Last post of the year! I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XIII-2 (wouldn’t that be XIV? -> don’t be ridiculous, a sequel to XIII is obviously called XIII-2!) a lot lately. And by a lot I mean I’ve put at least 40 hours in a short amount of time. So, in the Final Fantasy-themed cupcakes that start with a C department: a Chocobo Cupcake! Since I’ve been taming, riding and racing these majestic beasts for the better part of the game, I thought a Chocobo-themed treat would be appropriate. I will say this though, Cactuar was way easier to make than this little fellow. I tried to go with the look they have in FFVII, but even then there’s a surprising amount of detail in the cute creatures. For your viewing pleasure, a yellow Chocobo on the grassy plains of a chocolate cupcake covered in marzipan:
And as an added bonus, did you know you can also ride a wild Chocobo in FFXIII-2? It’s brightly colored and while you ride it, you get to listen to this metal-style Chocobo song (I think it even has double bass at some point!): OK, I’ll post the lyrics as well… IN CAPS: GAS ‘EM UP WITH THE GREENS AND LET ‘EM GO STAND BACK, STAND CLEAR AS HE PUTS ON THE SHOW SO CUTE YET FIERCE IS HE FROM HELL? I CANNOT TELL YET I DON’T EVEN WANNA KNOW SO YOU WANNA BE A TRAILBLAZER KICK UP DIRT LIKE A HELLRAISER TAKE THE REINS BUT DON’T REACT SLOW IT’S TIME TO FEEL THE FORCE – OF THE CHOCOBO! SO YOU THINK YOU CAN RIDE THIS CHOCOBO? GOT CHOCOBUCKS? YOU BETTER PUT ‘EM ON THE CHOCOBO SADDLE UP IF YOU THINK YOU CAN RIDE IN THIS RODEO ARE WE IN HELL? I DUNNO! KICK THE DIRT LET’S ROLL COME IF YOU THINK YOU GONNA HIDE THIS CHOCOBO EVERYBODY’S GONNA WANT TO RIDE YOUR CHOCOBO IT’S CHOCO-LOCO STYLE IN THE CHOCORODEO GONNA RIIIDE’M STRAIGHT THROUGH HELL IN THE CHOCOBO RODEO!!
On a side-note, hottest character in the game award goes to Chocabocalina!
