Project Eternity Chocolate Cake

By | 07:49 PM

Obsidian Entertainment has started a kickstarter last month to crowdfund Project Eternity: an isometric, party-based computer RPG set in a new fantasy world. I immediately backed them as soon as I found out about this. Why am I so excited about all this? Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment and basically all Infinity Engine games are my […]

Planescape: Torment | Rune of Torment cake

By | 05:53 PM

Of all the games I’ve played, the most well-written one (800.000 words anyone?) has got to be Planescape: Torment. Released in 1999, this RPG used the Infinity engine (of Baldur’s Gate fame) and takes place in the Planescape (AD&D) setting. I love everything about it really, it’s hard to describe just how awesome this game […]

Pacman Lemon Bars

By | 07:53 AM

So I got these measuring spoons in the mail this week: cup, tbsp, tsp, stuff like that. This means I can finally try baking some American recipes! Try? Yes, try! Apparently, it is not a really good idea to bake lemon bars (recipe here) in a leaky pan over an oven grid…. I was very […]

Zelda Triforce Cake

By | 06:57 PM

Finally! Time for a gamecake! I baked this one as a prize for the Game of the Year-award of the MKT 4 game development project I assisted. Also, since it’s Link’s 25th birthday, a Zelda-themed cake seemed appropriate. It’s filled with two layers of strawberry bavarois with fresh strawberries and covered in buttercream and a […]

After an overwhelming response (on facebook, not my blog unfortunately), Super Meat Boy got the most votes. So as requested by my readers, today I present you with this Super Meat Boy Brownie: Did you know this […]

Seinfeld Cake

By | 06:56 AM

Ok, you got me. There is no Seinfeld videogame (that I’m aware of, prove me wrong in the comments section). But, I’ve found a loophole! It turns out there are plenty of Seinfeld boardgames, so this cake is still gamecakes material. I made this for the season 5 Seinfeld marathon, so the things you see […]

Mario Cake

By | 10:24 PM

A Facebook friend (yarly) asked me to bake a Mario-themed cake for her son’s birthday. She requested that there should be at least one Goomba on it. Since that wouldn’t have looked very festive, I decided to make a little more than that from fondant and marzipan: And then the cake! This was my first […]

Pacman Cake

By | 09:47 PM

I recently assisted a project on my university called Mazerunner. In a couple of weeks, the students were expected to create a 3D game based on a 3D Pacman game. When the teaching staff asked me to bake a cake for the winners, there was little doubt in my mind that this should be a […]
