There are a lot of video game themed cakes out there, and I really mean a LOT. Today I thought we’d look at a few cool birthday cakes for kids and adults alike!
Super Mario Galaxy cake by omgitsalisa
Lots of stars, coins and a mid-flip Mario. This cake took over 40 hours to decorate!
Majora’s Mask cake by The Cake Nook
This cool cake was made by a friend of mine, Zoe of The Cake Nook. She made this for her nephew’s birthday, he’s a big Zelda fan!
Sonic cake by Unknown
The rings are my favourite part! And Classic Sonic, of course. I wasn’t able to find out who created this, so if any of you readers know who it was please do let us know!
Okami cake by Gina’s Cakes
This cake is just beautiful! Gina, the creator, made this cake for her daughter’s birthday.
Charizard cake by Gina’s Cakes
Another one from Gina (and also for her daughter’s birthday – what a lucky kid!), this one is just awesome. Even the stones are edible, and if you look closely you’ll see candles in the tail flame!
Well, dear readers, it’ll be my birthday in a couple of months…guess what kind of cake I would like?

Suedre made a very cool quilted bag featuring a ShyGuy on one side and Luigi on the other.
I’m not a quilter, but I can really appreciate all the work that goes into these pixel quilt pieces. (I own a fabulous Black Mage quilt by Quiltoni so I’ve seen close-up what these things are made of.)
I know some of you are quilters, or maybe you know a quilter, and would like to know how something like Suedre’s bag is made. Well, there’s good news – she wrote a tutorial detailing exactly how it’s done!
Please also check out her website, The Bored Zombie, for more crafty greatness!

Crocheting is an easy(ish) skill to pick up – even I can do it. There are some people who truly master crochet and Kjetil Nordin is one such person. He created this amazing SMB3 blanket.
According to his friend (who posted the pictures online), it took Nordin 6.5 years, or 800 hours, to crochet this whole thing. This includes the time spent hunting for perfect yarn colours, and even starting over when one of the colours wasn’t to Nordin’s liking.
I wonder what his next project will be?

Yes, it is indeed nearing the end of May, but I’ve been away awhile and I wanted to share the results of the March challenge with you. The theme was “Crossovers” and the parameters were left wide open.
In first place was stitchingmama with Lego Movie Meets Portal 2:
Coming in a close second was AgitatedMojo with Shovel Knight and Diglett:
In third place was icedragonj, with Journeyer and Latias:
Incidentally, icedragonj also received the illustrious BMH-stamp-of-approval for the interesting character combo.
Awesome as usual, everyone! The event for April and May has been a sampler stitch-a-long. I can’t wait to see, and post, the finished projects!
Keep stitching, everyone. It’s good to be back.
