Baking up beautiful, sometimes geeky cakes in South-East England is nothing new for Natalie Porter of Immaculate Confections. Her baking career even started on a geeky note when her fiancé Christopher requested their wedding cake to be shaped like Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings. ”Three enormous cakes, 3 dummy cakes and a mountainous peninsula made of cardboard and gaffer tape later, it was ready to decorate! And fortunately it worked out a treat. It provided the perfect, if somewhat geeky, cake for our wedding day,” says Natalie.
Now Natalie runs her own cake business and her latest cake creation is inspired by Doctor Who’s iconic TARDIS for a top to a wedding cake. Every little detail down to the signage and door handles has been recreated for an obviously amazing customer’s wedding.

I searched the web for some of the best Hobbit and Lord of The Rings inspired nail art to get you, and your fingers, ready for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey! Starting with the always impressive work of Kayleigh OC with her Hobbit-hole inspired nails. “I’ve never tried anything on this scale before,” says Kayleigh, “it’s a solid, 3D nail which is supposed to resemble a little Hobbit-hole. It’s about an inch long and an inch high, made using clay, fake grass stuff and acrylic paints/nail varnishes.
Inspired by Gandalf the Grey, Kayleigh OC also created these nails and included Gandalf’s pipe on the little finger and his hat and staff on the middle one. She even added just a touch of sparkle to the tips. “I don’t think Gandalf would mind a bit of glitter,” says Kayleigh.

This stacked collection of geeky books wedding cake was made by Jana of Jana’s Fun Cakes based in Los Angeles, Ca.
“…It was for my cousin Jenn and her fiance Michael. They are both really into fantasy..Star Wars, Lord of the Rings…etc…So they didn’t want just an ordinary wedding cake. Together we came up with this concept of a stack of vintage books left in the forest. My mom did all of the detail work, the twigs, ferns, acorns…etc….which looked awesomeee! This cake is really stunning all put together and truly represented them as a couple. And that makes me smile.”

This cake was originally designed for the OSSAS wedding division, which had to be based on something from “Tinsal Town.” I chose to base it off of the trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings.” Unfortunately, I didn’t finish it in time. After so much investment though, I had to finish it for myself. So, here’s the finished product, with a lovely backdrop! Everything is fondant or gumpaste, except for the wire holding the pendant, and the sugar jewels in the top pendant.
