As cakes go, this one is pretty good-looking, yeah? With the molded goombas and mushrooms, it’s hard to argue against this level of detail. The crenellations around the top of that tower aren’t perfect, but I think that adds to their charm.
This Darth Vader cake is simply amazing, no two ways about it. It’s well-designed (just look at those fabric folds!) and perhaps even better executed. But regardless, there is something completely hilarious (to me) about choosing a filling for your Darth Vader.
Halloween-party-throwing foodie gamers – is that a demographic? If so, folks, it’s your day. If you have been dying to suck the sugar-force from a gelatinous Metroid, don’t worry. You’re covered.
Strawberries, green jello, apple… and no strong stomach required.
Imagine the next time you have friends over to dinner, you bring out a delicious chocolate cake on the table, then proceed to hack it apart with a hand saw.
Now you can slice and dice cakes and other tender foods with the Table Saw, a serrated kitchen knife that looks just like a hand saw.
It’s easy to overdo themed weddings. But a few simple thematic touches–say, a little Nintendo here and there–can go a long way toward personalizing that special day. I’m not sure about elaborate headgear, but a tiny Mario on a tag, say, like the one at Scott and Allison Shackelford’s wedding?
Portal crafts will never die, and why should they? We’re all still deeply attached to our Weighted Companion Cubes (sniff)… so attached, in fact, that some of us build furniture in homage to our six-sided pals.
In my everyday, I have a hard time passing up retro computers, video games or cake. So when I saw this Commodore 64 cake, I had to at least give it a mention.
Yeah, yeah. I don’t remember playing PONG on my C64 either, and it’s not as sleek or modern as that MacBook Pro cake, but this retro computer cake actually looks much tastier, IMHO.
This amazingly intricate cake by New York’s BCake is an edible version of an aluminum MacBook Pro, along with a delicious iPhone among other things.
The centerpiece of this geeky cakestravaganza is an aluminum MacBook Pro laptop, complete with a highly detailed keyboard, and LCD (that’s Lickable Candy Deliciousity) display with an on-screen message to its lucky recipient, Victoria – who apparently is a fan of the SuperFriends, too.
Gearfuse spotted this mind-blowingly detailed cake, featuring a budding Zerg base from the money printing military sci-fi RTS Starcraft. Everything you can expect from a Zerg base a minute into the game is there – mineral nodes,a gas geyser, a hatchery, drones, and a couple of larvae, all on top of a crunchy creep-like (we hope) crust.
Neatorama recently posted a bunch of Star Trek cakes, which I assume would be the perfect food for your Star Trek marathons. They’re also unhealthy, but who cares right? All for the sake of awesome. Here’s one of them, a cute and miniature bridge scene on top of an otherwise ordinary base made by reality TV show “Ace of Cakes”:
Here’s another one, a fairly large replica of the Enterprise made by European Cake Gallery.
We’ve all seen a lot of geek culture-inspired cakes; this is the Internet, and food porn is big, after all. But this may just be the ultimate in cake geekery–so ultimate, in fact, that it may just be the best cake ever.
While these lumpy cakes certainly aren’t the most precise video game inspired baked goods I’ve featured here on Technabob, this is definitely the first time I’ve seen so many console cakes congregated in the same place.
Listen up, gaming cakes, you’re gonna have to be careful–there’s a new contender in town: the twake. That’s Twitter cake if you’re not trying to save on characters, and it’s the new birthday sensation. See? Twitter really is taking over the world.
Remember the sugary 8-bit awesomeness of Hello Naomi’s Pac-Man cupcakes? Well, she’s back, and this time she’s built an even mo’ betta version of the edible video game using 80 individual cupcakes to make a retro gamer geek’s dream wedding cake (no slicing required).
Just when you thought it was safe to surf the Internet again without running into custom Portal gear working to lure you back into your addiction to Valve’s hit game, the fandom rush has returned in pony form.
With the cupcake currently dominating the sugary snack scene, it’s no surprise that all the old favorites are gathering in fondant and buttercream. We’ve seen Space Invaders cupcakes, cupcakes that recreate a Pac-Man moment, and now, a set of amazing cupcakes featuring Mario and (some) friends.
