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!:

1. Piranha Flower from Super Mario Bros.
