I don’t know about you, but I must admit that the thought of attempting to bake something edible in the kitchen puts me in a cold sweat. I bow down and marvel at anyone that can juggle the correct ingredients, technical expertise, timings and creative artistry to pull off a show stopper cake! This video by Sugar High Score is a shining example of how to do it right with a fantastic Link’s Awakening twist!
I absolutely love this Link’s Awakening cake, from the incorporation of the Switch into the design to the choice of flavors. Professional baker Stephanie’s attention to detail is second to none, and she has some pretty clever tricks to pull off the overall look of Koholint Island. Who would have thought grain crackers and brown sugar could make sand for the beach? And the effect of the waves with royal icing and a paint brush definitely had a Bob Ross vibe going on!
Sugar High Score is the dream team of Stephanie and Shelby that are addicted to games and baking. Some of their other baking ideas include: a Monopoly Gamer Cake, Cappy Cake from Mario Odyssey and a cake based on Cuphead.
So, does this cake leave your mouth drooling? Would you be willing to have a go at making it yourself? Or are you happy to just admire this piece of art in its fondant and buttercream glory? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
