as finished as it's gonna' get!

last photo of this cake until it arrives at the edible book festival tomorrow. i PROMISE! (and sorry it's blurry, but my camera is dying.--it's not focusing properly.)

 

so, ok, to reiterate, intellivision cake is lemon with a lemon buttercream icing. the knobs and the fake woodgrain are gingerbread. the cord connecting the controller is licorice.

 

the lucky wander boy book is made of yellow cake with a lemon buttercream icing. the cover was made with food dye that i applied with a brush.

 

and now i'm finished. maybe i'll post the other cake's photo when it's done, maybe not.

  • chotda 9y

    cooooool. you're so awesome, rakka. i'd've eaten the controller by now.
  • Alix Meek 9y

    I wonder how many other photos have the tag 'revision of original cake'?
  • Lisa Bunchofpants 9y

    Oops! Were we not supposed to start eating the controller already? Damn! Sorry Rakka, I'll try to fix it by tomorrow morning!!
  • Vaguely Artistic 9y

    My favvorite part is the little cut-out where the controller goes. will you find out if (when) you've won tomorrow?
  • Rakka 9y

    va--it's not a contest. it's just a group of edible books that people pay to see. all proceeds go to 826 seattle.

    promise to answer the rest of the comments tomorrow!

    almost looks like it's made of felt! amazing!
  • Rakka 9y

    there's no way i could eat cake now, chotda. i'm sick of looking at it. ;D

    thanks, grinch.

    i think it's just me, ld. i don't think anyone else edits their pastry! ;D

    if i could, i'd mail you the controller, pants. but it would be really gross by the time it got there. :(

    i really like that part too, va! the controller and the power cords on the cover of lucky wander boy!

    thanks, am!! i'd rather eat felt than cake at this point! haha!

  • amir 9y

    How about an ADAM computer to go with it.
  • Rakka 9y

    now that's a great idea, particle-wave!

    i'll see what i can do! (but may is probably going to be a busy pastry month so it might be a while.)
