It’s stitched on 14ct oatmeal aida, and as Stitchmond says, “It’s pretty straightforward.”

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!

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!

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? :)

They have so many more shadowboxes in their store, too - from videogames to anime, Doctor Who to My Little Pony. Each shadowbox is made with card stock, placed in layers that makes them pop from the background. Check out the shop and their dA account for more!

Giant FF Tower of Kefka Pixel Hobby

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014


Wacker00, on deviantART, constructed this enormous Pixel Hobby project of the Tower of Kefka from FFVI (or FFIII, depending on where you’re from.) He says, “ This is constructed from 144k pixel hobby plastic beads. The beads are placed onto pegboards that hold 2k beads each. I lost track of the time it took to complete this but it was well over 300+ hours.”

Here are a couple close ups:
