This cake includes two of my favorite things to do; gaming and cake decorating all in one, so this was without a doubt one of the funniest cakes to make.
It was made for my favorite danish gaming show; Pixel.tv as a celebration of their episode #100. Sort of like fan art in shape of a cake…
In the anniversary episode, they broadcasted my cake as a part of the red suit case surprise (it probably sounds like gibberish, if you haven’t seen the show ). Arrrgh! My cake! MY CAKE in the legendary red suitcase! it was weird in a good way (if that’s the right word to use?) seeing my cake broadcasted, and I was overwhelmed, moved and excited all in once by their responds.
Back to the cake. I could have made tons of more gaming character if I had the time. But everything comes to an end, so the characters I decided to go with, was:
Link from Zelda and minion from League of Legends (I had heard that it was some of the hosts’ favorite games. Hope I was right ):
I wanted a big mean gaming character behind the hosts, so I decided to go with an orch from World of Warcraft:
On the cake border are angry birds, a car from GTA “exploding” out of the cake, pac-man on the side, different consoles; Playstation, Wii, Sega, a joystick and et couple of controllers.
I also made a lawn mower from Plants vs. Zombies and I placed randomly black squares to make it look like pixels.
- Aaaaand here they are all together with the two host in the middle:
I wish, I knew more people who want a video game cake. I had SO much fun making it! I would definitely do it again. Hint hint to all of you gamers out there ;)
So thanks a lot, pixel.tv for the opportunity and for the overwhelming responds! And thanks a bunch for a very great show!
