The lamp itself is a wooden 7″x7″x7″ cube and features different designs from the Legend of Zelda series. It looks lovely when it’s off, but simply wonderful when switched on!

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!

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.

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!

Zelda Charm Bracelet

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Charm bracelets are still a thing, but you won’t catch this blogger wearing one. Although…I might change my mind if it were something like this awesome work:

This lovely bracelet was created by Pixelosis and is made from Miyuki Delica seed beads and Wildfire bead weaving thread. Beautiful!
