The Chocolate Garand — Edible M1 Garand Cake

Kentucky Grooms Cake M1 Garand baked chocolate cake

Here’s something you’ve probably never seen before — an edible M1 Garand. You heard that right. The rifle you see in these photos is actually a specialty cake, and every element of the chocolate Garand is deliciously edible, even the authentic receiver and sights. Note the remarkable detail — the grain in the wood, the sling swivels, trigger guard, and buttplate. This is truely a masterpiece of cake-making.

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is edible (and delicious).

My edible rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

Without me, my edible rifle is useless. Without my edible rifle, I am useless. I must eat my rifle true….

This impressive example of cake-making was created by Kentucky Wildflour Cakes. This was created as a “Groom’s cake” for a wedding reception. Below is a photo of the unique chocolate cake in the making. The fellow who commissioned this work of culinary art posted: “I begged you to knock this one out of the park for me, and by gosh you blew it out of the park! This was the main attraction at our reception last night and people are still going on and on about it. I can’t even begin to express how thankful I am for your work!”. For those doubting Thomases who can’t believe this masterpiece was actually created, layer by layer, as a cake, here is a photo of the M1 Garand cake “under construction”:
