Once upon a time, decorating cakes consisted of homemade frosting and a spatula. These days, however, cake creation has developed into an art form that is technical enough to make one's head spin. Cake, frosting and fondant have evolved from edible delicacies into full-on sculptural elements that can be used to create some jaw-dropping stuff, like the cake pictured above. You might not realize it at first glance, but the whole thing is completely edible.
Deathwing's head was created to celebrate his demise in game -- and what a delicious way to celebrate!

If you're looking for elegance and flair, this stein cake may do the trick for you. The stein is completely edible and was made for a groom's cake by Cup a Dee Cakes. This is not a tiny cake, by any stretch of imagination -- the creation is nearly two feet tall and a masterpiece of design. The images on the sides are a combination of edible paper and painting, and the gold on top of the stein is actually modeling chocolate -- completely edible and doubtless completely tasty, too!
While I've fiddled with fondant before, I've never tried my hand at anything as complicated as this, and I doubt I could ever pull it off. It's a beautiful creation and even has that distinctive look of the Taverncraft steins, right down to the gorgeous handle detail. The gold coins on the cake stand just add to the overall beauty of this piece.
For more information on this amazing design as well as shots of the stand and how it was put together, you can check out the blog for Cup a Dee Cakes. And while you're there, I'd suggest browsing around the other creations they've made -- they may not all be Warcraft creations, but they're absolutely astonishing, intricate, and lifelike works of art.
