Blow those candles out! Rio's Mario RPG Bundt cake

5:00 PM on 06.25.2009 // riomccarthy

[Editor's note: Rio McCarthy is amazing!!! She remade the cake boss from the greatest game ever and it looks delicious. I want to pull a Booster and eat it in one giant bite! -- CTZ]

Ever since Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars came out many moons ago, it has been my absolute favorite game of all time, as well as the game I most frequently replay. I try to make it a habit to at least beat the game once a year and it always delights me every time.

One of my favorite things about the game are the boss battles and there was always one in particular, Bundt. I mean seriously, who doesn't love a boss that's made out of cake? Well I do that's for sure, so I made him ... out of cake. 

Not only did I make Bundt (with Raspberry of course) I also made Chef Torte and his Apprentice! :D

Chef Torte! The cake's MOVING!

Poke. Poke. Poke.

:X Me and Bundt. I think we could be soulmates, what do ya know? :P

All in all, this was around a four plus day project. It took me two days to do all the work on the cake, plus another two days to finish up Chef Torte and the Apprentice. Bundt is completely edible and made from a lot of stuff I've never used before such as gum paste, and whatever other stuff you make cakes from that I found in the decorating aisle. I make note that before this project I didn't even know how to bake a cake, so I'd say this turned our pretty good since I never have used most of the materials before.

Chef Torte and the Apprentice are completely hand sculpted from Sculpey and I painted the both of them to match their in game colors.

It may have been such a small part in the game, but it will always rank as one of my absolute favorites and it's made me beyond giddy to recreate this scene in cake.

Enjoy! :D

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

Reading the Star Citizen expose reminded me of the whole Firefall mess last year. [url=""]Found the gamefront article [/url]

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]
