I used to think this Atari 2600 cake was my favorite video game cake, but I got bored with the blocky graphics and repetitive games. Just like the real console, this Intellivision cake has much more realistic graphics.
Even before her husband, Ricky Gonzalez, proposed to her, Donna Marie San Severo already had an idea for her wedding cake – the scene from Ghostbusters where the four heroes blast away at Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
We like our geeky cakes around here and the gang at Gizmodo has some pics of a birthday cake that a geek was served that looked just like an iPhone 4. The birthday boy was Carlos, and the cake looked yummy enough on its own.
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.
This Alien wedding cake made the rounds on the internet about a year ago, but somehow I missed out on it. But like many things on the ‘net, everything old is new again, so I figured I’d give it a whirl and see how many people pick this thing up and send it to their friends again anyhow.
You’ve probably seen a handful of console cakes by now, even Xbox 360 cakes. But what about a specific type of Xbox 360 cake? One lucky husband got this extra special cake for his birthday a couple of months ago:
The perfect combo to the Halo: Reach box cake.
Nintendo just revealed this awesome Super Mario Bros. cake during the game’s 25th anniversary celebration in New York. I can say that this is the perfect way to celebrate all those years of playing Mario games in their different incarnations over the years.
My 6-year-old daughter plays more games on my iPhone and iPad than I do. If my iPad is missing, I can generally find her laid out in the floor somewhere playing Angry Birds. She calls it “the slingshot game” more often than not.
I just spotted this Ms. Pac-Man cake over on flickr contributor melonqueen‘s photostream, and just had to feature it.
While I’m not sure that the Atari 2600 ever had graphics this good, I still like the idea of the edible 2600 joystick on the side.
This ridiculous looking Q*bert cake comes to us courtesy of Karen from Highland Bakery.
It’s a pretty accurate likeness of the original orange freak from arcade days gone by. For some reason, I wanted to call it a Q*bert Qake, but I’ll resist.
This crazy looking 200-pound cake looks like an octopus. While I rarely eat any cakes, this gigantic one made me smile, and mutter a prayer to the almighty Cthulhu!

Upcoming game Halo: Reach has a $150 (USD) limited bundle, dubbed the Legendary Edition. It has lots of doodads in it, including a diorama of the Noble Team. And it comes in a UNSC-themed box:
Photobucket member cdcredninja showed off an equally legendary cake version of the UNSC box.
Pastry Jedi/awesome baker/awesomer mom Lisa Smiley made this huge Death Star-topped birthday cake for her son’s 9th birthday. I guess we should expect nothing less than magical things from a person whose last name is Smiley.
