I Went To Chuck E Cheese: Parents Build Animated Zelda 'Skyward Sword' Cake For Daughter's 10th Birthday

March 11, 2013


This is the animated Skyward Sword themed cake Kotaku reader Will Turnbow and his wife made for their daughter's (no word what her name is, so we'll just call her Lucky) 10th birthday party. It has a bunch of animated characters that move around and make me all jealous of a child (which seems to be a growing trend).

Based on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the cake includes Skyloft, the Sealed Grounds, the Faron Woods, and a ton of characters and other intricate details from the game.

"The Temple entrance is 6 batches of Rice Krispies and the backside of the temple is 9 cakes stacked as high as we could make it," Turnbow writes on his YouTube video's description. "The small tower on either side are styrofoam wrapped with fondant. My wife made and painted all of the characters out of clay except for Link (I was able to use my Figma Link)."

Mmmm, count me in for one of those fondant-wrapped styrofoam towers. I don't like fondant though so I'll just peel that off and eat the tower. What are the ingredients in styrofoam anyways? Does it have any trans-fat? I know I've had the peanuts before but I've never actually seen how it's baked. "You're an idiot." I'll DVR some Food Network.

Hit the jump for a video of the cake in motion.

Thanks to Jackie, who agrees the best cakes are the ones with scantily clad dancers that jump out. Maybe just not for a 10-year old's birthday though.
