My brother Jordan got married this summer. I've made wedding and/or grooms cakes for my other 4 siblings and so, for years me and Jordie have been joking about what kind of grooms cake I would make for him. He always said that he wanted Saurons tower from Lord of the Rings or something else from that series that would be equally hard for me to construct. But what man can imagine what his bride might want? Rebecca didn't want a big fussy wedding and reception. She wanted (and had) a beautiful wedding on the beach in California. A lovely informal reception was planned for family and friends here in Utah who couldn't attend the wedding. Rebecca never really planned to have a wedding cake and I couldn't really make a cake for the groom without something for the bride. So I created this sweet little hobbit house for both of them.

|The windows on the hobbit house are made from sheets of gelatin. The cake itself is a Gluten Free vanilla and fudge marble cake with cream cheese frosting and chocolate ganache.|
|Little Gnocchi (yes one of their cats is named after pasta) fearlessly plays within reach of the dragons teeth.|
