is my first one. I figured an undertaking as important as the Holy Hand Grenade should be duly documented. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the office recognized it right away when it was wheeled in for the unsuspecting recipient.
Now do the same thing again, but as a prank and have it blow up in someone's face. Just like it should.
LOL. I can see it now...
Blessed is thy cake. With it may you serve slices in tiny bits.
AHHH! You said the word! I will say Ni to you, unless you bring me a shrubery!
Is it &quot;and&quot;? No? Well in that case I shall say....... IT IT IT IT IT IT IT IT!
Monty Python :D.
lol that thing killed a rabbit this one has so much sugar it'll kill anyone who eats it XD
Looks great. Seems like you spent a lot of money on a cake, though.
Thanks! I already had all of the equipment, so the groceries didn't cost too much.
No one expects this...<br> <br> <sub>you might want to footnote your ible before someone goes jihading with it.</sub>
One Two Five... I mean three
This cake is the most holiest of all thou cakes. We obviously must put it on a pedestal in the Vatican with guards surrounding me.
