An Original article for the Home of the Giants Tribute Site

New photos from Home of the Giants surfaced today , sent in by Jennifer Huntley of Thomasville, North Carolina .

Jennifer has been a cake decorator for 9 years, and was commissioned to bake the "Win State" cakes that were used in Home of the Giants. These exclusive pictures, never seen anywhere else on the internet before today, were brought to her by a crew member after filming.

Jennifer said, " These cakes were more fun to make than anything I have done before. I hope you enjoyed them!! "

More about the "Win-State" Cakes


Jennifer shares these interesting anecdotes about the cakes :

" I made two cakes in total, both identical, and both milk chocolate cake with gold buttercream icing. I'm not sure what they weighed, but they were 16 inches in diameter, and 4 inches high, so you know they weren't light. I had bought a new stove that spring, and these were the first large cakes being baked in that oven. I quickly found out that the oven is only 15 inches deep, and ended up having to bungee cord the oven door so it would stay closed. I guess I should have measured first! I'm not sure if the cast got to chow down after filming. It would be a shame if they didn't because together, the cakes fed 154 people. I was told by the "prop guy" to decorate the cakes so they would look "as if they were home-made."
