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!

The Banner Saga is pretty much a work of art. It's so incredibly pretty. I wonder why there aren't more games that use such a striking art style? The only other game with a similar-ish art style that comes to my mind is Cuphead.

The best Pokémon is, and always has been, Blastoise.

Why is there so much love for Pokemon, when only Digimon can you offer you the One True Waifumon?

Why is steam having yet another sale? At this point they'd be better just reducing the prices of the games year-round, instead of having the same games at the same discounted prices every 2 months.

Trubbish is the best Pokemon because he's basically a pile of trash.

CONTROVERSY: I'm playing Ninja Gaiden Black right now and the truth of the matter is that Ninja Gaiden 2 is the better game. The combat is just so much better, and the pacing is as well. NGB is still a 10/10 to me though. NGB's combat is just alot slower

Since I was a lad who actually followed Pokemon, Scyther was green and sharp and cut his way to my little heart, where he remains today.

This is a PSA: Never trust anyone who doesn't wet their toothpaste before brushing their teeth! Those people are clearly evil and their waifus are probably shit too!
