six, I say .., SIX Halo geek cakes !

As I've been building this blog, I have noticed that certain geek subjects seem to draw out the creative cake-makers out there.

Consoles are popular presumably because they are square/rectangular, and therefore easy to ice. Daleks also seem to inspire the cake makers. Mario and associated characters seem to draw out those who most want an icing challenge, and sometimes the dedication of the Star Wars cake-making fans has to be seen to be believed.

One thing has surprised me though, and that is the seeming popularity of Halo( 1,2 and 3) cakes.

The Halo symbol is a tricky thing to reproduce normally let alone in icing, and the Chieftain / Helmet shapes don't lend themselves easily to cake baking, yet time and time again, when I search for geekcake I find Halo yumminess on display.

So now, without further rambling, I present to you my (current) six most favorite Halo geekcakes.


Someone cares for Jason enough to not only make him this cake,
but work his face into the picture too!

This intimidating creature is a Chieftain rendered in cheesecake!
Found over at the Layers of Love blog.

The Mum Loves Cooking blog describes all the steps needed to create this chocolately beauty:


Again over at Layers of Love, someone lucky called Nate gets a special Master Chief cake:


From A wonderfully shiny Helmet cake:


Created at a local Bakery to order, the ingredients were not specified beforehand. Apparently Once the owners could bear to eat it, they discovered the Chief had Rice Krispie treats for brains!

Finally this Flickr creation is so white it's almost magical:


Thank you for Jean-Luc David over at Flickr, for sharing pictures of that with the internet

That's all for now see you Friday!
