When I was about 15 years old, I played a lot of Counter Strike. I mean A LOT. In school breaks, evenings and weekends, me and my friends would gather up and play with or against each others. Boys and girls. Bad and good players. Pros and newbees. Even when some of us didn’t play, we would still hang in the school’s computer room, either to watch the guys playing or just to hang out..
So when I was asked, if I wanted to make a Counter Strike cake for 9 years old boy, who was having a Counter Strike birthday party, I didn’t hesitated: YEEEEESSS!
I had like 1000 of ideas (No kidding) Some more demanding than others. But “unfortunately” I only had 1 Counter Strike cake in order, so I had to decide.
So here is what I decided:
Hand grenades, barbed wire and cartridge belt. This cake isn’t easy to get near…
Cartridges are made in white fondant, which I have painted with edible metallic food paint; “dark gold”
The hand grenades are green fondant painted with liquid black food color.
I wanted my barb wire to look trashy, so I let the gray fondant dry out a bit, before I molded it, so I could get the look I was going for.
I though the cake was a bit boring, so I decided to mold a character from the video game. My choice felt on this muscle guy with red bandana..
Happy Counter Strike birthday, Emil
