Video Game Birthday Cakes!

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

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? :)

Video Game Cookie Cutters

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

Etsy shop Francesca4me makes and sells cookie cutters. Not just any old ones, though – these cutters are simply awesome. I’ve picked out some of my favourites to share:

Midna from Twilight Princess:

Samus, Metroid and Logo:
metroid cutters

Majora’s Mask, Fierce Deity and Happy Mask Salesman:
mm cutters

Kanto Starter Pokemon:
kanto cutters

They are all made from PLA (Polylactic Acid or Polyactide, which is made from certain types of plants)  using 3D printing. The really great thing about these cutters is the incredible attention to detail. And they have many more wonderful cutters in the shop!

I can’t even imagine how long this must have taken, or how difficult it would have been to build, but it is impressive!

Forum user 015Ekan and his fiancée decided to abandon the traditional gingerbread house in favour of a Mario castle.

Here it is in all its gingerbread glory, complete with stairs! Sadly, they didn’t have enough room for the flagpole. But it looks delicious anyway!

Check out this Pikachu Cafe in Japan…

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

According to Geekologie, there is a restaurant in Japan that is serving Pikachu-themed food. “The cafe will be open for a limited time (until August 31st) outside the Pokemon XY movie exhibit at Tokyo City View in Roppongi Hills.” Here is a sampling of the food you can order:

I don’t know if I could eat Pikachu’s little face, though…
