  1. If you like this cake, please check out my 2018 Roshar cake.
  2. @Tobbzn, Isaac made the glyph for me after a long conversion we had about the glphys several years ago at JordanCon. I actually never tried to break it down. Until recently, I didn't have the knowledge of how. It reminded me of the braid and weaving diagrams I sent him after the convention. So just enjoyed the visual impact of the glyph. So thank you for pointing out that my name is hidden inside it! <3 I'll have to send another round of thanks to Isaac.
  3. Thank you! You can also see the Cosmere Cake I made in 2016:
  4. @Tobbzn, for many of the glyphs you don't translate / worry about including vowels. The glyphs are more "recognized" than read. So there's not much sounding out of the letters. When the full audio is posted, Isaac talks about it.
  5. Thanks @Argent for the tags. :-D As for the how the Happy Birthday glyphs sound - they were made prior to this class. So they are boring old English letters turned into glyphs. I see a smile and a two-tiered cake in the glyphs, but to each his own. Re: the Birthday glyph. The top tier is "day" the bottom tier is the "birth." If I do them again, I would ask my Hebrew speaking relatives for the phrase and translate the sounds. Now that we know the base inspiration for the words, I'll stop trying to see English words inside the glphys. I'm not seeing rule 1. Rule of Cool - Looking cool, trumps readability.
  6. @Sylspear, Why? Just curious. If it is a signing with only Brandon, and you ask him a glyph question - he'll tell you to contact Isaac. So if you have one, I suggest writing to Isaac directly. You can do that via the "Contact Us" button on the website. Isaac is only at few signings, mostly the major release parties, and some cons.

    Map is printed on edible paper. The amazing @Botanica Xu created a version of the map without place names. http://www.17thshard.com/forum/gallery/image/860-map-of-roshar-without-locations/

    And the cake tastes fabulous too! It is three layers of cake. The middle tier is both chocolate and yellow cake, layered on top of each other. To unite the cake, the chocolate layer has a raspberry filling; the top tier, a lemon filling. Buttercream rings help contain the fillings.

    My Roshar inspired cake. Happy Birthday! The white and black glyphs are the Alethi way of saying “Happy" and "Birthday." Well, one way. As fans know, the Alethi alphabet can be tricky.

    The gems are printed on edible paper, placed on fondant octagons. I used the octagons to help represent the planes of cut gemstones, which as fans know, will hold more Stormlight. Glyphs on the gemstones are pulled from art by Awesomeness Summoned on the 17th Shard. http://www.17thshard.com/forum/gallery/image/339-gemstones/ The smokestone image came from the chart created by libdragon on the 17th Shard from Isaac’s base image of the Double Eye. http://www.17thshard.com/forum/gallery/image/426-surges-and-order-guide/

    The “Unite Them” shirt was a special shirt for volunteers and attendees at the Utah release party for book 3 in the Stormlight Archives, “Oathbringer.” I was there as a volunteer in a Veil cos-play and as a beta reader for the book. If you have pictures from the event, I’d love to see them! The glyphs are one version of how you can right "Happy Birthday" in Alethi glyhs. Left is "happy", right is "birthday" done to look similar to a two-tired cake.

    Currently readers believe this is the only land mass on Roshar. So the rest of the cake is decorated to represent an endless ocean.

    The waves of the cake were inspired by a tutorial from Krazy Kool Cakes on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_JfqgCNwA8
