Caketanic – not just another chocolate-ship cookie

I noticed this vast chocolate Titanic in a bakery window in the city of Lugo in northern Spain last summer. As the shop was closed at the time, I never got to ask who made it; why; how much it cost; or, above all, whether a luscious sponge cake, layered to correspond with each of the Titanic‘s many decks, lay concealed beneath its chocolate exterior.

It came to mind today because of a picture I didn’t have room to use in yesterday’s Raising The Titanic post, which unless I’m very much mistaken shows another truly Titanic cake.
