While Game of Thrones might be over, we are now being treated to the new House of the Dragon series while we wait to see if George R.R. Martin ever finishes his books and gives us a more satisfying ending.
In the meantime, who doesn’t know someone who would be overjoyed to receive a Game of Thrones-themed cake?
Looking for ideas and inspiration to get you started? Below you will find 50 of the best GOT cake ideas to inspire you.
1. Regal Throne Layered Cake
The iron throne is definitely the symbol of Game of Thrones and Westeros. This two-layered GOT cake is finished with an iron throne topper.
The second layer is decorated with an edible wolf to represent House Stark, while a dragon sits beside the cake for the Targaryens.
This one reads “30 is coming”, a play on words you’ll find on many Game of Thrones cakes.
2. Simple Iron Throne Cake
Cakes don’t have to be complex to be impressive. This is a very simple round cake decorated with a distinctive iron throne topper.
The details of the armoring around the bottom of the cake and the lettering with the authentic GOT font make it something special.
3. Layered Dragon and Egg Cake
What would the world of Game of Thrones be without dragons? This cake is topped with an edible dragon egg and a delicious dragon perched on top of it letting out a roar.
The bottom two layers are also on theme. The lowest shows the defenses of King’s Landing, and the second is a simple black layer with a Stark wolf decoration.
4. Layered Black Dragon Cake
The most fearsome of Daenerys’ dragons is her black dragon Drogon, and he perches on the side of this impressive cake.
The bottom layer features regal decorations and the iron throne. The next layer is for leaving a sweet message, and the top layer is iced with golden dragon scales.
5. Dragon and Throne GOT Cake
This cake has just one layer to accommodate the correct number of guests, but it is still cool in its GOT theme.
Both the iron throne and dragon toppers are edible and will impress and delight guests as you cut into this sweet treat.
6. House Banners Cake
There are many houses in Westeros, each with its own traditions and symbols. There is House Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen, Lannister, and more.
This iron throne topper cake also features the major houses with pinned banners on top and edible coat of arms chiels around the side of the cake. Choose to munch on your favorite family.
7. Throne and Dragon Head GOT Cake
This cake combines two of the most important symbols from Game of Thrones in spectacular style, with a detailed iron throne and a large dragon head sitting on top of the cake.
But another element that stands out about this cake is the two soldiers standing in front of the fortified walls of the cake. One is an unsullied soldier, and the other is one of the King’s Guard in his shining helm.
8. Jon Snow and the Iron Throne Cake
This cake achieves a Game of Thrones theme with simple edible toppers and a small birthday plaque that evokes the classic “Winter is Coming” theme.
The toppers are an edible Iron Throne and Jon Snow. But, importantly, Jon does not sit on the throne since he never claimed it for himself.
9. Dark Jon Snow Cake
Jon Snow is one of the most popular characters from GOT, so he is an excellent choice to feature as a cake topper.
This realistic edible cake topper stands beside a detailed Iron Throne. He does not sit on the throne as he was never king of Westeros.
The cake is decorated in black, fitting for the leader of the Night’s Watch.
10. Enthroned Jon Snow Cake
This cake shows the ending that many fans would have liked to have seen for the Game of Thrones tv series, but sadly never happened. Make it real for your favorite fan.
An edible Jon Snow sitting on the Iron Throne topper sits on top of this cake, and his direwolf Ghost sits by the cake.
11. Daenerys and Iron Throne Cake
While Daenerys may have claimed the Iron Throne as her birthright, she sat on the seat for a very short time. This cake uses a Daenerys on iron throne edible topper.
The cake is iced in black, reflecting the dark scenes of the closing season, and an edible dragon sits at Daenerys’ feet.
12. Daenerys Game of Thrones Cake
While Daenerys may have received an unfair ending in the TV series, she is still one of the most popular characters.
This cake celebrates her with a large Daenerys edible topper on a small dragon scale icing cake.
She sits on the Iron Throne in one of her signature dresses and holds her three dragon eggs in her lap.
13. Khal Drogo Portrait Cake
While Dothraki like Khal Drigo would probably prefer a steak to a cake, a fan will still love this Khal Drogo 3D portrait cake.
The baker has taken a lot of care to create a detailed portrait, which is placed on top of a simple white cake. But the small message “the moon of my life” will have a special meaning.
14. House of Faces Cake
This unique Game of Thrones cake features the Hall of Faces that Arya finds in the House of Black and White while she is learning the ways of the assassins.
The cake is topped by an edible iron throne, and the lower layer represents the green of Westeros with the symbols of some of the Houses.
15. Multi-Layered Game of Thrones Cake
A multi-layered cake gives you space to incorporate all of your favorite themes rather than just picking one.
This one starts with the plate itself, which has some of the moving clockwork parts that feature in the opening credits.
The first two layers feature a dragon on one side and a weeping weirwood tree on the other, while the icing shows bricks and wood.
Above this is a dragon scale layer, topped by an edible iron throne.
16. Iron Throne and Dragon Egg Cake
This cake was made for a baby shower, with the unhatched dragon egg signifying the baby. The egg sits on an iron throne on top of the cake, and both are edible.
The cake itself is decorated in earthy colors with strikes of silver to suggest the potential power of the soon-to-arrive dragon.
17. Dragon Devouring Throne Cake
This cake combines two of the most common Game of Thrones symbols but in a unique way. The Iron Throne that sits on top of the cake looks like it is being devoured by the dragon, which curls around the throne and the cake.

