We feature a lot of incredibly impressive cakes on Buzz Patrol, some are inspired by cult movies or TV shows, others feature infamous comic book characters or gaming heroes and heroines. But I think this animated Zelda cake might just take the biscuit. I would have to say that it is the most impressive themed cake that I have ever seen!
The masterpiece was created by Will Turnbow and his wife for their daughter’s 10th birthday and I think it’s fair to say that she is one incredibly lucky young lady.
The cake is based on ‘The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword’ and includes the Sealed Grounds, the Faron Woods, Skyloft and a whole host of characters and other elaborate features from the Nintendo classic.
In the YouTube description for the video, Turnbow says;
“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…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).”
Whilst watching the video that showcases this incredible creation, all I could think to myself was “there’s no way that’s a cake, it just can’t be” and then it gets to the bit where they show how it’s made and the how the parts move and my mind boggled a small bit.
I can’t believe they let those kids eat the thing, I would want to keep it forever. I suppose the saying “you can’t have your cake and eat it” has never been more relevant!
