Damn. These Pac-Man cupcakes sure look tasty. Too bad I just ate dinner, and too bad that they’re only a picture of cupcakes instead of ones that I can actually pop in my mouth and chow down on. I wonder if the cherries really taste like cherries? I spotted these delicious looking Pac-Man cakes created by baker hello naomi today, perfectly iced, and arranged to look just like the game screen.
