I made this Homemade Xbox 360 Birthday Cake for my little brother's 18th birthday. I baked three layers of pound cake in 9x13 pans. I mixed vanilla frosting, strawberries, and cool whip for the filling in between the layers then cut it into the shape of an xbox. I covered the cut cake in a very thin layer of butter cream, and covered it in white fondant then smoothed it out.

I colored some fondant with a little bit of black and cut out all of the pieces; I colored the long silver part with silver luster dust. Then put them all on with a little paint brush and water. I used vanilla frosting to write XBOX 360 on top and added the Happy 18th Birthday on the side because I wanted the cake to look real.

All together this cake took me a few hours to make and was very fun, it got a great reaction!

Coolest Xbox 360 Birthday Cake 37

Homemade Xbox 360 Birthday Cake

This Xbox 360 Birthday Cake was made for my son's 16th birthday. He loves to play his video games. I figured it was a cool way of kicking off his gaming party the weekend after his birthday. He invited about 10 of his friends and they had a blast.

The System itself is two regular 9 by 13 cakes, chocolate on bottom and vanilla on top crumb coated with buttercream and then white marshmallow fondant. All the other decorations are the same fondant which I added the colors and then let them set over night so the colors would enhance.

Bake the cakes as directed on the box. Let cool completely. I froze mine for about 4 hours and then added the fondant, or you can simply make sure you have a sterdy buttercream, that is very important when using any kind of fondant.

Thanks and hope you enjoy, it took about 10 hours to make this cake.

Coolest Xbox Cake 18

Homemade Xbox Cake

Homemade Xbox Cake

I baked 2 square chocolate cakes and cut one in half. Joined one and half together and cut the other one into triangles and assembled them into the controller shape.

Then frosted them with chocolate buttercream to help it all stick together and covered them both in icing.

The Xbox cake itself was easy, I just carved the shapes (I even carved Xbox 360 into the disc tray), painted the disc tray silver and painted the edges of power button green.

For the controller I just molded the analog sticks by hand and carved the start and select buttons and painted the edges the make them stand out more. For the Xbox Guide button I made a small semisphere from icing and painted it silver then cut an x and painted green into the crack. The ABXY buttons are smarties.

I'm proud to say, my boyfriend was extremely happy about his birthday cake this year.

Nothing at all actually, I guess they're just super shiny smarties.

Question about x-box cake
by: Anonymous

I am making this cake(which is wonderful) for my son's party tonight, and I wondered how you made the main controller x-box button shiny. It is the middle button on the controller?

I used silver sugar paint for the big silver button.

How did you make the analog sticks and what icing did you use?

What type of icing
by: Anonymous

Love the cake. My brother asked me to make a special cake for him and since he's always on his xbox why not an xbox cake.

I was wondering what type of icing you used on the different parts of the cake?

Coolest Wii Birthday Cake Design 32

Homemade Wii Birthday Cake Design

Homemade Wii Birthday Cake Design

I make my kids' cakes around what they love! My son adores his Wii, so I decided to make a Wii Birthday Cake Design! This was also my first time making my own fondant with marshmallow and powdered sugar.

I used a square pan for the actual Wii and the remotes, I just used the actual remotes to size them and cut to shape. With the fondant I covered the cake and remotes and cut tiny parts for the buttons, and rolled fondant for the cord. I used gelled frosting for the writings/drawings, and a blank rewritable CD for the game.

The cake was vanilla. It was a hit, and very yummy.

Coolest X Box Cake 14

Homemade XBox Cake

What can I say, it's an Xbox cake! We make a variety of cakes for the school and this is one of the them. The cake walk is a big deal in our family and a lot of thought goes into which cakes to do. We love it!

We use fondant for any of the shaped cakes and mini M&M's serve well for the buttons. The carving on the controller is actually really simple and the game box itself is very basic.

I've had requests for this cake a few times and they always seem to really appreciate it!
