Gamer Arts & Crafts : Cuppycake edition!

7:45 AM on 02.15.2008 // riomccarthy

[Editor's note: Riomccarthy is a very talented artist. She loves to make hats (look at her past C-Blogs, Cosplay, and is a just all around awesome gal. Yesterday, she continued to prove how amazing she is by making all these videogame themed cupcakes including a very delicious looking Mr. Destructoid cupcake. NOM NOM NOM! -- CTZ

OK, so this was definitely a first for me. Well, not the making cupcakes part, but you know, this is my first time I'd ever decorated them with fondant. I started about 11 a.m. this morning baking them, and a little over 10 hours later I had these!

More of the process and tasty looking pictures after the jump! 



Now, it's not often that I have quite that much free time to do that brain numbing of decorating, but it was enjoyable. I think they all turned out pretty well, especially given the time and effort it took. I have some fondant left over so I'll probably make more at some point, but not nearly as many in one day next time.

Just for a note: All of the colors were hand dyed, as the fondant starts out as white. So all of these were hand crafted and hand dyed.

From this:



To this!:



So what do you think?

In case there are any that are questionable, here's a list of what's what:
1. Piranha Flower from Super Mario Bros.
2. Team Rocket's R from Pokemon
3. Mr. Destructoid!!!!!! =P
4. Chain Chomp from Mario.
5. Triforce from Zelda
6. Star from Mario
7. Pacman
8. Blinky from Pacman
9. Cactaur from Final Fantasy
10. Pikachu from Pokemon
11. Chocobo from Final Fantasy
12. Slime from Dragon Quest
13. ShinRa logo from Final Fantasy VII
14. Companion Cube from Portal
15. Mog from Final Fantasy

Enjoy everyone!

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.

I've been thinking of starting up a criticism-minded "game of the month" type podcast. Would anyone be interested in something like that? If you'd wanna be part of it, let me know, I'm generating ideas and looking for contributors
