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.
