Winning the cake game


Carol shared this photo of her stacked-console wedding cake on GameDaily and discussed her choice to go with a confectionery design that reflected her passions. In case you hadn’t already guessed, Carol’s passion is console gaming.

I really wanted a four layer made with my precious game consoles. However, no cake maker would touch it. As luck would have it, I ran across this fabulous, much more unconventional cake making site where the baker was down to try whatever. This masterpiece was our composite brain child and the most emotionally painful thing I’ve ever had to destroy to eat.

Smart lady. I myself am a huge fan of Fancy Cakes by Leslie, and mentioned them earlier in the year while talking about the merits of choosing many mini cakes over a full sized one. While I have highlighted video gaming cakes in the past, most of them were single tier groom’s cakes. I hereby declare that Carol has gotten the power up and won the cake game — I mean, come on, she even had little icing controllers, and if you follow the link, you can see how insanely detailed the back of the cake was!

    re: those unbelievably splashy mini cakes! i’m guessing they cost more than cupcakes. but you know, if the $$$ allocated for the wedding cake (save a small, cut-the-cake cake for show), centerpieces AND favors were to be combined…mini cakes could be a budget friendly and unique addition to a wedding. do you know how much those mini cakes cost? i was on the site but of course vendors don’t like to list prices…

    I’m pretty sure you can assume that they are always going to cost more than cupcakes, tto. No ideas on the specifics, though. Cake was important to me…more important than centerpieces or flashy table settings or a seating chart, so I went all out on mine. Yum…I wish I still had some.

    Eh–I live near Cakes by Leslie, and went by to see if I wanted to order one of her cakes for my wedding this fall. Her cakes are, no contest, the most beautiful and intricate ones I’ve seen, but….they didn’t taste great. For me, it’s more important to have a pretty and delicious cake than to have a gorgeous but blah-tasting cake.

    I’m with you there, JS! My cake rocked…it wasn’t ALL THAT. We were going to go with a ‘book’ design kind of like the cake above, but then went for something simpler. I was more interested in the flavors than anything else!

  9. Is it perhaps when you try to insert a link? I tried to show you my cake and it wouldn’t let me *sniffle*

    Oh, poo…now I want to see your cake, Dataceptionist! Also, as an aside, you can buy Pop Tarts by the case at, but I’m not sure if they ship all the way to your neck of the globe.

    Whenever I get married, my mom has offered to make my cake. I am thus assured that it will taste delicious and look gorgeous- for next to nothing.
