When picking the theme for a video game cake, you can choose from so many “big time” franchises. I am not sure who requested a this Bubble Bobble cake from melonqueen (Nicole Horvath), but they are a person of outstanding taste and class. Requesting it is only half the battle though, because as you will see melonqueen has some major cake making talent. I want this cake.
Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch’s small cake heart grew three sizes that day and it was delicious.
Cake Designer Erin Salerno has posted some pretty wonderful creations on her Flickr page, but her rendition of the most sincere pumpkin patch from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown really takes the…cake.
If you are at a Flea Market or Garage Sale, make sure you keep your eyes open for those retro cake pans. This week I spotted this gem of a cake that was posted by booturtle on Flickr. According to booturtle, the cake was “made from the 1980s Wilton Rainbow Brite cake pan.” The results are retro impressive, especially after some artistic decorating.
I like how Animal really doesn’t look like he belongs on the top of this silver bead decorated cake. But of course, Animal goes where Animal wants to go.
When I was looking for a G.I. Joe cake, I thought I would find lots of toys that were covered in action figures, maybe even a vehicle. I did not expect to fall in love with this smooth modern cake with the Joe logo. Another one of those cakes that looks just to pretty to eat.
I do love the idea of an Oregon Trail cake, but sweet treats + the word dysentery do not go well together.
