Are you sick of hearing about Skellig Michael on my blog yet? Yes? Well, too bad!
My mom made another of her amazing cakes for my birthday. It was a “traditional” Funfetti cake that she decorated to look like Skellig Michael, where the ending scene of The Force Awakens was filmed and which I visited last summer in a very memorable experience.
She used some small Bundt molds to make the mounds for Skellig Michael (on the right with the puffins and steps) and Little Skellig (on the left with the seals).
She knew I was going to blog about this, so she made sure to put only ecologically accurate animals on (though the proportions are still a bit off…)
- sea turtles (5 species seen off Irish coasts)
- grey seals on Little Skellig (there should be gannets here, too haha)
- dolphins and whales (multiple species seen off Irish coasts)
- Atlantic puffins on Skellig Michael
The puffins were hand-made out of marzipan, so they were tasty as well as adorable. The cake itself was delicious, though the icing made our mouths turn blue.
The lettering says “Breithlá Sona” which is apparently an Irish translation of “Happy Birthday” (at least according to Google 😉 ).
