Occasionally I come across a well made geekcake and have to think long and hard about whether or not to post it here.
Sometimes the original link site has material not family friendly. I have tried to make sure all my posts and linked sites are suitable for all. I think the topic of cake should always be all inclusive !
Sometimes the topic of the cake is something I just don't understand the logic behind - I found a topless Lara Croft cake once, and no I'm not providing the link. :D
Sometimes the inspiration for the cake is - well shall we say adult themed - like the Legend of the Overfiend cake I once found, and no I'm not posting the link to that one either. :P
Today's cake, is none of the above, but I do question the wisdom of making such a cake for a 4 year old.
Grand Theft Auto (TM), is a well crafted, multi-series console game which deals with adult themes. It's always deal with adult themes. The creators revel in thier ability to make the game as edgy as they like with no fears of upsetting their intended adult audience.
The games official website frontpage has looped welcome messages. Some examples of which are:
Welcome to Liberty City: A social experiment gone terribly wrong. Welcome to Liberty City: Where the American Dream goes to die Welcome to Liberty City: Criminals and Degenerates welcome Welcome to Liberty City: The center of the known universe, for egomaniacs Welcome to Liberty City: Overpriced real estate in a cultural wasteland Welcome to Liberty City: Great to visit, even better to leave
The "hot coffee mod" caused a controversy in 2004, but in reality the 'cut scene' did not siginificantly deviate from the style of authorised game play.
Please don't misunderstand me, I have no problem with adults playing any GTA game. The Video Game Rating Content system of all participaing countries seems to largely work, but it is deinately not a game for 4 year olds.!
Still, an most excellant geekcake don't you agree?
The torso is cake covered with buttercream, and dressed with fondant clothing, arms, and feet. The ’skull’ is made of “brown crunch,” which is like Rice Krispies Treats. But… brown. Fondant makes up the features of the head, including those distinctively-Yoda-ish ears.
The creator has her own blog which gives you step by step instructions on how to create your own Yoda cake here:
