This was just too awesome not to share. At my wedding reception that past weekend I got quite a surprise from my new wife, a trilobite "groom's cake". It was done by Mike's Amazing Cakes and the detail was just amazing. I was always throught trilobites likely wood have tasted something like lobster, but I learned they taste like caramel and chocolate.
It was so beautiful I didn't want to cut into it, but finally gave in.
And yes in case your wondering, I did determine the species. It is supposed to be a Utaspis marjumensis, modeled after this specimen in my collection.
