‘Portal’ Companion Cube Cookies- Obscure but Tasty

by Karen M.

I recently spotted these ‘weighted companion cube’ cookies from the somewhat obscure (or maybe that’s just me?) video game Portal.

I’ll freely admit I’ve never even heard Portal until about 15 minutes ago when I saw a picture of this cookie, but I did some reconnaissance and learned that in the game you get a weighted companion cube as some kind of reward. The creator of this masterpiece Jennyvier helpfully shared a picture of a real weighted companion cube alongside her copy to show her pastry prowess. (Quick question: how does she have a “real” one of these if it’s from within a video game? But I digress.)

There’s something about the art genre of representational dough and frosting video games that really drives me wild. But here’s the kicker. This cookie is made from the dough left over from making Battlestar Galactica Cylon cookies. And I thought I was a geeky girl! Clearly I’ve got a long ways to go.

    Actually, Portal is a very popular, fairly recent game. It was made by Valve and was part of the Orange Box edition of Half-Life 2. Those cookies look amazing! They are a triumph!

    And I played the crap out of Portal. Of course, the cake was a lie.
