Last night, for my birthday, my friend Michele (a.k.a. Choctopus) baked me a cake in the shape of a Reuben sandwich. Michele's cakes are beyond amazing, and this one was a real winner.
Description of the cake. The "bread" was made from a marbled cake, to give it a "marble rye" appearance. The sauerkraut was a coconut based frosting, and the meat was made from fondant - it's hard to see in this photo, but it had a really great "meat texture" to it. The cheese layer was also made from fondant. There was a chocolate later under the meat to give the cake substance and shape.
It was awesome!
