Space Invaders Birthday Cake Invades Hong Kong

 |  |  |  |  December 10, 2010

Hong Kong Technabob reader Vivian wrote us to let us know about this fun Space Invaders cake she made for her husband’s 31st birthday.


Atop the cake is the most iconic of the Space Invaders, being blasted away from below. I always wondered why they didn’t have names like the ghosts in Pac-Man. I guess I’ll just call him Invadey. Of course, Invadey is a whole lot bigger than I remember him from the game. It’s like a bunch of invaders got together to form one mega-invader, and then came up with a dumb name for him. Well his enormousness certainly will make him harder to kill. At least he’s just firing regular-size projectiles.

Also, I don’t know what black icing really tastes like (or what it’ll do to your teeth), but I like Space Invaders, and I like cake, so it’s all good in my book.
