Skyward Sword Cake

Get the creators of this cake the Award for Best Parenting 2013. Will and Liliana, responsible for the equally fantastic Super Mario Galaxy cake, made their daughter a Zelda cake like no other – a huge, detailed and animated edible world based on Skyward Sword.

The top layer shows the entirety of Skyloft, complete with the Goddess statue, a flying Link atop a Loftwing, and Ghirahim atop a menacing tornado. The lower half, separated by a layer of fluffy (and delicious-looking) clouds, shows the Sealed Grounds. Zelda and Impa can be seen guarding the temple, while Groose is hard at work building the catapult cart track in order to keep the Imprisoned at bay.

Hit the jump for the video, and make sure you stick around for the second half for a good look at the work-in-progress shots!

Sure, this is actually more of a diorama than a cake, considering the majority of the piece is inedible. But who’d want to eat and destroy this thing? The construction is incredible, and the motorised figures really bring it to life. There are so many details – Scrapper carrying the pinwheel, Beedle’s flying shop circling Skyloft, the realistically-moving Deku Baba…

With Rice Krispies used to create the Temple entrance, I can now understand why the Imprisoned is so relentless on destroying it. The guy is probably starving after years of captivity.

You can check out even more high quality close-up shots of the cake here on Will and Liliana’s website.

    I would be so sad to see that thing eaten. What a ton of work for a masterpiece. Kudos to you, she will never forget that birthday. P.S. Great use of the Link Skyward Sword action figure.

      It's not an action figure..!
      But yeah, I thought the same. They must really love their daughter if they put that much effort into a disposable piece.
      I couldn't say the same for my parents.

      • Actually it is. It says in the YouTube description that a Figma Link action figure was used.

        But the rest of the characters were custom-made 🙂

    Wow, that's amazing! Must have been so hard! I would never eat that cake lol, I'd buy a special fridge to keep it in lol

    Why making a product based on the Sonic 2006 of the Zelda series?

    • Not only is that not true, that's just UNCALLED for, man. No game should have to put up with that kind of abuse. It's like racism or something.

      • Death The Kid

        No it isn't, don't even kid yourself the game is awful for a Zelda.
        It would have been nothing but mediocre at best if it wasn't a Zelda but "Screw you it has green hat and golden triangles 10/10!" when the game is just objectively bad.
        Want me to go into detail? I have enough material to write a paper about just how bad it is.
        If you take out most of the glitches, Sonic 06 still plays a bit worse than its Sonic Adventure counterparts and would have been nothing but mediocre, so really, in truth it is the 06 of the Zelda series.

        • Death The Kid

          When compared to other Zelda games, it's objectively pretty bad***
          And it's not a black sheep like Zelda II so it can't make excuses, it's just not nearly as good.

          • MikeL

            You're objectively an idiot

          • I don't need to "kid myself" because I'm very confident in my opinion of the game. If you have your reasons for disliking the game you are welcome to express them. Here's mine: I thoroughly enjoyed the visual style, music, story, motion controls, combat and Ghirahim as a villain.

            It's important to note that in my original comment I was obviously joking. There is no need to take everything so seriously. That said, I am a huge fan of Skyward Sword and if I really didn't like it I'd be the first to admit it.

          • Death the Kid

            You're right.
            I'm just trying to be argumentative, since I just replayed it and remembered the 5000 reasons I don't like it at all.
            If we're just talking fun then it doesn't really matter, you can still enjoy a mediocre game.
            Just gets to me how much better it should have been, and easily could have been but wasn't.

      Screw you! SS is one of the best Zelda games.
