Video: Possibly the Most Legendary Zelda Cake Ever

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Seriously, this is ridiculous

Some video game fans, particularly those in the Nintendo camp, sure go to a lot of trouble to demonstrate just how much they love their chosen games or franchises. It also seems that there's no better combination than big gaming fans doing something for their own little gamers, as this cake based on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword demonstrates.

There's a lot of actual cake in this construction, but also a fair number of small mechanical parts to give it various moving parts. It's on a truly impressive scale, with Skyloft, the Sealed Grounds, Faron Woods and a host of characters all making an appearance. To give you an idea of the amount of effort something like this takes, below is a quote from the blog entry by its creators, Will and Liliana Turnbow.

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 video below shows the full cake in all of its glory, along with some footage showing how it was pulled together. We're sure it tastes delicious, too.

Wow, you really have to watch the video to appreciate the whole thing!

But is this really a cake? Which parts of it are edible?

On the Eurogamer article they showed as Super Mario Galaxy cake too. It must take them forever to get everything together.

The worst part is that those kind of cake arent good to eat. Its not bad, but its a regular mixture for cake! Eggs, flour, milk and vanilla. No stuffing, no nothing, only a flour cake!

there are ways to make yummy decorative cakes, but this does look like it falls into the "it was so cool that we didn't eat it until it was out and poked around for three days".

@WingedFish you mean Ace of Cakes, I don't believe in Cake Boss, it somehow got more popular than the original awesome cake show

anyway, OMG IT MOVES! moving cakes are cool



Edgy said:

Awesome cake! I don't care if its bog standard ingredients, etc, it's still an edible work of art!

With those skills, why make it a cake? Just make it a toy, it´s not like it´s going to taste really good anyway.

@Savino you said it best. i went to a wedding once where the cake tasted like room temperature butter without salt. in other words, animal fat. no flavor, nothing. it was awful. most wedding cakes built this way without flavor are terrible and only for looks. useless

It looks more like a sculpture than a cake. I wonder if tastes good though..I also wonder how many eggs were used to make this thing. Hmmm... maybe I should hire a food critic.



shinesprite said:

Wow, truly astonishing, is that a small screen inside the temple of time (for the moving cogs)?



kurtasbestos said:

I kind of feel like this would be even cooler if they had made it out of something like... oh, I don't know, clay? You know, something that won't decompose over time. Still, it's pretty impressive.

The best thing about this cake is you don't have to horizontal slash then vertical slash those piranha plants, you can just eat them
