Check Out this Epic 100lb Cake for Epic Flick "Battleship"
When you make a movie about a massive battleship, it's only fitting that you celebrate the premiere with a massive cake, right?
We were sent this photo of the cake creation made by Baltimore-export and Food Network personality Duff Goldman's Charm City Cakes West bakery for the premiere last night of Battleship. This was no Betty Crocker basic box job, either, we were told:
The cake was 100 pounds and took 200 hours to make. There was a staff of ten working on the massive cake and some it utilized close to 50 LEDs (red to simulate cannon fire, and white strung along the mast). It also had a built in smoke machine, a poured Isomalt base mixed with blue food coloring to simulate the ocean and a hand-painted backdrop.
An you thought a chocolate fountain was the ultimate for your last party, hmmm?
By the way, "Battleship " opens May 18. Here's the trailer, with apologies we don't all get a slice of cake with it:
