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 mixture of marzipan and fondant. So here it is, in all its sparkly glory! Congrats to the winning team Hexacon!
I think I could have done a better job on this cake. I had the flu all week and under the pressure of having only 5 hours free to make this cake, I had to compromise a lot. I wanted to make a 3D Link holding the Master Sword, or with an opened chest and a victory cup in his hands, but after two people told me that the marzipan head I had finished looked nothing like Link, I decided to skip the whole 3D Link bit. Better luck next time. Sparkly Triforce it is!