The lower layers are decorated with the coat of arms banners of the other houses. There is the Stark wolf, the Targaryen dragons, the Lannister lion, and the Baratheon stag.
21. Scales and Swords Game of Thrones Cake
This cake feels more symbolic than specific than other GOT cakes, but stands out for its detail and color scheme.
The bottom layer features green dragon scales, while the top layer features silver swords that evoke the iron throne but does not represent it. The colors look eery together and create a cool minimalist cake.
22. House Stark Cake

29. Pastel Dragon Cake
Do you know a Game of Thrones fan that also loves their pinks and pastels? Who said that the two couldn’t mix?

Many people who do Game of Thrones cakes will take advantage of dragon-scale icing. This cake starts with that but adds details to take things to another level.

The detailed painting of the face and the way the armor is created with icing will have people talking about this cake for years to come.
35. Throne and Golden Dragon Cake

The silver of the throne and the gold of the dragon shine and are reflected in the silver and gold accents on the black icing of the cake.
36. Wolf and Dragon Cake
By the end of the Game of Thrones series, the wolf and the dragon sit on either side of the iron throne, just like they do on top of this cake! There is also a small Baratheon crown, adding a nice detail.

37. Your House GOT Cake
House loyalty is important in Game of Thrones; this person has made a cake with the name of the birthday boy or girl’s house.
The cake has two layers, starting with buttercream dragon scales topped by defensive bricks.
An iron throne sits on top of the cake and can be reached by a ladder or the vines trailing down the side of the cake.
38. Weirwood Cake
Weirwoods are central to the religion of the Old Gods, followed by people like Ned Stark. The life-like faces of the trees also make great cake decorations.
This cake is iced to look like the bricks of Winterfell, and a weirwood tree appears on the side with blood-red blooms flowing out.
A silver house Stark medallion sits on the side of the cake, and the Stark sword Oathkeeper protrudes from the top.
39. Crying Weirwood Cake
The crying of the trees in the weirwood is an important symbol in Game of Thrones and sits at the center of this impressive layered cake.
The lowest layer looks like the ice of the land “beyond the wall”, while the second layer is armored and decorated with the wolf of House Stark.
The weeping weirwood sits on top of this, and an iron throne layer finishes off the cake.
40. White Weirwood Cake
This cake might make the perfect treat for a GOT fan who loves the idea of the Old Gods and ancient religions.
The simple white cake forms the base for a weirwood tree, with long roots and branches opening up with red leaves; the weeping face of the tree looks both sweet and eerie.
41. Longclaw Cake
When Jon Snow becomes the Captain of the Night’s Watch, he receives Longclaw, a sword of Valyrian Steel that can kill Whitewalkers.
This is the sword with the wolf handle that sticks out of the top of this cake.
The cake itself is iced to look like the fur of a wolf, and the wolf symbol of House Stark appears on the side of the cake.
42. Winter is Coming Cake
From the very beginning of GOT, we are told that “Winter is Coming,” and it is one of the most important lines uttered in the series on various occasions.
This black cake featured the ominous saying, alongside the iced head of a wolf, representing the North.
43. House Targaryen Symbol Cake
The Game of Thrones spin-off series House of the Dragon focuses on the history of House Targaryen, which is represented by a three-headed dragon symbol.
This cake puts the blood-red symbol on top of a black iced cake, which is enclosed by a wall of armor, including the swords used to make the Iron Throne.
44. Stark and Targaryen Houses Cake
Near the end of Game of Thrones, the Starks under Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen unite to take on the Whitewalkers in the North and the Lannisters in the South.
This cake overlays the symbols of the two houses, with the Stark wolf over the Targaryen dragon.
This symbol could represent Jon Snow, whose mother was a Stark and whose father was from the House of the Dragon.
45. House Baratheon Cake
By the time we meet King Robert Baratheon, his kingship has shaped him, and his successor Joffrey Baratheon is even worse!
But the Baratheons were respected enough to hold the Iron Throne after the fall of the Mad King.
This cake is topped by the stag crown of the Baratheon kings. Dragon scales pour down the side of the cake, an ominous sign of things to come.
46. Sleeping Dragon Cake
During the time between the fall of the Mad King and the return of Daenerys Targaryen, it seems that the dragon is only sleeping, as is the edible dragon that sits at the side of this Iron Throne topper.
The side of the cake is decorated with the coats of arms of the various houses, including the stag horns of House Baratheon, the raven symbol of Aryan of the Eyrie, and the golden Kraken of the House of Greyjoy.
47. Chocolate Game of Thrones Cake
The chocolate icing of this layered cake makes it look like elaborate woodwork, engraved with intricate patterns and little gargoyle heads around the top.
The most striking features of the cake are the two dragons standing like sentinels on either side of the top layer and the Iron Throne on top.
48. You Sit On The Iron Throne
In Game of Thrones, everyone wants to sit on the Iron Throne. Why not put the birthday boy or girl in the coveted seat in edible form?
This lucky girl has her loyal dog at her side, just like the Stark children with the dire wolf pups.
49. Game of Thrones Book Cake
Do you know someone desperately waiting for the next installment of the books to land? Give them a bookish birthday surprise with the GOT cake book.
The edible dragon on top will help ease their disappointment that it is not a real advanced issue of the next George R.R. Martin book.
50. GOT Wedding Cake
Want to do a Game of Thrones wedding cake? Take the same approach as any GOT cake, but rather than topping with Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen figures (remember they were related, and he killed her), go for two crowns.
The Baratheon stag crown encircles the top layer of this cake, while a more delicate crown for his queen sits on the very top of the cake.
