Last Saturday my daughter had a belated birthday gathering with her group of peeps. She is a die hard lover of The Lord of the Rings series, and after putting our heads together, we came up with the idea of a hobbit hole cake.
I know, it looks like a clump of grass with a round thing a ma bob stuck to it's side. The thingy is a hobbit door.
Trust me, I did research.
I baked a cake in a heat proof bowl to create a dome shape.
I inverted it onto a cake stand, and then covered it in green Swiss meringue buttercream that I happily had stashed away in the freezer. Then I made the door out of a round cookie.
Official hobbit doors are round and green and have a gold knob in the very center.
And here is my happy birthday girl.
It almost wasn't a happy birthday party because she was horribly sick the entire week before. Sooooo glad to have her feeling more like her old self!
