Coolest XBOX Cake 11

I made this XBox cake for my, at the time, boyfriend. He really liked playing video games, and he's favorite console was the XBOX 360 so I decided to bake this cake.

First, I baked 3 rectangular cakes.Then I overlaped 2 of them (which would later be the console), I added the frosting (which is regular white vanilla frosting with some colorant).

After that i took a new clean brush and used some frosting as "paint" and drew the two game controls on the third rectangular cake. I then used a sharp knife, and carefully cut them out. After that it was just frosting.

It's really easy, you just have to visualize the console and the controllers, to kinda have the right proportion between them. And with the frosting colors I just began to experiment to get the right tones. I had my computer on the side to compare the colors. I would recommend you to do so, or have a picture or the real thing beside you, so you can get a more realistic picture.

Coolest Bachelor Party XBox Cake 46

Homemade Bachelor Party XBox Cake

Homemade Bachelor Party XBox Cake

A friend of mine who had asked me to make her wedding cake, also asked if I could make her husband a bachelor party cake. It was the biggest challenge yet, a Bachelor Party XBox Cake! But I was definitely up for it.

The cake was a vanilla Oreo cake with vanilla butter cream. It was a bit difficult getting the right shape, but I carved a slight curved angle on the front, covered it with icing and then covered it with white fondant. The "holes" on the top of the xbox were small silver candy balls. The details were cut out of fondant by looking at an xbox and trying to make it look as realistic as possible.

The remote was cake mixed with icing like a "cake pop" so that it would keep a good shape. All the other details were made out of colored fondant or gumpaste and then stuck on using royal icing.

My son wanted a Homemade Playstation Birthday Cake for his 11th birthday. This was the first time I used fondant (usually used buttercream on my cakes) and boy had I wished I used gloves, the black dye made a huge mess!

Its a yellow cake with chocolate icing, covered in black dyed font, all is edible with the exception of the game. We had fun and he was very happy with the cake!

My nephew had a friend's "Wii Birthday Bash" party for his 10th Birthday. I made this Wii Cake using 9x13 pan and fondant. I also added the blank CD for finishing touches and just used our Wii as a guideline to decorate.

My son was a having a gaming theme birthday party I made his invitations look like the DSI with his face on the top screen and the party information on the bottom screen. I wanted the cake to keep with the theme and I went to a popular bakery in Chicago that came highly recommended. The cake was not what I expected at all. I asked them to make a cake shape like a game controller. To me the cake looked like a regular sheet cake with controller elements on top. Later one of my friends informed me that the controller that that was being replicated is the original Nintendo controller. The Nintendo that I grew up on and my son knows nothing about. Your cake looks soo nice I wished I would have make the cake myself as well, then it would have been exactly what I wanted. Again good job the cake look nice.

I carved a double layer sheet cake for the console of the Wii cake. The remote is a carved loaf pan size cake.

All covered in marshmallow fondant. This was my first attempt at fondant outside my Wilton class.

My son had a Wii party and he wanted the cake to go with. Here's a Wii remote made with marshmallow fondant and gum paste buttons. Everything is to scale because I enlarged a photo of a real remote.
