The Cake in the Sword

Today is World Book Day. My son’s school celebrated by encouraging everyone to bring a dish inspired by a book. Naturally we had to make cake.

For Christmas some old friends came him Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan. He laughed, he loved it. When he loves a book, I’m ecstatic. Apparently there’s a rather irreverent sword in the book. His name is Jack and he goes on dates with talking axes. Or something like that.

One chocolate cake later … et voilà!


Actually the blade broke when I lifted it onto the sheet. Which in my mind makes it more Narsil than Jack. My son hasn’t got to Lord of the Rings yet. I told him he has to read the whole thing at least once. After that it’s okay to go “cool stuff happens … elf song (skip skip skip) … more stuff happens … more elf songs (skip skip skip) … Sam and Frodo in Mordor (skip skip skip) …

Maybe that can be the next cake project…
