What could be better than a life-size TARDIS in your living room? I’ll tell you what. A life-size TARDIS in your living room with a retro arcade system built into it.

I can’t believe that this Pac-Man arcade cabinet is actually a cake. As in bake it in the oven, cover it with frosting, cut it up and eat it – cake. The cake artists over at Seattle’s Jet City Cakes created this amazing desert that looks exactly like the original Pac-Man arcade cabinet.

Classic Controller Pro Coming to a Wii Near You in April
