Playable Operation Cake: Surgical Sweets

 |  |  |  |  August 8, 2017


Operation was one of my favorite board games growing up – because it really wasn’t a board game at all, but an opportunity to play around with electricity and pretend to be a surgeon. So what could be better than combining this fun game than an edible version made from cake?

That’s exactly what Ann Reardon from How to Cook That did, creating a this tasty Operation cake that really works. Underneath the colorful frosting, there’s a sponge cake with vanilla buttercream, simple syrup, and strawberry jam.

The game is playable, thanks to a network of “wires” inside, which are actually made from Twizzlers. Connected to a Makey Makey circuit, spots on the cake can detect when you touch the the insides of the surgical areas, and makes sounds when you remove the patient’s various body parts. It doesn’t work exactly like the original game in that it makes sounds even if you don’t mess up, but it’s still a cool build.  You can see how the wiring works at the 9:15 mark in the video clip below:

If you want to make your own Operation cake, drop by the How to Cook That website for the full recipe and details on the build.
